American History Pioneer Folk Toys, Games, Crafts, and Music from Homestead Folk Toys in the Historical Village of Nashville, Indiana
A Homestead site. Site designed and hosted by Homestead Folk Toys.

All of our historical folk toys, games, crafts & instruments
are packaged in clear, high-quality poly bags and include a
history card or historical header and instructions for use.
Through the years, customers have told us that they
prefer this simplicity of packaging. The simplicity of design
gives more authenticity to the product, prolongs the shelf-
life, avoids the appearance of being mass-produced (and,
incidentally, keeps the toys safe from the 'little hands' that
we all love and adore in the gift shops).
