Using the product research, development and design techniques that he had perfected with his first business, George proceeded to develop a company that carries virtually ALL the products he had previously developed AND over 75 new and exciting product offerings! In addition , George selected to add a popular line of nostalgic books to compliment his offerings.

All of the product offerings have been carefully researched and designed by George to insure historical accuracy; toys such as the Hornbook, Battledore and Shuttlecock, the Early American Hornbook Game, "Ring the Hob" outdoor Quoits, Native American Corncob Darts game, Five Stones, Marble-Shooter and the incredibly popular "Hand Fan."

With the aid of four generations of toymakers, George is commited to producing historically accurate American-made folk toys.
