Timberworks Toys are heirloom-quality, hard maple wooden toys based on an old-fashioned wooden toy idea - with a new and inventive twist. They provide a unique combination of wood, wheels, and widgets - allowing for the creation of wheeled vehicles, bridges and multi-storied structures. Timberworks creations are educational and fun with large-scale lines. One of their sets even allows for the building of a 24” x 24” building or a covered bridge with 4’ long bridge deck. The sets are so versatile that they can be used to build bridges, log homes, multi-story buildings, and even cars and airplanes. Timberworks Toys are all-natural maple wooden toy building sets. The unique widgets made of eco-friendly “green” plywood are what really allow the children to create and build the great variety of structures unmatched by other wood log products on the market. The roof panels used for the log house are strapped together with hook and loop T’s, and can be rearranged to form the bridge deck. The other widgets allow for the log timbers to build vertically and interlock. It is perfect for parents, grandparents, institutions, or anyone who wants a quality American-made wooden construction set for their creative-minded children. There is nothing else like it on the market.

The mission of Timberworks Toys is to create a robust, wooden construction set manufactured in the United States – and includes a variety of interesting personal stories of American entrepreneurship. American suppliers have been chosen to provide materials and by buying these products consumers are helping support American jobs. The textile manufacturing company that makes Timberworks Toys’ signature duffel bags was bought out by a foreign manufacturer and was saved by local townspeople & investors. A few people brought the company back to save as many jobs as they could in their historic 50 year old warehouse. In addition to this, the hardwood used to produce the timbers is harvested and managed by a small family-owned sawmill that emphasizes and practices personal stewardship of local trees. All of the other Timberworks Toy components are manufactured in the United States including: solid hard maple, hard maple plywood, aluminum extrusion axles, plastic blow-molded wheels, and hook & loop T’s – all of which are beautiful, durable, child-friendly materials. The original designer and his team of cabinetmakers transform the raw materials of lumber and hard maple plywood into the unique timbers and widgets of these sets – ready for the children in your life to enjoy.
