K’NEX® Introduces 10 New Made in the USA Sets For 2015

LINCOLN LOGS: Now MADE IN THE USA!

LINCOLN LOGS, part of the K’NEX family of brands, is pleased to announce that its 2015 product line will be manufactured in the United States by Pride Manufacturing in Burnham, Maine.

LINCOLN LOGS, part of the K’NEX family of brands, is pleased to announce that its 2015 product line will be manufactured in the United States by Pride Manufacturing in Burnham, Maine.

Developed in 1916 by the son of famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, LINCOLN LOGS is a classic toy brand that has been entertaining and teaching children for nearly 100 years. A brand known for quality and durability, LINCOLN LOGS has become more than just a toy… it’s an authentic piece of Americana! Building with LINCOLN LOGS sets helps children develop fine motor and problem solving skills.

Following industry trends, LINCOLN LOGS production was moved overseas in the mid 20th century. K’NEX, who licenses the LINCOLN LOGS brand from Hasbro, has manufactured LINCOLN LOGS since 1999. A family owned business, K’NEX is known for its made-in-the-USA construction toy line that encourages kids to build worlds they love. In 2012, K’NEX brought the production of TINKERTOY®, another line K’NEX licenses from Hasbro, back to the United States, where it is mass produced by its subsidiary company, The Rodon Group, in Hatfield, Pennsylvania.

Since The Rodon Group specializes in plastics manufacturing, K’NEX had to search for a wood manufacturing facility that could match the precision and detail required in a line as beloved as LINCOLN LOGS. They found that partner in Pride Manufacturing. Primarily known for the manufacturing of numerous engineered wood products, Pride Manufacturing is the world’s leading supplier of wooden golf tees and related golf accessories. Together, K’NEX and Pride are manufacturing the high-quality, real-wood logs consumers have come to know and love, and K’NEX is pleased to include them in its 2015 product line, as detailed below.
