About Me

Hello! My goal is to create a convenient way to find American made goods of all sorts. I host a new giveaway nearly every week, and I add new links every day! *I do not get paid for any of this. I just want to show Americans how easy (and important) it is to support companies who are manufacturing high quality goods right here in the USA and hiring American workers! Buy American!

I really loved the hopscotch kit and the rulers. The hopscotch would be terrific for me to use with the kids I nanny for considering that they have never played it as a competitive game, but rather as a series of jumps with no real point. The rulers just seem like they would be an effective way to keep things organized and to promote education in younger kids.

Having four boys and being here in NC.... we have to love Blackbeard’s last Stand Game Tin! I think I have seen some of these products in museum gift stores and Cracker Barrel as well as other places. Beautiful products.

I found the Roy Toy Log Cabin Canister. I used to have a log cabin building set when I was little and wanted my kids to have them but never could get them because they were too expensive. Lately I've been looking to get some for my nieces but again...too expensive for a large set. I found there on the Channel Craft Toys site. Brought back lots of memories. Y'all have a great idea going here with these sponsored giveaways. I'm sure everyone appreciates it.

My kids would love the coins!

CanCan said...

Classic toys are a special weakness of mine. I like a lot of things on the website, like the classic games in little tins. I also think the historical documents are a really neat product!

Bebemiqui said...

I like the lunastix. :0)

Melissa Rodriguez Photography said...

What a great company. My little one would love the heart bubble wand.

Jennifer said...

What a tough decision! My kids would like either one of the log building sets (the more pieces, the better).

I really liked Guillow’s Sky Streak Power Plane!

Wow, love the toys. Spent hours as a child playing hopscotch and playing with "Lincoln Logs". Flew a lot of balsam planes, also. Great toys, great books, great sight!

So hard to choose. My kids would love so many of the things you offer.

Lately my children have enjoyed learning about different birds so I would have to say the " Birds Of All Kinds Softcover Book" would be my top choice.

There are really too many to choose from, but if I had to pick I love the balsa wood planes - I loved playing with those as a child. But, I also love the log building set, the tops & spinners, and the bubble wands.

Sherry {My Collective Life} said...

Oh my gosh! What a neat company! Thank you so much for introducing us to them.
I can't choose just one thing!! My little guy collects coins, so those would be fun. I also love the idea of the games in tins... boxes always get ruined so quickly, ya know? The Woods Are Full Of Them Vintage Game Tin looks very interesting!

marshwins said...

Oh it would definitely have to be the Roy Toy Log Cabin Canister. Surely does bring back memories!!!

ellinghouse said...

probably the puzzles are my favorite...thanks for a great giveaway...
