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!

Holgate Toys - Giveaway!!

Pop quiz: when was the Constitution of the United States of America signed?
The same year that Holgate Toys began its history: 1789!!!

Holgate Toys is truly an American tradition! They continue to make quality-crafted wooden toys that are both educational and fun!

Holgate Toys is very generously donating the Rocky Color Cone.
This was first introduced by Holgate in 1938 and remains a young toddlers favorite today. The rounded base is a trademark design from Holgate . . . many others have copied. Children are fascinated with the "rocky" action of the toy and the noise made from the wood rings being stacked on top of one another (plastic versions do not offer this sound). In order to enter:
- Go visit Holgate Toys and pick a favorite product
- Come back here and leave a comment listing that favorite

- Please enter only once, and make sure I have a way to contact you.
If you leave your email address, leave it in a coded fashion so that search engines will not pick it up. (such as: madeinusa(at)fastmail(dot)fm or madeinusaATfastmailDOTfm)

- Must have a U.S. Shipping Address
- Drawing closes on December 5 - Merry Christmas!!!

What great toys. They're colorful, sturdy, and look like lots of fun. The Hickory Dickory Dock Clock reminds me of something my mom had when we were kids.

I actually like the Rocky Color Cone the best. My son (41 years old now) had one and did most of this teathing on the smallest ring. I loved the fact that it was nonbreakable and so safe. I just might remember this for my two newest grandsons birthdays.

With American jobs going overseas this is a wonderful resource. After this year of watching Wall Street tank I've made a conscious decision to buy American even if it costs a bit more.

One of my faves from Holgate is the Hickory Dickory Dock Clock
