Maple Landmark is a family-owned company in Middlebury, Vermont. Their toys are Vermont born and bred (or at least cut, sanded, and finished) and are made from locally harvested rock maple. Indeed, Maple Landmark is one of the few wholly Made in America toy companies left. We have carried their “Name Train”, as well as their individual track pieces, in the shop since we opened in 2007. Their toys are well-made, sturdy, and are guaranteed for life (if you lose a wheel, send it to them and they’ll fix it).
They also make some of the nicest cribbage boards and checker sets around. We are especially fond of their danish solitaire and soma cube puzzles and their cherry “railroad engine” cribbage board, but then we are especially fond of cribbage.
