NEW YORK CITY  - A Bruder forestry machinery set and Stanley woodcrafting tools for kids are among wood-related on display at the 2016 American International Toy Fair, which runs through Tuesday at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Unfortunately Bruder has equipped its forestry set with plastic logs, but other exhibitors have done better.


Lincoln Logs reshore to Made in USA for 100th Birthday

Turning 100, the iconic log building toy is now made in Burnham, Maine.

Stanley Jr. has a commendable goal of getting kids to use their hands to make things, offering wood craft kits and tool sets for children are ergonomically designed for children's hands and physical skills. The line will be distributed by Reeves International in North America and is scheduled to reach store shelves by June 2016.

The Stanley Jr. line consists of two tool sets and DIY wood craft and activity kits featuring fun toys that kids can build and play with. Each kit contains all of the parts and hardware needed for assembly along with illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions.  Best of all, families can enjoy valuable shared time working on each project; while the child gets to build fun toys and feel accomplished. 
Also notable are Lincoln Logs, returning to Made in USA of real wood for the toy's centennial.
