MONROE, Ct. - Wooden toymaker Milton & Goose will relocate its operations from Lancaster, Pennsylvania to Monroe, Connecticut. 
 
The company, known for its handcrafted wooden kitchen sets and dollhouses, will lease 9,000 square feet of a 21,000-square-foot multi-tenant building. 
 
"We are thrilled to be moving our operation to Connecticut and are particularly grateful to the town of Monroe for helping us establish this facility,” Shari Raymond, Milton and Goose president, said. “We look forward to bringing jobs and heirloom-quality toys to the area.”
 
 
Raymond founded the company in 2017 to “provide children and their parents with nontoxic and heirloom-quality toys to last generations.” Though not Amish-owned, several of Milton & Goose's product lines are made by second-generation Amish toymakers. The company also sources a line from a team of woodworkers in Ohio.
 
 
All toys, which include extremely detailed play kitchens, play good, toy furniture, and dollhouses, are made from maple, hickory, cherry, and baltic birch plywood. One kitchen sells for $649.
