From the Archives "Made by US: Name Trains"
It's our goal to provide our customers with the world's most beautiful, purposeful playthings. Many of our award-winning toys are designed and manufactured right here in the US. For the next few weeks, we will feature American-made toys in a series entitled, "Made by US."
Every child needs a NameTrain by Maple Landmark. They make a beautiful keepsake, a unique gift or a playful room decoration. Each piece is artfully crafted in Vermont by the dedicated employees of Maple Landmark.
NameTrains are a colorful, personalised, multi-piece train that are cherished throughout childhood. They are fully compatible with all the other major train sets including, Melissa & Doug, Thomas the Tank Engine & Brio. Children learn color & letter recognition when they pretend play with their NameTrains.
They are beautifully crafted from solid Rock Maple wood, which is responsibly harvested from locally sourced trees. Maple Landmark makes it a point to do business with other local companies, such as Lathrop's Maple Supply of Bristol, Vermont. Lathrop's Maple Supply provides all wood for Maple Landmark's products, and their family has been in the timber business in their community for 125 years. Both companies are careful to assure that no resources go to waste in the creation of their products. This effort is recognized by Dr. Toy with the Green Toy Company Award.
Maple Landmark is a family-owned business run by husand and wife team, Mike & Jill Rainville. Their two sons help out with the business when they are not away at school. The company provides many long-term, well-paying jobs to members of their community. They are committed to manufacturing the highest quality, safest toys on the market.
