As might be known to most, Lancaster County is home to a large Amish community and they possess considerable skill in craftsmanship. Amish craftsmanship focuses on durability and functionality and they strive to create only high-quality, sustainable items. The Amish might be most known for their skill in making high-quality furniture, but they are also skilled in creating educational, wooden toys for children. While they carry the same high-quality values in their toys, they focus on education versus entertainment.
For example, we had the opportunity to interview the owner of the local business, Lapp’s Toys and Doll Furniture. They have provided families with quality children’s toys and furniture since the late 1970’s. Their collection of heirloom quality, handcrafted wooden products are built to stand the test of time and are meant to be carried on through many generations. Here, you will find the most basic of designs for toy airplanes, cars, trucks, etc. The reasoning is that it’s better for the child’s brain to make the noises and move the vehicles themselves. These days, it’s hard to escape being entertained by a screen, which could stunt young minds when it comes to creativity and imagination. The simplicity of these toys encourage children to create their own worlds and have limitless enjoyment. Click here to shop locally, handmade toys.
