We here at Playskool are so proud that our brand was created by two inspiring women who were school teachers in Milwaukee, WI. These teachers believed in learning through playing and that is what we are still about today!
Our first toys launch-woo hoo! The Build at Will Dollhouse and The Home Kindergarten.
Just for tiny tots, we made the PLAYSKOOL Blocks of smooth, natural wood - perfect for little hands.
We made the PLAYSKOOL Bead Counter of colorful beads for grouping in two’s, three’s etc to help prepare kids for early math.
A classic! Our PLAYSKOOL Nok-Out Bench relieves the urge to pound and make noise… Better than banging on the furniture!
Stack ‘em, pull them off, stack ‘em again! Kids love to do things again and again, and that‘s why we made the PLAYSKOOL Ring Stack!
Create your dream home! The already popular Lincoln Logs are added to the PLAYSKOOL line. We love this classic toy! Did you know it was designed and developed by John Lloyd Wright, son of one of America’s most famous architects, Frank Lloyd Wright?
In 1952, our favorite spud, Mr. Potato Head is born and makes history at an early age – he is the first toy ever advertised on network TV. This first MR. POTATO HEAD toy contained only parts and cost $.98. Parents supplied children with real potatoes for the body.
We introduced the PLAYSKOOL Play Telephone as a “valuable, sturdy play tool that develops practical, social experiences”…. And of course we all know how much kids love to play with phones!
We developed the Take Apart Truck for kids who love watching wheels spin and making things “GO!”
Focused on helping little ones ride a bike, we wheeled out the classic “first bike” – the Tyke Bike.
Dressy Bessy and Dapper Dan are cuddly dress-up friends that help teach little hands how to button and zipper, so kids can help themselves get dressed too!
Weebles wobble into homes everywhere! We love these little resilient pals – you just can’t knock ‘em down!
The Sit ‘n Spin gets kid moving across the nation! Perfect for the kid that can’t sit still – this seat moves with them!
We’re over the moon for our space-aged friend Alphie, who teaches everything from colors, numbers, and letters to opposites!
After a long day of play, Gloworm makes the perfect cuddly, soothing “good night friend.”
Kids everywhere are gettin’ busy with our Busy Gears!
Imagination takes shape when PLAY-DOH Compound joins PLAYSKOOL in 1991!
Tinkertoys have been inspiring kids to create and build for nearly 100 years! In 1998, this classic toy was inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame.
Recognizing that moms wanted to make learning to walk and move more fun, we created the Step Start Walk’ n Ride.
