Middlebury, VT—Best known for the NameTrains and Montgomery Schoolhouse products, Maple Landmark has taken some of their base products and branched out into construction kits for kids.
Using My Little Scoots! sized bodies, Maple Landmark has created the perfect rainy day, birthday party, or anytime activity. The Made By Men kits come in 3 different vehicle styles—truck, train, or tugboat. Vehicle bodies are 4" long, crafted from pine and sanded smooth to the touch. Each kit comes with 4 natural colored wheels and axles for assembly plus the vehicle body. The train engine kit even comes with a smokestack. Easy to follow assembly instructions are included under the tag.
For some children, decorating the Made By Men vehicle is the best part! Stickers, crayons, magic markers, paints, and glitter are just some of the mediums children can use to express themselves. For other children, the best part is the hammering and gluing. "When we take these to our local events, the children are so engaged it's really amazing. I think, as adults, we forget that children don't need batteries or video games to have fun, learn and be creative," states Jill Stackhouse, Sales Manager at Maple Landmark.
Made By Me's™ are also available in party packs for specialty toy stores that want to hold their own "Construction Event."
