Pirates Land In Vermont!

Maple Landmark Introduces New Pirate Themed Products

Middlebury, VT—Although Vermont has no ocean frontage and pirates weren’t known to sail Lake Champlain, Maple Landmark Woodcraft has developed almost a dozen new pirate themed products for release at the upcoming 2013 winter trade shows. While most of the pirate products are additions to existing product lines, the collection itself would make any bounty hunter happy!

These products include two puzzles, the Pirate Ship shaped puzzle is an addition to the new line of shaped animal and vehicle puzzles released in the fall of 2012, a Treasure Map tray puzzle, memory tiles, yo-yo’s, bookends and room décor sign.

The Pirate Ship shaped puzzle measures about 10" X 13" and is cut from 1/8" hardwood plywood. The puzzle has 12 pieces and comes with a cloth pouch for storage. A larger version of our classic tray puzzles, the Treasure Map tray puzzle measures 11" x 14" and is also made from 1/8" hardwood plywood. The 15-piece treasure map is decorated with "quippy" names and kid friendly details. Both puzzles are printed with a durable non-toxic ink for hours of scallywag play!

The Pirate memory tile set comes with 24 tiles (12 pairs) of brightly colored pirate themed images. Each tile measures 2-1/2" square by 3/16" thick and is cut from high quality birch plywood. A cloth pouch for storage and instructions are included in the shrink wrapped package.

Rounding out the toy line are wooden yo-yos. The hardwood yo-yos are finished and assembled in Middlebury using domestic parts. An engraved jolly roger or printed compass rose decorates one side. Yo-yo measures approximately 2-1/4" diameter by 1-1/4" thick.

No first mate worth their salt would be caught without some pirate themed room décor! The pirate ship bookends are crafted from locally sourced, sustainably harvested maple with hardwood components, non-skid bottoms, and non-toxic finishes, the set measures approximately 10-1/2" long in starting length, 4-3/4" deep, and 6-1/2" tall. The pirate ship design is printed directly onto the side panels with durable non-toxic inks.

Finally a 7-1/2" square high quality birch plywood sign with the Jolly Roger and a very intimidating "Keep Out This Means You" printed on one side. The sign has a small hole in the top for hanging on door or wall. Designed for interior use only.

“We are excited about all the new products, kids love pirates,” commented Jill Stackhouse, Sales Manager. She went on to say, “we also hope that many of our coastal retailers will find something in the collection that they love.”
