Company with 'Made in America' toys shows off product to Congresswoman

What started out on the crowd-funding website Kickstarter, is now a reality in Danbury for two fathers and two sons.  Luke's Toy Factory on East Liberty Street manufactures wooden toys. 

 

On Friday 5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty toured the facility to see their computer design and their models created by 3D printers.  The owners say they opened their store following a number of recalls from major toy manufacturers.  Esty touted the eco-safe plastics.  Luke’s Toy Factory designs and sells wooden toys with all materials and tools made in America.

 

The owners talked with Esty about a Small Business Administration loan they are applying for, and their interactions with the U.S. Patents office.

 

Esty also visited with a research clinic of Western Connecticut Health Network on Friday to learn more about their efforts to combat Lyme Disease and cancer.
