Harper Toy invents and manufactures unique handcrafted toys for children. These toys, game and a puzzle, are designed and produced in our studio and factory located in Oldenburg Indiana. Only one of our products, Ballinko Basic Builder 44 pc. set, has parts made in China. That outsourced choice allows us to lower the retail price for the set to $30. Animatables, the "build it and move it" building sets, as well as our soon be announced TREE BALLinko game and Buckyball puzzle are being made in the US and are available only from this website and on Etsy (harpertoy store). You won't find them on Amazon----or even in specialty toy stores. You can buy them here--direct from the manufacturer. Unique hand-crafted wooden toys made in the US, interesting toys for 5 year olds and up.
