Milton & Goose was founded in 2017 to provide children and their parents with nontoxic and heirloom-quality toys to last generations. They say "Necessity is the mother of invention," so who better to invent than a mother in search of a solution? Milton & Goose’s founder, Shari Raymond, was hunting for a play kitchen for her children and couldn’t find anything that met three reasonable requirements: made in the USA, high-quality wood, and a chic, modern design, so she set out to create her own.
They interviewed dozens of manufacturers to find the right fit before teaming up with their talented second-generation Amish toymakers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They then spent months sourcing the best materials, from solid woods and sturdy hinges to the safest paints and finishes they could find. And when the final prototype was ready and approved, they went through rigorous testing by an independent third-party, CPSC-approved safety lab to make sure they meet or exceed the highest federal safety standards.
