About Us:

The roots of Holgate Toy Company trace back to 1789, the year the U.S. Constitution was signed and George Washington became President. Cornelius Holgate established a woodworking shop outside of Philadelphia in a colonial village called Roxborough. After many years, the Holgate family moved the business to Kane, PA because of the abundant natural resources. In 1929, Holgate was one of the first toy companies in the US to research and develop the educational, preschool toy market for children. Holgate worked closely with the early educators in the emerging Kindergarten program to develop safe, educational toys that had play value. Many of today's toys were originally designed by Jarvis Rockwell, brother of famous illustrator Norman Rockwell. Rockwell's concern for safety, durability and multiple play earned him recognition as one of America's finest toy designers.

Holgate sells its current toy line throughout the US to specialty retailers, gift shops, hardware stores, mail order catalogs and school supply. Holgate has a large factory retail store and toy museum at its facility in Kane, located on historic and scenic U.S. Route 6. Call Holgate toll free at 1-800-499-1929 to request a free catalog, or visit us on-line at The factory store features many one-of-a-kind products plus a variety of other gift items.

Holgate makes a line of step stools for children that can be personalized with their name. And new to the line is a unique table and chair set that actually folds up flat for convenient storage and transport - no assebmly required!
