Good Company: Manhattan Toy Company

Manhattan Toy Company is based right here in Minnesota. Their office in downtown Minneapolis is where all the toy magic begins. Designs and color trends are researched. Ideas are then brought to life with toy designers on hand. They take a concept to reality. From there, the designs and drawings are sent off to a factory to get them made. They are then shipped back to Eden Valley, Minnesota. That’s where they are all packaged up and shipped out all over the world to places like Asia, Australia and Canada.

Manhattan Toy Company was started more than thirty years ago. And just like its name suggests, it was started in Manhattan, New York. Eventually, it was sold and brought to Minnesota.

Manhattan Toy Company makes all sorts of products, but they are probably best known for their baby toys. Jeanne Bleu is the company’s creative director. She says they are most proud of their passion for play. In a day and age when so many people are consumed by technology, it’s fun to see people embrace the idea of old school play and learning.

Manhattan Toy Company was kind enough to donate toys to the KSTP Stuff the Sleigh Campaign which is run by the Minneapolis and St. Paul Police Federations. Their goal is to help make the holidays a little brighter for kids.
