with nontoxic finishes
We're passionate about making quality toys that delight both children and their parents.
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 son 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.
Milton & Goose play kitchens are unlike any other. Our play kitchens went through a year and half of design and development. It started with sketches upon sketches, inspired by real designer kitchens online, in magazines, and in gorgeous homes. We then collaborated with toy designers, educators, parents, and of course, tons of kids, to shape the ultimate play kitchen. We interviewed dozens of manufacturers to find the right fit before teaming up with our talented second-generation Amish toymakers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We then spent months sourcing the best materials, from solid woods and sturdy hinges to the highest quality magnetic chalkboard available. And when the final prototype was ready and approved, we went through rigorous testing by an independent third-party, CPSC-approved safety lab to make sure we meet or exceed the highest federal safety standards. Our flagship Milton & Goose play kitchen isn't just any toy, it's a children's piece that your little ones will enjoy from day to day, sibling to sibling, and generation to generation.
