Playful Factory: Project Launch of Pull-Along Toys

Pull-along toys are a classic. They are designed for toddlers on the go... crawling, walking, and running. You can find them in any store and even on the big screen. Most of today's pull-alongs are made from some type of plastic. My favorites in this genre all happen to be made primarily from wood. Wooden pull-along toys are hard to find, but once you do, they can last a lifetime and beyond. This week we will be designing, making, and giving away a wooden pull-along toy. Keep up to date throughout the week to see product research, get safety tips, submit and see toy designs, see the final design, and get a tutorial to make your own. You will want to participate in this week's design process to qualify to win the free toy! The first step in this design process is to research existing wooden pull-along toys on the market. These are some of my favorites from my research. Feel free to add your favorite via leaving a comment. ^ Sit'n Walk Puppy by PlanToys ($18) ^ Pic Pic the Hedgehog by Vilac ($56) ^ Ma-Me-Pa by Maya Organic Toys ($35) ^ Kiwi by Keko ($36) ^ Theo the Escargot Pull Toy by Vilac ($33) ^ Pull-Along Snail by PlanToys ($18) ^ Caramel Pull-Along Dog by Djeco ($25) ^ Pull Along Helicopter by Brio ($10) ^ Zara the Vulture by Vilac ($70) ^ Pull-Along Catepillar by PlanToys ($16) Next I will be sharing safety tips for designing and buying wooden toys.

    Thanks for everyones responses… This is great! The stability of the pull-along toys is starting to become a theme. There must be some seriously wobbly toys out there. Thanks for your input.

    I love the escargot! It is brightly colored, and appears to be the most stable even with an uncoordinated toddler trying to make it work. This website is the BOMB!

    Everett wants the helicopter… really bad. Maybe for Christmas!

    I’m going to have to vote snail or helicopter. But, I would have to truly pick whichever ones don’t tip on their side when an uncoordinated toddler gives them a tug. Any ideas?

    The helicopter and the vulture are so dang cute. This is a really cool website Collin. Can’t wait to see more!

    How could I possibly choose just one? My husband loves the escargot one, and I’m a sucker for the caterpillar and the hedgehog.

    It is hard to choose… I love the pull-along toys you suggested, they are great! Especially the penguins!
    (Tell Brooklyn that I really like elephants too!)
