Mountain Boy Sledworks – Handmade wooden sleds & wagons

@NYC Toy Fair 2009 – I really liked seeing Mountain Boy Sledworks – Handmade wooden sleds & wagons – unlike the cheap plastic RadioFlyer wagons and Cheap-mart special these sleds and wagons are handmade in Colorado and are built to last – My favorite was the “citrus scooter”…

We are working hard to minimize the impact of all of our operations on the environment. Some key elements include: Using only recycled cardboard packaging. Choosing only fast-growing, common, sustainable hardwoods such as birch, willow and maple. Ensuring that every part of the wood is used. Smaller pieces are turned into kicksled slats or Christmas ornaments, and the smallest bits end up in our woodstove or in the wood-drying kiln. Just as important, making products that last! We think it makes sense to buy a sled (or wagon or scooter) that will last for years, rather than buying a cheaper sled that won’t last nearly as long.
