Our History

Welcome to The Original Toy Company website!

 

Where our products are developed to stimulate and educate children, along with providing great educational play value. We have been know previous as Galt America distributors of Galt Toys. Our new company The Original Toy Company strives to bring distinctive products to the American market. The Original Toy Company’s founders (Kevin and Susan McGrath) have been recognized around the world for their commitment to craftsmanship, quality and design. The McGrath’s built and established The Original Toy Company to offer consumers and retailers within the United States a very unique and diverse educational specialty toy line. The McGrath’s strongly believe in traditional toys that not only offer unique play value but also will stimulate the early stages of our children’s lives.

 

Learning Through Play is not only fun, but also fundamental

Play helps a child to learn about the world and the environment by recognizing shapes, textures, spaces, color and by developing skills, all of which help in the development of intellectual and creative abilities. All of The Original Toy Company products such as our wooden toys, Orchard Toys from England, Bontempi Music from Italy, Gunther Toys from Germany and Dantoy from Denmark are specially designed to encourage and stimulate a child through play in a fun and interesting way.
