Chickory Wood Products offers finely crafted, handmade hardwood toys including wooden trains, trucks, ships and airplanes. John Kranitz started the business in 1982 when he made toys for his two young sons for Christmas. Soon friends and family asked to buy them and the company grew from there selling at craft fairs all over Wisconsin. All the toys are made individually from their own designs and have become highly prized as toys and collectibles. Made with pride in Mequon, Wisconsin.
