Madison County organic toy creator Mossy Creek Woodworks got some big-time press coverage early in November when one of its products was featured in a segment on E! News.
Mossy Creek, which was started in 1974, uses local woods to craft hand-made organic toys. About 200 retailers in the U.S. and Japan carry its products.
The company uses no chemicals or paint on the toys and allow the wood to air dry before carving them into anything from baby rattles to train sets.
Mossy Creek is no stranger to attention. The company’s toys have been on display at New York’s City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Mossy Creek generates all of its business from word-of-mouth sales and repeat business.
