Santa’s Hidden Workshop is in Vermont! Real Elves Make the Holiday Happen

Maple Landmark Toys is Santa's workshop

Middlebury, VT – This holiday season, like the previous 40 before it, Santa’s Workshop is located 3000 miles south of the North Pole in a simple wood and metal structure surrounded by a quiet Vermont community.  That workshop, nestled on the outskirts of Middlebury, bears the unassuming name “Maple Landmark” and is the go-to for high quality, American-made wooden toys and games.

Maple Landmark toysEvery day, Maple Landmark’s 35 “elves” make all of the products that the company sells. No gimmicks like “designed in the U.S.,” “packaged in the U.S.” or “assembled in the U.S.” –

everything is designed, made, packaged and sold from the modest factory.    

“We can discuss and demonstrate where our raw materials come from, how the products are developed and how items are made.  Customers like the fact their purchases are U.S. made and they see it as a bonus that the products are made by real “elves” in Vermont,” states John Gallagher, Sales Manager and Product Development team member.  Gallagher goes on, “a customer called after receiving our new holiday catalog and asked about the origin of a few items. When all was said and done, she placed an order and said she was returning what she bought elsewhere because it wasn’t made in the U.S.”

Name Train toys made at Maple Landmark

Although the NameTrains are the flagship products for Maple Landmark with over 11 million pieces sold, the wooden products company is so much more. Boasting 1500 available items including baby rattles and teethers, a variety of toy vehicles, stocking stuffers, classic board games, a large array of kitchen and home décor items, and even tap handles for the home brewer, Maple Landmark has any Santa covered.

Santa’s helpers can shop online and give a quality gift that’s made the way Santa’s elves would!
