About Little Apple Wooden Puzzles
I am Steve Hall of Manhattan, Kansas (the Little Apple!). My wife Linda and I have five grown daughters and eleven grandchildren. I began making children’s furniture and toys for my daughters many years ago, gradually selling a few of them to friends and at craft shows. In 1992, I bought an established home-based puzzle business from a local couple. My “hobby” has grown to the extent that now both my wife and I work full time making and marketing our puzzles, mostly at craft shows and this web site.
Each puzzle is a unique, hand-crafted, heirloom-quality toy, crafted lovingly by our own hands. The puzzles are made of Baltic birch plywood and brightly colored with non-toxic, lead-free wood stains that enhance (not cover) the beauty of the natural wood grain. Each puzzle undergoes extensive sanding to insure a smooth, safe finish.
I am a charter member of the Kansas Quality Woodworkers Association and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce.
