Red Hen Books & Toys provides special, hard-to-find, educational materials, toys, and books for discriminating parents and educators worldwide. The online store was established in 2006 by Scott Bultman, a former co-owner of Uncle Goose Toys, his family's toy manufacturing business, and a father of three children who were raised in Montessori and nature education programs. With over 30 years in the toy business as a manufacturer, retailer, and award-winning toy designer, Scott knows toys and has the industry experience to locate unique quality items. He is a toy collector, toy designer and toy historian who has produced the upcoming documentary series on the history of kindergarten. Scott's knowledge of preschool and K-12 design education comes from work at Froebel USA.
Red Hen is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Local deliveries or pick-up orders can be arranged for the west Michigan area. We ship internationally (especially to APO/FPO) and offer a variety of payment and delivery options for our overseas customers.
Our mission is to keep certain types of toys on the market that the big box stores have abandoned. As a result, some of our items are Red Hen exclusives (and whenever possible, made in the USA). If you have suggestions for toys we should carry, please let us know.
