Peapods Favorites is our continuing series about our all-time favorite toys. Keep and an eye on Facebook and Pinterest for more favorites through the holiday season!
We really love DoodleTown Cars! What can we say? They just make us happy. They're made in Minnesota, they're safe for all ages, they smell wonderful, they make perfect stocking stuffers, and they're great for pretend play, block play, or travelling. And, Mike and Linda, the folks who make them, happened to be just about the nicest people we've ever met.
Mike began making DoodleTown Cars back in 1972 and his classic design has endured. Over the years, he's sold his cars to toy stores across the country, to a US President, and at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. Today, DoodleTown cars can be found in dozens of small toy stores from coast to coast, but we're proud to be Mike and Linda's biggest fans. Over the years we've sold several thousand Doodles. We've probably sold more Doodle Cars than any other toy!
DoodleTown also recently added a semi truck and a train with tender that are on the same scale as the Doodle Cars.
We hope you like Doodles as much as we do!
