We have ordered toys from you in the past and recently had the occasion to do so again.  Not only was the toy really nice - bright colors, excellent workmanship - but the cordial communication and the service you provided were outstanding!  We look forward to working with you again in the future when the occasion arises.

I bought my first stool 23 years ago from a craft show in Chicago.  I bought 4 in total.  I saved your flyer and found your website.  I can't wait to order a stool for my 2 year old Granddaughter's Birthday.

I am so excited for this!  I am 26 years old and became an aunt for the first time 5 months ago.  I still have my stool from when I was young so I was looking to get my nephew one.  I started looking online at etsy and other websites.  My mom suggested looking at the bottom of mine to see if any company info was there so I could get it from the same place.  What do you know, You Name It Toys was where my mom got mine from over 20 years ago.  I hope it is as special to my nephew as mine is to me!

THANK you so much!!!  Your stool puzzles have been a tradition in our family for over 30 years.  My mother started giving them to grandkids for their 2nd birthday.  My daughters are the oldest and they will be 33 in August.  I have continued the tradition with my grandkids.  I usually get them at the Fargo Street Fair, but this is the first we've had a birthday before the street fair so it caught me off guard.

I really appreciate your adding my order to your work this week!  Thanks again!

God Bless!

I just received my latest Puzzle Stool in the mail...it will be a Baby Shower Gift. 
The little boy I bought my 1st stool for is almost 24, now a second year dental student.  My favorite memory of him is watching him learn how to spell his name with his puzzle stool.
I have sent your stools all over the country and without exception the thank you notes always say it was their favorite gift.  A big thank you to you for helping us please so many young families over these many years.

My friend first saw your puzzles and stools at an art fair in Madison, WI many years ago. Subsequently, she and I both ordered stools for our grandchildren and, over time, several others for folks at work who were having babies. Now my second grandchild is about to celebrate her first birthday and here I am again! I love your puzzle stools and am confident in their safety. The kids love them too! Thanks and keep up the good work!

I have ordered around 10 puzzle stools from your company over the years. They have always been received with much happiness by the recipients and some, who are now quite grown up, still have their stools. I have always been happy with the products, the service and the ease of your website in ordering these stools, and will continue to do so as long as friends and relatives keep having babies! The puzzle stools are the perfect gift, well-made and very cute.

Thanks for letting me know of the arrival date for the stool puzzle that I ordered. I now have 8 granddaughters and have purchased one for each of them for their first Christmas. I discovered your puzzles when I went to the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida about ten years ago and immediately loved the puzzle stools. Another grandchild is scheduled to arrive next year, and I will be contacting you again! The puzzles have become an heirloom in my family!

Thank you so much! I was so happy to be able to get these stools. I got one for my other little grandson before when you were doing a show someplace here in Iowa 6 years ago. My daughter found your sticker on the bottom of the stool and I was able to find you online.

We were at an Arts and Wine Festival last weekend at Capitola, CA. and my daughter saw some stools that only had children's names as puzzle pieces, may I add, a little pricey for our pocketbooks. My daughter said she really likes the stool that Kadriana has from you. I am so glad that I had you make this one for her son TYLER. I thought being a little boy he would like the train. It is really cute! Just the other day, my other daughter in NC said Kadriana has so much fun trying to put the pieces in their places...she is amazing at only 8 months old. Hope to do more business in the future.

I'm so happy I found you guys on the internet! I'm 23 and my parents are moving out of their house. I found my US Map Puzzle there and was so excited! I brought it home and vowed that I would find you online so I could order some more. I'm going to school to be a teacher and can't wait to have this puzzle in my classroom one day.

I can remember using this puzzle countless times growing up, and I learned all my states and capitals with this puzzle. Thanks for the memories! I'll be placing my order soon!

I have 2 of your name puzzle stools in my house. One I got when my son was born as a baby gift and the other when my daughter was born. My son is now 15 and my daughter is 12. They still love their stools and they are still in wonderful condition. Thanks for making such a great product! I can't think of another baby gift that is so well used.

We love these puzzles and stools so much that we give them to all our friends and family for Baby gifts, Christmas gifts, and Birthday gifts. We have serveral at home for our son that we have been practicing with him. It is fun to watch him get better and better at them each time. It has also been a great way for us to teach him how to spell his name, learn his shapes and his colors. He can be rough and tough with the puzzles and they still look like new! Great product, we love them!

You guys are my standard baby gift site and my friends have always been blown away by the stools they get! I'd like to send a couple puzzle stools to my friends who just had their 2nd child. You have been a great help before, what puzzle do you recommend for a girl that offers the birthday in addition to the name?

Answer: The ballerina bear, Noah's ark, or butterfly puzzle in a pink stool.

You are a great company to work with! I first saw your puzzles at the Brookings Arts Festival before my first grandchild was born. I ordered one for her shortly after that. We now have 4 grandchildren and each one of them gets a stool puzzle with their name on it for baptism. Thank you for making it so easy to begin and maintain a tradition.

We just received our wooden two name puzzle step stool. We are absolutely enthralled with the quality and craftsmanship. It is heartwarming to find good wholesome toys made here right in our country. We got this as a gift from good friends for our two month old daughter Ava. Now that I know of you, I look forward to making purchases as we have several friends who are expecting. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

My 3 year old son loves his farm animals puzzle! He and his cousin put it together almost every day!

Its big wooden pieces are great for the kids to pick up and piece together. I also like that you put your contact info. on the back of the puzzle. I bought this one about 2 years ago at the Minnesota State Fair. I just ordered 3 more today! Thank you for your creative items. They will make great Christmas gifts!!

I just want to send off a quick "Thank You" for making my recent purchase an enjoyable one. As a business owner myself, I recognize how much it means when a client makes that extra step to give an "attaboy." I received prompt emails and return phone calls from you regarding my order and I sincerely appreciate it. Kudos to you - you're doing a great job. Oh, and the puzzle was fabulous too! Thanks so much!

I just love the puzzles and puzzle stools that you make. My grandchildren love them too! Besides being a great educational tool for learning the spelling of their name, numbers, colors and shapes, they are also very safe, sturdy, lead free and made in America. It is nice to know that I can get a great toy product made in the USA. A great gift for any occasion...births, christening, birthdays and any holiday. Just love your product. I just can't say enough . Thank you You Name It Toys!

I have been a loyal and happy customer since 2001, when my first son received a personalized picture puzzle stool as a gift when he was born. It was among my favorite and most enduring of the gifts he received. Now 7 years later, his dinosaur stool puzzle is still in sturdy use! In the intervening years, I have logged onto YouNameItToys.com for nearly every baby gift I have given. And that adds up to a lot of gifts!

I first became acquainted with You Name It Toys when we received a name puzzle for my son when he was born. He absolutely loved it and still plays with it today (he's 3 years old). Ever since, I have used You Name It Toys as my source for high quality, unique baby gifts and have ordered numerous times from their web site.

Recently friends adopted a 5 year old girl from Guatemala. I know there would be a challenge for this child to learn English and get acclimated to her new family and life in the US. I chose the "Name Worm Puzzle Stool", a perfect educational tool, as it had the numbers one through ten plus letters for the child's name.

I enthusiastically recommend purchasing from You Name It Toys. They are a great choice for quality, selection, price and reliability.

Carole


April 2008

About 13 years ago I saw you and your wonderful product at the Odeum in Villa Park, Illinois. I knew immediately it was the perfect gift for a dear friend's grandson. Shortly after ordering the gift we received a thank you note and call from the new parents. They were thrilled with this unique, functional and personalized gift. A few years later, we were thrilled to hear the puzzle stool is a treasured possession. Having mastered the puzzle and learned to spell his name, he now uses the stool as a seat and step stool.

Since that purchase, your puzzle stools have become what my husband affectionately refers to as my "standard" new baby gift. It's fun to search your web site for just the right puzzle and select the colors for the stool top and legs.

Thanks to your creativity, quality product and prompt service, gift giving is effortless and a pleasure.

I have purchased the name puzzle stools for 4 grandchildren and given them as gifts to 5 friend's grandchildren. Some comments from thank you notes I received include: "Such a great, unique gift", "We love, love, educational, out-of-the-ordinary and a much-appreciated gift, what more could you ask for.

I have gotten all of my nieces and nephews this same gift for their 1st Christmas. I did not want to change styles and 20 plus stools later they became part of the family. In fact every Christmas since my girls were little on Christmas eve they put their name puzzle stools under the tree with milk and cookies for Santa. They are now both in college, 20 and 18 years old. Santa will put their gifts by their stool for them to set on Christmas morning. It has become a great family tradition! Thanks for being part of it!
