Stilts have long been popular toys for children - and are still as popular as ever! Stilts bring back memories from an older, simpler time, the "Olden Days."
Before the age of cheap plastic toys, children would make their own fun using ingenuity and imagination. This fun ranged from simple games like "kick the can" all the way to building their own wooden toys, toys such as go-carts, scooters, bows and arrows, and...Stilts!
Most, if not every one of you visiting this stilts site, have very warm stilts memories of your own.
Frog Legs Stilts - Just Like The Old Days
Since 1997 Frog Legs has been handcrafting traditional wooden stilts, and offering them through the Internet.
Frog Legs Stilts is not a sterile factory, with an endless assembly line, unfeelingly
stamping out thousands of indistinguishable, perfectly-milled clones. All of our stilts are carefully handmade, giving these wooden toys a personality of their own. Our wooden stilts are solidly-constructed, using quality materials and a rugged, made-to-last design.
Working in his small shop, nestled among the firs, cedars, ash, and alders of rural Western Washington State, stiltsmaker Randy Warnock crafts each pair of Frog Legs stilts personally. Because each pair is individually crafted, Frog Legs can offer such a variety of different models and different kinds of wood. However, only a limited number of these authentic wooden toys are made each year. Frog Legs Stilts are not available in any store.
