History of Playskool

In 1928, the idea of “learning through play” was the inspiration of two women who worked for the Schroeder Lumber Company in Milwaukee. Former teachers, they based the very first Playskool designs on educational tools they had used in their classrooms, starting it all off with folding wooden desk filled with fun learning supplies like blocks, crayons and clay.
