You know what they say: All werk and no spiel makes Hans a dull boy. Which is why the owners of Spielwerk take the business of play seriously. Stacee Wion and Sonja Barclay opened after sensing a need for quality toys crafted from natural materials—not to mention the heartwarming feeling that accompanies classic playthings. Suspicious that toys produced in the 21st century with 19th-century technology will cost 25th-century dollars? A lot of their prices are under $20. And the memories generated by perennial playthings like a canvas-sailed wooden boat? Priceless.
