In the early 20th century, teacher Lucille King founded the company that became Playskool to promote the production and use of simply designed, well-made wooden toys for classroom use. The company relocated to Chicago and grew over the years by acquiring other wooden toy companies such as John L. Wright Co. (Lincoln Logs), Holgate, and Halsam. In 1968, Playskool became a part of Milton-Bradley, and when the parent company was acquired by Hasbro in 1984, so too was Playskool.
