President Obama visits Tinkertoys today.

Posted by scapozzola on 11/30/2012

President Obama traveled to Montgomery County, Pennsylvania today to visit the Rodon Group manufacturing facility in Hatfield, PA.

Rodon Group is the sole U.S. manufacturer for K'NEX Brands, a toy company whose products include the iconic Tinkertoy as well as K'NEX, Nintendo, and Angry Birds Building Sets.

In the past few years, Rodon has been in the vanguard of the "insourcing" movement, bringing back 95% of its packaging and production from China to Pennsylvania.

During his factory tour, the president said of Rodon's Knex operation:

They manufacture almost 3,000 K’NEX pieces every minute.  And every box that ends up on store shelves in 30 countries is stamped “Made in America.”  And that’s something to be proud of. That’s something to be proud of.

Tinkertoys not made in USA

I think this post is misleading. Although Rodon does make KNEX pieces in USA, I do NOT think Tinkertoy brand toys are made in USA.
