Higinbotham has been making toys for children, including tractors, trucks, and more since the 1980s.

He spoke with KDKA’s Ross Guidotti in 2019 and when asked what he thinks knowing that his work could make a child’s Christmas, he said, “I could almost cry, to be honest with you.”

This year, state police picked up 300 wooden toys for donation.
