In the world of Eli & Mattie, helping with chores becomes a time for laughter and
stories. Each piece in our collection is handmade by a local Amish craftsman. It’s more than a
toy: it’s a window into a way of life, where the things that last are the things that matter.
"Eli," Mamm prodded gently. "It's time to get up.
Breakfast is almost ready and Datt's just coming
in from the barn." 5-year-old Eli snuggled farther
under the warm quilt, but soon the aromas
of frying bacon and Mamm's cornmeal mush
reached his nose, and he swung his feet
onto the floor. It was a new day.
Mattie, Eli's 7-year old sister, was already in the
kitchen helping Mamm set the table. Datt wiped
his feet as he came in the back door, dusty and
hungry from the early morning chores.
"Good morning, young ones," he said with
a twinkle in his eye, "it's stock traler day."
