Those are the ones I saw! Thank you so much!!! It's SIKU. They looked super nice...and are of course cheaper online than at FAO in Manhattan (but what isn't LOL).

Pearler Beads are made in USA. This is the gift I buy in bulk to give as birthday gifts to my boys classmates, so I was happy to notice this after the Aquadots recall (Pearler Beads are similar in concept, except you iron them together instead of spraying them with water so I assume the chemical makeup differs).

all our matchbox cars are like $1 a piece though. He has a ton and loves them. I never set out to get him a million but he was given some and then they kind of became an inexpensive treat for him at the store or something. : I have been buying the wooden plan toy cars- they're great but pricier. Standard American here! Too many toys and I am used to them cheap. :

Anyway I thought pvc was just in plastic? I liked the matchbox cuz they were metal. I guess I should google that and check out the brand you mention.

Does anyone know of a wooden alphabet puzzle not MIC? Lots of M&D out there, but that's not what I want!

I think Ravensburger has letter puzzles. They are more of a heavy cardboard, but they are well made, not flimsy.

This Ravensburger site also has SIKU products:
