Morgan stumbled upon the idea for the wooden cars while looking for a Christmas gift for his mother 20 years ago.

He noticed a booth that was selling wooden toys, and the idea just clicked.

“It was a magical thing for me,” Morgan said. “I believe the man upstairs pulled at my heart and inspired me to design my own and build them.”

Morgan expects this year to distribute several hundred cars.

“We build them simple and strong to where they last a long time,” he said. “My dream is that one of these kids will be inspired the way I was and keep this tradition going on.”
