OUR ASHFORD STORY
READ OUR STORY
Everyone has a Grandfather, mine was the handyman type, big hands, bright blue eyes that sparkled and a permanent smile. Visiting in the school holidays was always a treat. I was allowed to watch Grandpa tinker in his back shed, the saw dust smelt so delicious. Grandpa would make me these beautiful wooden eggs from special pieces of timber he collected all over New Zealand.
My Grandfather was Walter Ashford and when he wasn't making wooden eggs for me he was busy making wooden Ashford products for you. Walter Ashford started back in 1934 making kit set Ashford Toys & Wheels for sale in the Home Journal, I guess with his Ashford Wheels still turning 80 years on, he must have got the design right!...
