“The Toymaker Workshop anchors our annual Independence Day celebration with an innovative and hands on project. While children are having fun in creating a toy, they are also learning about math, science, and construction. I would highly recommend him for your event.” -Kris Johnson, President and CEO, Tri-Cities Area Chamber of Commerce

“WIN,WIN,WIN! That’s what we got when we contracted with the Toy Workshop. Rick was very professional, organized and creative which made it a dream to work with him. The sponsors and their employees loved presenting the activity, the families attending loved the activity — What more could you ask for??” –Robin H. Kelley, Director of Festivals Issaquah Salmon Days Festival

“Rick’s toy making activities are hugely popular with both kids and their parents… His area is the first one the children target coming through the gates and the last one for them to be pulled away from at the day’s end. If you are serious about providing a fun-filled, educational and interactive experience for young people – you can’t do better than Rick Hartman.” -Chris Clarke Vice President Customer & Corporate Communications, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi

“I was amazed at the number of kids that participated and the positive comments I received. I was so pleased with the results that I hope to make the Toymaker’s Workshop a regular venue at our event.” -Holly Kaiser, Windemere River of Fire Festival, Kennewick, WA

“For the second year in a row, you mesmerized an entire roomful of children and parents! We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about your program. It was a pleasure working with you, and I sincerely hope we get to do it again.” -Shannon Wallingford, Event Coordinator, Washington Athletic Club

“Rick was a tremendous hit with clients at our Family Art & Ingenuity Day. His unique workshop offered a wonderful opportunity to be creative and inventive, and both adults and kids were thoroughly engaged.” -Patty Bogie, Reader’s Digest Association
