Acorn stocks more educational and community-minded toys than you can shake an artisan-made rattle at. Mack play tents in bright colors replace the old-fashioned pillow-and-blanket fort, and a wooden animal menagerie has all the variety of Noah’s Ark without the pesky religious literalism. Playthings don’t come cheap, but not a single toy sold by Acorn has been recalled in more than three years.
