The Garton Toy Factory Apartments are Sheboygan's newest luxury apartment homes. They are located in the old Garton Toy Factory Riverside plant. The Garton Toy Company, founded in Sheboygan in 1879, is remembered for the production of the pedal car along with sled, tricycles, coaster wagons, croquet sets and toy cradles. Of all the toy pedal cars produced, they are best known for the creation of the "Kidillac" and the "Hot Rod." The company's production reached a broad market throughout the country through national catalog sales and distribution centers. If you are lucky enough to find an original Garton Toy pedal car today, you have found a piece of history.
During the 1960s, Garton Toy Company introduced several new toy products including the Casy Jones Locomotive, Air Force Jeeps, Tin Lizzies, Spin-A-Roos, a surrey, a camper and sedans to the toy market. To become more efficient and to modernize they decided to build a new plant and relocate four miles north of Sheboygan.
From the end of the pedal car productions until our renovation to luxury apartments, the Garton Toy Factory Riverside plant was utilized as both warehouse and office space by various local businesses. In 1987, Verifine Dairy purchased the facilities for additional storage. In 1999, Gorman & Company began the renovation project.
