FAYETTE COUNTY, PA — A 93-year-old toymaker gave new meaning to the “spirit of giving” when he donated 300 wooden play trucks to be given to local Pennsylvania kids for Christmas.
Ed Higinbotham made 300 wooden trucks in his home workshop in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, according to KDKA.
“93 year old toy maker at it again!” Troop B shared alongside a photo of a trooper and the woodworker holding one of his creations.
“It’s just something that I enjoy doing, and now I make somebody else happy, and if that’s Santa Claus, then I’m Santa Claus,” Higinbotham told WTAE.

“We know he makes these handmade,” state trooper Robert Broadwater told KDKA. “If you look at the bottom of the toy here, he dates them with his initials.”
