The History of Kolcraft
Chicago 1946 is a very important time in the history of Kolcraft for this is all where it began. The founder, Leo Koltun made playpen pads from oilcloth and cotton batting for babies at the end of the Second World War. With a surplus of padding, the all-around crib was produced and with his knack for inventing products for the safety and comfort of babies, the company expanded to making other baby products like strollers.
