McLoughlin Bros. games

Known early on for "revamping" popular European juvenile game, Mcloughlin also created such staples as "Pilgrims Progress", "Fish Pond", "Peter Coddle", and "Jack Straws". Lithograph paper-on-wood construction toys included the Palmer Cox Brownie series, also alphabet blocks and numerous educational toys.

McLoughlin Bros., Inc. was a New York publishing firm active between 1858 and 1920. Scottish immigrant John McLoughlin founded a small print shop in 1828 in Brooklyn, New York. After a few decades in business, the company became popular lithographic printers of children's books and toys. Par for the era, the company integrated religious topics into their products in an attempt to teach children proper behavior and religious beliefs. The company was a pioneer in color printing technologies in children's books. The company specialized in retellings or bowdlerizations of classic stories for children.

The artistic and commercial roots of the McLoughlin firm were first developed by John McLoughlin, Jr. who made his younger brother Edmund McLoughlin a partner in 1855. By 1886, the firm published a wide range of items including cheap chapbooks, large folio picture books, linen books, puzzles, games and paper dolls. Many of the earliest and most valuable board games in America were produced by McLoughlin Brothers of New York. In 1920 the corporation was sold to Milton Bradley & Company. McLoughlin ceased game production at this time, but continued publishing their picture books.
