Company history
About Coleco    
Coleco Industries, which was founded in 1932 as a leather products company, has a history that mimics a roller-coaster ride. Founded by Russian immigrant Maurice Greenberg, the shop originally sold leather supplies to shoemakers. Greenberg's son Leonard, who was fascinated by manufacturing, set up a small factory in the back of his father's shop. Here he created a leather cutting machine, which eventually led to a thriving business in leather craft kits. Since the craze with children at the time included Davy Crockett and Howdy Doody, the kits sold well. Buoyed by this success, Leonard next designed and built a plastic-forming machine, which he used to manufacture wading pools. Later made pudgy-faced little dolls known as Cabbage Patch.
