KOTOK Playthings are wooden toys, created with love and inspiration
The toys that are created by a graphic designer and produced the traditional way by an artel of craftsmen from the Nizhny Novgorod region, Russia: there the toy-craftsmen industry has been well-known since the XIXth century and has become a tradition. The wooden figurines are turned on a lathe and then painted by an artist's hand.
To work with talented craftsmen and support their distinct job, especially during current times of a global overproduction is a great joy for us.
Our goal is to create high-quality toys with a history that people of all ages will treasure and love.
