KOTOK Playthings are wooden toys, created with love and inspiration.
We are a graphic designers duo from Saint-Petersburg, where we design our toys and then entrust the realization of our ideas to the artel of craftsmen from the Nizhny Novgorod region. There the toy-craftsmen industry has been well-known since the XIXth century and has become a tradition.
Within the project we are also wondering about how traditional cultural phenomena are affecting modern decorative arts.
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.
Thank you for choosing us!
