If you haven’t already figured out, I’m a huge lover of wooden toys. However, as with all things wooden, the wood needs to come from trees and if we don’t act responsibly, our forests will be depleted and our environment will be negatively affected.
That’s why I love toy brands like goki, Plan Toys and Le Toy Van. As each of these brands treats the environment respectively. I hope over time to add to my range of brands that do this. Today, I thought I’d write a blog post about goki toys and hopefully, over the coming weeks, I’ll get to write about the other two.
goki derived its name from the two partners that set up the toy company 35 years ago. It is made up of the first two letters of each of their surnames – Gollnest and Kiesel. They are a Germany toy company that specialise in high-quality toys at fair prices and if you take a look at their huge range of toys, I think you’ll agree that they satisfy both. In total, they make over 2000 different toys, of which I only stock a small percentage. However, like any other brand of toys, if there is something specific that you want to buy and I don’t stock it, please contact me and I’ll see if I can get it into stock for you. The goki toys have a functional design and contemporary colours.
goki is the largest toy company in Northern Germany. Over the past ten years, they have planted over 300,000 trees and they have built new schools in developing countries.
Under the Company name goki, they also have some other brands that include Heimess, HOLZTIGER, ’cause and ANKER Stone. I stock some Heimess soother chains and ’cause soft balls. ‘Cause print a lovely educational tag with their products that teach that there are 250 million child labourers in the world. They build schools for children who previously had to work hard. To date, they have built schools in Vietnam, Peru, Colombia, Mali and the Philippines.
Although not very well known in Ireland, goki is a huge company in most of Europe. They employ over 600 employees worldwide and in a 2015 survey of 4,000 toy retailers, goki came first in performance and efficiency in the toy industry.
I am delighted to stock toys from such a environmental conscience company. I hope you are equally as happy to buy them! Click here to view my full range of goki toys.
