Beck Wooden Toys was founded by Christof Beck in 1946. Due to not being able to find a job in his normal occupation as a mechanic after the war, he started creating and selling children’s toys. Christof invented and created many traditional toys, eg wooden doll’s houses, grocery stores as well as wooden car parks and traffic signs to support children in their world of play. 

While this family run business is now its 3rd generation, the philosophy and ethics that Christof Beck set in place when he started his business haven’t changed. Beck Wooden Toys still focuses on long-lasting, high quality children’s toys that foster imagination and creativity and are sustainably made and safe for children of all ages. 

Beck Wooden Toys predominantly uses native timber from beech, maple and oak trees grown near their workshop in the Swabian Alps in Germany. All varnishes, stains, paints and finishes are lightfast, non-toxic as well as water- and saliva-resistant and are in accordance with European safety standards DIN EN 71, making all of Beck’s wooden toys safe to be played with.

More than 90% of Beck’s wooden toys have been awarded the prestigious “spiel gut” award showing the high quality, craftsmanship and sophistication of their large range of children’s toys.

Kaden Marble Runs

KADEN is founded by Gerd Kaden who's passion for both toys and wooden design has given him the opportunity to produce his own very specialised wooden building blocks for children with built-in ball tracks. This gives the child the option to not only build towers but also amazing ball runs. Each individually shaped building block is designed to connect with every other block to allow a ball to run through, turn a corner, spin around or even drop down a level. This feature not only opens up the possibilities for play but also gives the child a chance to learn about engineering and maths, problem solving and creativity, cooperation and perseverance, spatial awareness, hand eye coordination and so much more. It is open ended toys in it's best form as a different ball run can be created with a simple rearranging of the wooden blocks.

The KADEN Marble Runs are available in three sizes S, M and XL. Ball tracks of the respective size are compatible with each other. The KADEN Marble Runs in M and XL are suitable for infants under 3 years due to the large size of the wooden balls. Made in Germany from steam treated beech wood - a process that increases stability and durability.

KADEN Marble Runs impress with their variety of available components as well as with their larger sizes available and their one of a kind specifically designed pieces. This is the reason why they have been awarded many prizes for design and play value.

Kontu STEM Blocks 

Kontu STEM Blocks are magnetic wooden blocks and rigid cards designed to encourage STEM thinking (science, technology, engineering, and math) in early childhood. Preschool-aged children have an innate ability and desire to learn math. By cementing positive early math knowledge in their minds by age five, children build a positive disposition towards mathematics that will help them attain their full academic potential later in life. Children learn through play!

Mader Kreiselmanufaktur was founded in 1991 by Klaus Mader, a very skilled carpenter with a love for handcrafted wooden toys. He has a small but mighty workshop found in the foothills of the Austrian Alps which hand makes not only traditional spinning tops but also skipping ropes, kaleidoscopes and yo-yos. Each spinning top is painstakingly made by hand, often by Klaus himself, out of locally sourced wood with some tops requiring up to 20 different stages such as wood turning, burning, embossing, carving, brushing, painting and varnishing. One can’t help but admire the attention to detail in every creation.

His toys are easily recognised as they all have a burned in stripe in the middle, beautifully chosen colours and unparalleled attention to detail. You can’t help but pick one up and give it a twirl then watch mesmerised as it spins and falls.
