“We believe there is definitely enough plastic in this world and there is no need to add more.” The Spanish brand of Lubulona is one to fall in love with. Although not specifically mentioned on their website, the Waldorff- and Montessorimethods play important roles here as well. In fact, Tina and Jordi take it one step further and believe that stereotypical toys – so construction for boys and dolls for girls – should not exist. “At Lubulona we prefer to give children a choice”, they say. With which we at Toy-Stores totally agree.
Ocamora is a small toy factory in Cordoba, a little town in the southern of Spain. Laura and Grego started their brand two years ago. They design and make everything themselves. Laura has immersed herself in the Waldorf and Montessori teaching methods: children have to develop their skills in their own way and in their own pace. Grego is a great wood worker. Together with a handful of employees, they saw, sand, press, rotate and dye their products.
