What is Toy Stores?
Toy-stores is a webshop, built on the idea of offering sustainable, educational and, equally important, beautiful wooden toys. These toys are designed and manufactured in different countries across Europe for children from all over the world. We are looking for brands that are not only focused on profit, but also on the perception of the toy and the many possibilities with wood.
How is this store originated?
This webshop was created after being inspired by a visit to the brand Ocamora. This brand originated in Spain. I (Nick, founder) met Laura and Grego from Ocamora on November 22, 2017. Through a work-for-stay platform, I found Laura and Grego. In exchange for work, the host offers you a place to sleep and food. I was able to help them for two weeks in their small factory. At that time, they were growing and already quite busy. Laura and Grego are incredibly friendly and make wooden toys with a lot of love. This is what sparked something inside of me. After a few days of helping in their factory in Cordoba, I fell in love with their toys. That is why I decided to bring their brand to the Netherlands.
The way they invent the toy, the love with which they make it, the way they take care of their customers and the awareness they have about where their product ends up, namely with children playing, is extremely important to them. That really appeals to me.
After these two weeks, I went back twice. As a friend and as a partner. The first pallet of toys finally arrived in the Netherlands in November 2018, just in time for Christmas.
