Fagus was founded in 1969, but it wasn't until 1981 that they started producing wooden toys.

The products of this toy brand are in Germany made in a sheltered workshop by people with an occupational disability.

The production process revolves around sustainability, quality and safety. The products are made to be passed down through generations.

The great thing about these toys is that many parts actually work mechanically. Consider, for example, the crane; which can steer, lift, hoist, turn and extend.

The vehicles are designed in such a way that children can easily pick them up and then experience them with all their senses: feel, turn, drive, slide, etc.

Here you can see how big they are:

The toys contribute to the development of gross and fine motor skills and fantasy play.

The surfaces of the toys are treated with transparent lacquer that protects the wood but at the same time ensures that the structure remains visible. This allows children to experience the characteristics of the material.

The Fagus story is also one about trees, which gives the brand its name.

European beech (Fagus) is a genus of deciduous trees in the family Fagaceae, native to Europe, Asia and North America.
