We are toymaker Ikonic Toys. We love beautiful objects that are well designed, inspirational and surprising. We believe in creativity, and that everyone possesses creativity, and that is something that we want to encourage. We don't deny that we're ambitious.
'"If you want creative people, give them time to play" (John Cleese)
We want to make the world of toys more attractive; toys that can do more than what they were originally designed to do. Toys that can be played with in ways we never imagined. Because our children are the most creative and imaginative people we know, and that is something we want to encourage and try to retain for the future.
For our first collection, we took our inspiration from the familiar wooden railway track. The design is now over 50 years old, is brilliant and is still extremely popular. Is there anyone who hasn't played with it? This wooden toy is exceptionally strong, both as a design and as a toy, and we find that inspirational. That's why we designed the wooden race track, and the racing car transporter.
Lately we have added a beautiful productline with artwork of Fiep Westendorp. Here illustrations are still amazingly popular, and we have designed 2 wooden puzzles and a wooden tow truck with her work.
Consumers can order online, or check this page with an overview of toy shops that sell Ikonic Toys. If you want to buy wooden toys for your toy store or giftshop, contact us, or contact one of our distributors.
Which of the products around us today will still be around in 20 years' time, or 40 years' time? Look around you, it won't be many. We are seizing the opportunity to make toys that will be passed on from generation to generation. How fascinating is that? To design something that will still be played with in 40 years' time!
It's freakin' mind-blowing!
