The first wooden toys, which currently are an inspiration for us, were created in the workshop of our grandfather.
The story begins a few years after the war, during the times when there was a
shortage of literally everything. However, there was no shortage of dreams to create and cause a smile on the faces of children. The production of toys was carried out “by the way”, because first of all our grandfather had to provide for his family, which was quite large.
Our dad very fondly recalls the first toys that he got from his grandfather. And yes, despite the passage of years, the wooden toys are still associated with the magic of childhood. Childhood that smells like homey apple pie, away from computers and smartphones, but close to family and friends.
Not only toys, but also furniture, floors and stairs were created in our grandfather’s workshop with the use of traditional methods. LUPO relies on modern methods of wood processing, which put emphasis on precision. However, the human factor is crucial here, because it’s a person and not a machine that watches over the safety and good appearance of each product at the final stage of production.
Each, even the smallest part of the toy is created from A to Z by us.
Childhood is a period in which a child is supposed to acquire as many skills necessary in the adult life as possible. Toys that move by themselves, make various sounds and show ready solutions make the child only a passive viewer. They prevent the child from shaping the surrounding reality.
Wooden toys are different. A child may decide on its own, what kind of building will be created from a wood that is pleasant to touch. It may organize a race of cars, which will be set in motion by the child itself. This is the right way to learn how the world works, while developing imagination.
We want to spread the passion for wooden toys not only in Poland, but also abroad. We understand that we have a big responsibility due to that fact. Therefore, “Made in Poland” inscription obliges us to put even greater emphasis on uncompromising quality at every stage of production.
Cooperation with LUPO TOYS is pure pleasure! From the design, the details, the adjustment to the product and delivery.
We made the first purchase fairly timidly, thinking that it's another wooden toy which is quite a lot on the market. After unpacking the first delivery, as soon as we picked up the toys, we knew right away that Lupo Toys is a company with which we bind our future. Everything is made with due accuracy, attention to everyone, even the smallest detail. The colors are expressive, but not tiring eyes of a child and the variety of textures stimulates the touch perception of a small person. What else can I say ... except that the truck with blocks is the only toy that took my two-year-old for almost an hour. I recommend with a clean heart 🙂
