Why do you create activity toys for kids and adults?
We are play children and enjoy playing with our creations ourselves. We are even happier that the little ones are having fun too. In times of sedentary behavior in all age groups, we want to promote physical exercise in a playful way – in a natural way.
What is special about your toy collection?
All our products make you move! The prinicples are very simpe and due to this you can use our toys in many different ways and very creatively.
When and where was TicToys – die neue Spielzeugkultur founded?
2010 in our shared students appartment in Chemnitz.
Where do you produce your eco active toys?
Every component of our games (including the packaging) is manufactured regionally in Germany. Most of the components come from North Rhine-Westphalia, Bavaria and the Leipzig area. The Diakonie Leipzig supports us in the assembly work. Most of the handicraft work is done in our own factory in Leipzig.
What do you do when you ARE NOT working?
Good mix of sports and hammock.
