PADiLLY is an online toy store carrying many European brands like Holztiger, Kathe Kruse, Ravensburger and HABA. We started in 2003 with brands we knew from living and shopping in Germany. No German toy store would be complete without Anchor Stone Building Blocks. Our selection quickly grew to include Plan Toys, Crocodile Creek and Folkmanis. Last year we brought the Washington State needle felting company, Woolpets, on board.
Holztiger was our first manufacturer. Holztiger was a small Bavarian company creating hand-painted wooden figures. With their whimsical faces, exposed wood grain and deep colors, Holztiger animals quickly became a favorite. Holztiger has grown over the years and remains committed to their high quality and high safety standards “Made in Europe” toys.
Many know Kathe Kruse as an extraordinary doll manufacturer, but did you know they also have a baby line? Kathe Kruse started over 100 years ago, making them one of the oldest doll company in the world. They invented the Waldorf doll, a doll hand made of natural materials with simple facial expressions and are the exclusive licensed manufacturer of textile Waldorf toys by the Bund der Freien Waldorfschulen eV. Kathe Kruse is made in Europe. Their products are developed in Donauwörth, Germany and 90% are produced in their own production sites in Europe. Kathe Kruse dolls and toys support a feeling of warmth, safety, love and trust.
Over the last 130 years, the Ravensburger blue triangle has become a respected trademark representing superior quality puzzles and games. Ravensburger – a tradition of quality since 1883. Ravensburger is still a family owned company.
HABA toys decorate baby’s nursery, encourage those first steps, tempt toddlers with engaging toys and puzzles and entertain through adulthood with creative games, building blocks and marble runs. Not to be overlooked, HABA covers kitchen and market play with their wooden and cloth play food. True companions from the very beginning, HABA Dolls with their cheerful faces and bright clothing have soft, cloth bodies, perfect for snuggling. HABA has been delighting kids for over 70 years.
The first Anchor Stone Building Block Sets were brought to world fame in 1880. Some of the original sets have already found their way into museums. Anchor Stone Blocks are all natural, being composed of a mixture of sand quartz, chalk and linseed oil. They look and feel like real stone. No glue required, Anchor Stones sets can be built and rebuilt. The only limit is the imagination.
