Le Toy Van
A Brief History
Le Toy Van was set up in 1995 with an intention to produce a range of high quality painted wooden toys, initially for the UK market, but later distributed all around the world.
Early designs included a castle, a doll’s house and a farm; these ranges have continued to prosper to the present day. Positive reception by retailers and the buying public alike led to the forming of a limited company and the expansion of the product range to include the huge selection of painted wooden toys that Le Toy Van produces today.
Le Toy Van are now one of the premier painted wooden toy producers in the world and are year on year continuing to grow, diversify and innovate in the field of painted wooden toys.
Le Toy Van toys are manufactured at an ICTI approved factory based in Indonesia; the UK based Le Toy Van design and management teams regularly visit to ensure the quality of the product and ethical conditions of the workforce.
All Le Toy Van painted wooden toys are designed in the UK at the Le Toy Van head office in Surrey. The highly experienced design team strive to create the innovative and colourful style that Le Toy Van toys are acclaimed for. Many of their designs have gone on to receive awards from nationally recognized bodies such as the Right Start Magazine Best Toy Awards.
Le Toy Van painted wooden toys are fully safety tested for ages 36 months and up by accredited safety testing organizations around the world. In Europe, Le Toy Van toys adhere to the stringent EN71 guidelines and are regularly tested to adhere to the EC declaration of conformity.
