Moulin Roty is a brand rich in history and just as their toys have many stories to tell, so do the people behind the designs. In 1972 in France a group of friends decided to renovate an old mill and live together as a commune. The group were looking for a common project to work on and started producing screenprints and crafts such as jewellery and decorative items.
In 1975 the friends designed a small car made from wood, foam and fabric and when they received orders for over 1500 of the cars, it propelled them into the nursery and toy market. They decide to launch an entire collection.
In 1988 a devastating fire ripped through the warehouse, destroying everything including their designs, stock, files and machines. The friends agree to use this as a fresh start and move their headquarters to Nort sur Erdre to start from scratch.
In the early 2000s, the brand went international, opening its first subsidiary in Great Britain.
The brand’s philosophy
‘Yesterday’s toys for today’s children’. Moulin Roty believes in creating the highest quality toys with the most intricate details.
The story behind the designs
Every new collection that is produced begins with a story, a universe, an adventure. Once this story is conceptualised the illustrators, designers and seamstresses all work closely together to turn the ‘Once upon a time’ into the most beautiful and unique pieces.
Moulin Roty today
Today, the brand exists all over the world and each year over 1.5 million treasures leave the country to travel across the seas as far as Japan, America and of course, Australia. They are known for their generosity and quite often donate margins of their profit to different charities such as wildlife conservation.
