Established in 1993 by Wojciech Bajor, an architect and scenic designer started BAJO toys as a local family business. Now is an innovative company built on the primary element of the sustainable resources and development. Our factory is located at the foot of the Polish Carpathian Mountains, enviroment which inspires us to maintain our sustainable solutions. We strongly believe we must always take into consideration any consequences that our actions may have during the toy creation. It applies to all our work, from the birth of our concepts and toy design, ending with the company’s waste policy. The toys we design are a result of our passion and love for their uniqueness and quality. This gift comes from the heart of BAJO. The toys reflect the essence of childhood. Every single toy is individually made with great care, precision in every detail. Each of these unique items has its own story which is the result of long hours of designing and customizing for children and parent’s specific needs. We give importance to the aesthetics of toys, inspired by a classical trilogy Truth, beauty and goodness. We try to create beautiful objects, valuable not only for their utilitarian character. BAJO toys are created with reference to pedagogical aids used for educational and physical development that are often used in kindergartens. In the same light, BAJO have participated in many educational and developmental projects, which encourage positive social changes and increase the environmental consciousness. Children make the BAJO toy their own by creating their own rules and ways of playing because they are created to trigger their imagination. We make an effort to design multi-functional toys, which at the same time trains child’s intelligence, dexterity and their awareness. Our toys are focused on sustainable development of the various types of the imagination: colouristic, spatial, motor, symbolic and creative. They learn to think analytically or abstractly. We use the variety of deciduous trees of original graining, we expose its natural colour and we allow it to darken and stain. We always try to preserve at least one, even if it is only a very small part, to be completely natural. The natural element gives a child the chance to feel the natural warmth of wood. In 2013 BAJO launched a new design collective, and called it “TOBE”. This project brings to market creatively designed toys from multiple designers. At about the same time BAJO designed and produced under license a toy collection based on the award-winning children’s book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler : The Gruffalo. Our toys correspond to all EU and US standards and requirements for toys safety (Directive 2009/48/EC and REACH regulations) in terms of materials, manufacture and labelling. We use only the safest certified non-toxic paints based on natural components, which fulfil EU safety standard (EN71) and US norms. We support our community by using only carefully selected high quality materials from certified local suppliers, who respect European eco-standards of the wood production. Each product is hand-checked to ensure quality of the completed item. All of Bajo products are manufactured in Poland.
