About us

The core values of our brand fagus®

fagus® is committed to providing meaningful jobs for people with special needs who, through handiwork, are made to feel they are an important part of the community, allowing them to develop individually. Their work results in high quality toys that in both form and function are designed with the child's needs as the focal point. This is how fagus® creates multiple benefits for their employees, for parents and children, and for society as a whole.

Values that give character to our brand

Bringing children together through play
For many years, the fagus® brand has stood for ideas of play that offer children a genuine and important alternative to electronic and digital games. Made of wood, they bring a special form of variety into play and give children the space they need to form their own play worlds - creative and always completely new. With the toys from fagus® children can let their imaginations run free while playing together, and can discover through play the world that surrounds them.

Genuine togetherness
fagus® toys are created in an atmosphere of real togetherness for children to play with each other. In the fagus® workshops, each employee finds a place where he can contribute his own individual strengths and abilities. Weaknesses become less important, and this way of working together creates a true community in which high quality toys are produced. The cordial and cooperative interaction between our employees is reflected in the products, which in turn is felt by the customers.

Toys for generations
fagus® toys are not fast-paced, disposable products, but are made to be passed on for generations in a family, ensuring children's enjoyment over many years of play. This makes them part of many family traditions and especially valuable. For fagus®, producing durable toys is an expression of appreciation for the child and the environment. It also differentiates the Fagus brand from the manufacturers of cheaper toys.

Living responsibility
Giving people support on their way to a self-determined life and offering them diverse educational and employment opportunities are important components in the philosophy of the fagus® workshops. Every day, the term "responsibility" is brought to life. Individual encouragement and in- dividual challenges are part of this responsibility. This creates the goal of allowing each person to develop in the best way possible. At the same time, customers are given the opportunity to consume responsibly and consciously – thus creating positive effects that can impact everyone involved in the process.

Creative & inspirational
The vehicles from fagus® invite children to get creative. Each vehicle provides many opportunities for children's play to develop freely, thus opening the doors of the child's imagination to new worlds of play. All fagus® vehicles are made for children to enjoy and experience with all their senses. As such, they support healthy growth and promote the development of children in their daily play.

Natural wood
Our material –wood– presents a positive effect on employees, parents and children at the same time. Whoever has fagus® had vehicles in their hands knows what this means. Grown over decades and shaped by nature, wood has everything it needs to make really good toys. That's why fagus® does not need any metal parts: the various parts of the vehicles are connected by interlocking, doweling and gluing. The surfaces are treated with a transparent varnish that protects the wood while keeping its structure visible, so that children can experience it with all its history and characteristics. Thus, the fagus® story of is also a story of trees, which gives the brand its name.

Thinking sustainably
When parents think about their children, they feel a desire to protect them and give them a sense of safety and securi- ty. Carefully selected, good toys that are free of pollutants and are sustainably produced play an increasingly important role in our lives. The fagus® toys in particular fulfill this need. Made from the natural material of wood, they are manufactured in cooperation with professionals and people in need of support. As such, they provide real added value, which is also noticeable in the toys themselves. The respect for people and the environment gives the toys a very special character, and enables children to play in a safe and healthy manner while appealing to all their senses.

Made in Borken
By offering meaningful work in its workshops in Borken, fagus® offers all employees the opportunity to play a valuable part in the production of our toys. From the very first idea through to the finished toy, the production of the vehicles is marked by great craftsmanship and partnership with each other. Working side by side, high-quality vehicles are created, receiving at the same time all the qualities that make them particularly valuable for parents, children and employees.
