Discover the Toy Van
Founded in 1995, Le Toy Van Limited is a small family business with a big heart. It specializes in luxury children's toys, based in Surrey, England.
It was while trying to help his neighbors model a construction of their house that Georges Le Van, a Norman living in London, made the realization that at that time there were few affordable dollhouses. So he began handcrafting his first wooden dollhouse in his garden shed and soon after, Le Toy Van was born.
All of their toys are designed in-house in the UK and ethically produced in Indonesia.
At Le Toy Van, fun is taken seriously and, as they like to say, they seriously have fun doing it! They are big kids at heart. All toys are developed by in-house creatives with a large dose of French flair provided by the Le Van family.
The company loves the idea that children have small hands but big imaginations.
