So many of our toys have received the Japanese "Good Toy Award"! Wonder which toy would be best for you? What about one of our "Good Toy Award" winners?
Each year a limited number of toys selected from around the world receive this Japanese "Good Toy Award". To date 350 toys have been selected for this award, 20 of these toys were designed and produced by Ginga Kobo Toys. For over 30 years this certified NPO Japanese"Good Toy Award" Committee has selected toys which are pedagogically creative,inspiring,and most important of all, fun and challenging to mind and spirit. The institution of the "Good Toy Award" has reinforced the idea of a toy culture, of a fun-loving, play culture. So many toys have hit the market and so many of them go unnoticed. Toys which are incredibly unique and inspiring often slip away before children have a chance to play with them. The Japanese "Good Toy Award" gives these obscure but wonderful creative toys a chance to thrive and prosper. It is an objective acknowledgement of expertise in toy design and creativity. The "Good Toy Award" has encouraged the proliferation of a pedagogically sophisticated and fun-inspiring toy.

So much is involved in the creation of a toy. From beginning to end lots of energy and inspiration goes into each stage of production. The wood, paint, craftsmanship, and design are of primary importance. Every point is carefully monitored. Daily problems are overcome, toys take precedence. Each and everyday creating toys is our mission. Our dream is to create toys which will support a mountain of laughter and joy.
