Fanny & Alexander

"Childhood is a brief and extraordinary time — a time when everything is possible and the imagination is boundless. Fanny & Alexander is dedicated to creating and cultivating moments of joy during childhood that will last a lifetime.


We make toys that call to children's creativity and curiosity, and encourage them to marvel at the world around them — whilst inventing a few worlds of their own, too. Our toys are deceptively simple, but meticulously made, so that they might become a beloved part of your child's life, and endure to be enjoyed by future generations, too.

There is an art to playing well; one which we take seriously. We hope our toys will become beloved companions and cherished objects that preserve that sense of childhood wonder for your family."
