Art & Nature embodied in a toy
Lanco Toys is a family business founded in 1952 in Barcelona as the first European brand of natural rubber toys. Our founder Alfredo Benet, was an artist captivated by the creative possibilities and artisanal character of natural rubber. He found its softness and elasticity magical and loved the fact that it had a natural life: it leaves no footprint in the planet for future generations.
Artisans for a slow living
Natural rubber is our teacher and inspiration: its properties require a handmade approach, a respect towards the timings of nature and an understanding of imperfection as uniqueness. Each toy is unique and unrepeatable, as we humans are.
Natural rubber: a better world
Lanco toys are exclusively made of pure natural rubber. This natural material comes from Hevea trees. We love natural rubber for being an alternative to plastic: Lanco Toys have a life, as everything created by nature.
Toys with a life
the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance. More since our origins: how could we offer toys that would compromise our babies future? Artisans and Nature are our creators; we respect and take care of them.
