Janod

Janod Wooden Toys, France’s leading wooden toy company.

In 1970, Louis Janod founded the company Janod Toys in Orgelet. With his associate Serge Salvi, he developed the business and focused on the design and sale of traditional toys (spinning tops, yo-yos, skittles, etc.).

From 2004, Pascal Bernard, CEO, set up a full-scale design department. Each year, in-house designers together with a team of computer graphics artists and product managers design 150 new wooden and cardboard games and toys.

Traditional games and toys with a contemporary design!

Developing creativity to craft timeless toys, valuing contemporary design with a graphic edge, inventing new features, these are all challenges Janod takes on when creating its new collections.

Janod’s playful, sturdy and joyous creations forge unique connections between children and their toys… as well as between the brand and its consumers. The not so easily defined soulful component drives their designers and the «French Touch» disregards borders and has enabled them to hold a special place in toy chests around the world!
