Gollnest and Kiesel is Europe's most innovative wooden toy manufacturer and the largest toy company in northern Germany.

Many of the toys produced are made by hand.
Sustainability is a term taken from forestry. Only so much can be taken from a forest as is replanted. Every year we gift a tree to every newborn child in our ferderal state. 25,000 trees every year for a new forest , 350, 000 trees in total.
Products made bear the 'Fairtrade' seal. By purchasing Fairtrade products every person has the opportunity to make our world a little fairer.
A general rule applies for all toys from Gollnest and Kiesel that children must not be injured by the toys or suffer any serious health consequences. The quality assurance team makes sure that this remains the case. In the in- house laboratory and through external inspection, all toys are regularly subjected to extensive testing. All dyes used are water based and are completely child safe.
goki nature: 100 percent naturalness
The goki nature series stands for extremely high quality and natural woods. Its pleasant feel conveys a sense of warmth, security and absolute naturalness.
The series deliberately dispenses with dyes and colours. The functionally aesthetic design of the natural toys is also intended to foster children's creativity and imagination.
