ELOU CORK TOYS
100% natural, educational & sustainable toys made of cork for happy kids.
Founded in São João de Ver, Aveiro in 2016 Elou Cork Toys is a Portuguese brand dedicated to the design and conception of natural toys for children. Risen from the will to develop a 100% natural offer, whose practices are in line with an overall environmentally and socially responsible posture, Elou proposes an innovative approach to the extended usage of what is considered one of Portugal’s most valuable natural resources: cork.
From the Montado to the factory, the process encompasses various stages which ally traditional techniques with cutting edge technologies, resulting in toys that deliver the maximum original experience to the educational act of playing.
Elou Cork Toys presents itself as an innovative brand that, although new to the market, intends to revolutionize the way children interact with their toys, enhancing cork’s benefits to children’s knowledge acquisition and motor, cognitive and sensorial stimulation. In order to do so, it offers a wide range of natural toys of minimalist conception, whose central premise lies in the idea that playing is not only a leisure activity, but also a significant part of the child’s personal development that comes naturally throughout her growth and whereby she acquires multiple skills and competences while framing her personality and building an emotional identity.
