Toynamics adds Korko to its brand portfolio

by | Aug 10, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Toynamics UK & Ireland signs as exclusive UK distributor for Korko, a range of playful educational toys made from sustainable Portuguese cork.  

At launch in the UK, there will be a range of Korko Block Sets, offering a choice of building block pack sizes.  For the future, the range will be expanded to offer a wider collection of fun products, each with an exciting story to tell from the cork forest.

The toys give little ones from 18mths the opportunity to explore sustainable products, and stimulate their creativity and early development skills.  For example, the cork building bricks, in fun colours and shapes, encourage spatial thinking and fine motor skills.

Cork benefits from being a soft, light, non-slip, durable material, that’s antibacterial.  As well as being sustainable, cork is biodegradable, recyclable and carbon-negative. 

David Allan, MD at Toynamics UK & Ireland, says: “Korko is a great addition to our brand portfolio.  From Hape to DinosArt, our brands are made to encourage learning through play, and Korko does just that, we’re sure it’ll be loved by parents and children – and retailers.

“As consumer demand for sustainable products continues to grow, Korko gives retailers another great toy brand to meet that demand”.

Toynamics is offering retailers Korko freestanding POS displays and counter top Try Me display units.  There’s also a choice of shelf strips, shelf flags, headers, side boards and wobblers, all designed to communicate the Korko made by nature philosophy, as well as ensuring product standout in store.
