kiko + wants to grow with kids.
Kids are like tiny artists
Each like a sparkling star in the sky
We will walk together, sharing each step, by step.

Toys to help kids use their imaginations and enjoy every moment of play.
A special moment of magic is what we hope to create.
Like the spark in a kid's eye when they show their family the toys they are playing with.
The look of happiness on everyone's faces when sharing in this moment of joy, is what we want to cherish.
To deliver a smile to children all over the world is what I wish with all my heart. . . Kaz *

about kiko+ items kiko+の商品について

kiko + brand is inspired by Kaz Shiomi, Kukkia's director.
Kaz wanted to produce wooden toys with fun shapes and vivid colours in collaboration with various guest product designers.
kiko+ debuted at the Maison & Objet salon, Paris in January 2011.

kiko + toy brand's theme is "art and play, play and children and children and the Forest".
We are developing wooden toys aimsd at children around the World, to maintain a sound environment and forests we use wood certified by the international organization · FSC® management and certification (Forest Stewardship Council = Forest Stewardship Council).

In addition, we use clear safety standards body · ASTM International, (the world's largest scale "ASTM", safety standards) · We also have the 'Conformite Europeenne' of Europe "CE EN71", toy safety standard. If you look closely, kiko + uses a logo where the font of the first character is different. This is to represent all the different races, languages and cultures of children from around the World. The shape of the 'k' looks a bit like someone moving forward towards the next 'k' letter.
The meaning of "child" has also been put into the name. In Japanese "ko" means "child" and "ki" means 'wood'.
There is also a meaning for the '+'. It is to say thanks to the people who have helped create and build kiko +.

Without the cooperation of many people, the factory and public support, it would not be possible to make any our products. The "+" represents the feeling of thanks for the product that is made with your support.
Another meaning for the '+' is that we hope children for many generations to come will want to play with our toys.
