THE PLEASURE OF CONSTRUCTING YOUR OWN TOYS

In a World full with technology, our paper toys bring back the pleasure of constructing your own toys. Our toys are meant to be built using the hands, increasing manual dexterity and spatial perception.

We believe that constructing and playing with our toys allows families and generations to interact and to share experiences. It’s that need to see things take shape, to create, to learn and to play with them.

Our toys are genuine.
They aim to enhance in the child, or in whom handles them, an active and creative intervention.
PUKACA believes in the principle that the difference enriches us.
It’s important to have toys that raise creativity, provide new experiences, highlight the human individuality and allow interactivity with others.

THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD

Creating each paper toy is a great challenge.
From the initial idea to the final product there are countless prototypes and hours of hard (fun!) work.

We’re always delighted with the traditional tales, the Brothers Grimm tales, the La Fontaine fables, the Medieval stories, the Natural World and all the other worlds that belong to the children’s imaginary.

CERTIFICATION

PUKACA chooses to design paper toys in which it knows the origin of its components, its type of production and raw materials used.
Our paper toys are 100% designed, printed and assembled in Portugal.

Our paper toys are tested by SGS and comply with EN 71-1 (2014), EN 71-2:2011 + A1:2014, EN 71-3/A1:2014, and 94/62/EC Directive – 2007-1467 Decree.

From the very beginning we decided that our paper toys should be made only with 100% recycled paper only, from 100% de-inked recycled fibres and PCF (Process Chlorine Free).
We use a recycled paper from FSC certified suppliers, with Blue Angel Certification, EU Ecolabel Certification, Process Chlorine Free, Heavy metal absence and it complies with the EU’s Toy Safety (EN 71) standard.

In laboratory analysis tests carried out to our felt finger puppets, we obtained the CE marking for toys for children over 3 years.

Our creations are all unique pieces, as they are handmade not all elements are alike.
All photos are from samples.
