Bringing development and education in post-soviet enviroment
The whole beginning was marked with oldest sons 3th birthday. Modris and Ramona decided to get him something educational and developing. You can imagine their surprise, when they found...nothing.
And, Modris being very motivated, and Ramona being supportive as supportive one can be, rolled their sleeves up, and started making some of their own. Our first wooden toy was this cube :
And so, step by step, they started to meet other parents, with the same problem. Imagine information environment, where there are only couple of books available about children development ( soviet union wasn't that interested of this field of subject ), and everything is new.
Using their children ( by this stage there already were two bundles of joy ) as test objects, they formed,molded and adjusted every single product, that has been created by theory alone.
We started working really close with other development specialists ( teachers, psychologists, therapists ), growing in this experience.
Step-by-step the support circle grew, word spread and we just celebrated our 21. birthday.
Every day we spend in our little toy shop, meeting new friends, working with parents, consulting about children development and education, listening to funny stories and experiences.
We are still working hand in hand with development specialists as well as children. We are growing every day, and there is nothing more amazing, than loving what you do and spending every day, surrounded by families - your own, and the ones, that just wonders in, looking for support in development.
Every single item, every picture that has been drawn on our toys, is manifest of love for what we do and believe, that we can channel our warmth to whoever receives our toys.
I, Katrina, have graduated from University and tried my strength in several different fields, but i always find my self back at home - in our little toy shop, on this little street in the middle of cities rush.

Sometimes, around 3AM you can hear weird noises of our families living room -then it means, that Ramona has an idea,that cannot wait. Putting her artistic knowledge in good use, she is making sure our toys are not only developing, but also beautiful.
Modris was working hard as a surgeon, until his first born son arrived. He noticed, how hard it is to get developing and educational toys, and decided, that there has to be changes. And now, 24 years later, here we are.
