About

Our mission is to make your days colorful ones.

Hello!

PUKACA was founded in 2005 by the designers Isabel Vaz & Nuno Dias.
Isabel loves to draw small creatures and Nuno loves to make them alive.
In 2016, Sara Vaz joined our design team, bringing her bright and fresh ideas to PUKACA.

Isabel & Nuno decided to create their own brand - PUKACA - and began to put ideas into practice. Today, we're a company committed to design and manufacture unique paper toys and paper products that are made thinking about children and, for children.

We love to feel that our creations bring joy and happiness to everyone.

Our toys are genuine.

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.

They aim to enhance in the child, or in whom handles them, an active and creative intervention. We believe 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.


Creating each paper toy is a great challenge.

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.

From the initial idea to the final product there are countless prototypes and hours of hard (fun!) work.

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.

From the very beginning we decided that our paper toys should be made only with 100% recycled paper, 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.


Our work has been featured by Anorak, Apartment Therapy, LMNOP Magazine, Do It Yourself Magazine, My Child Magazine, A Lovely Lark, Design Is Yay, Oh Happy Day, Popsugar, Bambino Goodies, Mum’s Grapevine, Style.it and Etsy.


Enjoy!
