Fanny & Alexander was founded on a fundamental desire to encourage children (and the adults who love them) to play a little more, and a little better. Their founder, Delfina Aguilar, had long been captivated by objects that were well-conceived, well-designed, and well-made, but after becoming an aunt, and later a mother, she quickly realized that very few toys in her family's toy chest possessed these qualities. Where were the toys made from handsome natural materials for little hands to cherish, or the toys that engaged limitless imagination, or called their playmates to join in on important adventures? This was how Fanny & Alexander was born. Fastidiously designed and made, theirs are deceptively simple toys that require no power source except the child's own ideas and energy. Made from furniture-standard hardwoods, soft leathers and quality fabrics, they are designed to be a pleasure to look at and a joy to play with. They're designed to last, and to be loved.
