The concept behind Kukkia, meaning 'to bloom' or 'flowers' in Finish and 'kook', which means stem in Japanese, is to be a channel between your child and the World. Just as a strong stem is the carrier for all the life from the roots to the flower. Kick can help you and your child blossom! They want kids to get involved with their toys and use their wonderful imaginations to create, change an re-invent how to play - there are no limits!
Their concept is to have tactile shapes that are both subtly and vividly colored, that kids can play with, invent with, and use their amazing imaginations to create and express themselves with.
They have to collections. The first, gg*, has subtle, soft muted colors that show the natural grain of the wood. Most items are finished with bees' wax and come in their own cotton eco-bag.
They launched the second brand: kiko+ in 2011 at Maison & Object show in Paris. Kiko+ is a collection using funky, vivid colors on often matt and unvarnished surfaces so children can feel the wonderful texture of the wood.
Their wish is to give big smiles to kids and their families all over the world. The deal with Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) products for big name companies such as Muji Japan.
kiko+ & gg* consider kids’ safety very important and have the CE safety mark for all of our toys.
