Qtoys is part of the Quins Group, an Australian owned company founded by Dr. Quan Nguyen and Cathy Dang, M.Ed. Their team includes artists, teachers, engineers and industrial designers focused on the educational value, design quality and enjoyment of each and every product.
Over many years the range has grown to include Montessori & Steiner Inspired Toys, Blocks and Construction Toys, Push and Pull Toys, Pretend Play, Wooden Vehicles, Baby Rattles, Educational Resources and Children’s Furniture.
ETHICAL EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS AND TRAINING
All QToys products have very high quality finishes. Approximately 80% of the wooden range is crafted by hand in their own factory, based in Vietnam. Their highly skilled workforce is employed under ethical conditions using materials sourced from sustainable plantation timber. QToys also teach woodcraft skills to disabled children in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam ensuring they will have employment skills for life. Their Felt products are made by housewives and unemployed girls in the Mekong Delta to provide employment and training in “cottage” industries. Training is provided by QUINS Group who sponsor the “For a better World” program and workers are paid according to the products made.
ECO FRIENDLY PRACTICES & SAFETY STANDARDS
Timber is sourced from plantation rubber trees, acacia trees and coconut trees. QToys make use of the discarded branches of rubber and acacia trees after whole trees are cut down. Instead of being burnt, these branches are carefully selected and treated to become part of their beautiful products.
Natural finishes such as beeswax and linseed oil are used on the QToys range along with child friendly non-toxic paints or food grade dyes.
All products adhere to Australian Safety Standards as well as those in America and Europe (CE).
