Janod is a French brand specialising in the creation of traditional toys and games from wood and cardboard. It has stood the test of time by adapting to the needs of children discovering its toys for the first time, and the memories of their parents who have grown up with them. Louis Janod began the Janod business in Orgelet, Le Jura, France in 1970. The company’s activities focused on the creation and sale of traditional wooden toys (including spinning tops, yo-yos, and skittles). In 2004, the company expanded nationally and the Juratoys group was created. Like the brand and its products, the company grows every year and contributes to maintaining a dynamic centre for economic activity in Le Jura. Today, 75 people contribute to making children’s eyes shine bright with joy.
Janod creates colourful and original toys, designed for children’s development through play. The Janod philosophy is "play different' through design, imagination and learning. Whether it’s putting together two parts of a puzzle, building a tower with a few cubes, screwing, unscrewing, following a path with their fingers or pushing the right key of a xylophone, playing requires a lot of effort from your child. Respecting their preferences and leaving them free to experience things, even if the game materials are used in an unusual way, will enable them to succeed in asserting themselves and improve their skills, giving them self-confidence through play, Janod toys also stimulate the imagination, enabling children to create stories and lasting memories through play.
