Meet the CreatorsThe family behind Tikiri has spent most of their lives making soft toys for leading global brands. In 2013, they took their abundant love and knowledge of toys and toddlers and launched Tikiri. Tikiri is dedicated to making only top-quality handcrafted toys that promote a child’s physical and emotional development.
Tikiri — which means “teeny tiny” in our native language of Sinhala — is based in Sri Lanka, a beautiful tropical island in the Indian Ocean with a heritage that goes back over 3,000 years. Our ancient views of nature’s oneness are manifested into everything we make.
Our Thoughts About Toys
In these fast-paced days of technology, we still think that there is room for toys that are high-touch. Especially for children who will largely be formed by the experiences they have by the age of 3. Everything made by Tikiri is designed to create a love and respect for the people and the world around them.
To this end, we:
- Offer parents natural, handmade alternatives to mass produced plastic toys
- Help children unplug, learn new skills, and interact with the real world
- Take care of our employees, pay well for their craftsmanship, and provide a work environment that matches the great pride they put in their work
