The British Toymakers Guild is a not-for-profit trade organisation that was set up in 1956 to promote and encourage excellence in toymaking. The Guild represents over 150 craftspeople including makers of puppets, dolls, rocking horses, teddy bears and wooden toys.
To be a full member of the British Toymakers Guild, each producer must provide examples of their work to a selection committee who then assess the work based on their stringent quality guidelines.
Only toymakers that are deemed to meet the British Toymakers Guild exacting standards are accepted. In this respect, you could say that the Guild acts rather like the various toy safety logos, where only manufacturers that have passed rigorous examination can display the logo on their products.
The high level of scrutiny demanded by the British Toymakers Guild ensures that it retains its reputation amongst the toy-buying public and also within the trade. If you want to see more companies that are proud to make their toys here in the UK, take a look at our Made In Britain page.
