For over 100 years Vilac has been making toys for children. It all started in Grenoble, in the South East of France in 1911 and remains in the same area to this day !
In the French department and mountains of Jura, the first Vilac childrens toys we lovingly turned on a lathe, shaped, polished and lacquered from a beech tree. Since these humble beginnings at the start of the last century, Vilac has earned its position as one of the most celebrated wooden toy makers in France and Europe. To this day many toys are still crafted in the Jura area with wood from France.
We fell in love with Vilac toys when we began our adventure at French Blossom and have stocked them ever since. We started with some of the solid wooden car toys and then added a varierty of pull along toys. Recently we added some beautiful childrens puzzles to our collection !
This toy manufacturer designs wonderful role play toys plus many fantastic musical toys for babies and children. Take for instance the vilac piano which children can actually play and imagine themselves as the next little Mozart. The piano has 18 little keys and even comes with some musical sheets to teach little ones basic tunes.
At French Blossom you can also find, childrens xylophones, a fun accordion, drums and the super vilac guitar for children.
In recent years Vilac has started to work with artists from around the world on certain collections! Two of these artists are Keith Haring and the French artist Nathalie Lete.
The Nathalie Lete Paris puzzle and the guitar she designed are really original as is the Childrens teepee which as another collaboration between Vilac and Nathalie Lete.
