BooToo: locally designed educational toys

South African entrepreneur Daniel Jillings, creates aesthetically pleasing children’s toys.

Created and produced by South African entrepreneur Daniel Jillings, BooToo toys are designed to be educational, helping children to develop important new skills. Jillings, an industrial designer, was inspired by his own children to create BooToo.

The range of toys is made from Birch and Bass wood, which means that they’re high quality, long lasting and aesthetically pleasing.

The collection includes rocking horses, balance bikes, educational toys and children’s furniture. The products have been thoroughly researched to incorporate features that contribute to the early development of young children.

Jillings aptly describes one of the BooToo creations, the Rock Bok, as “South Africa’s answer to the classic wooden rocking horse.”
