Kay Bojesen possessed that special quality of being able to bring wood to life. Regarded as one of Denmark's most popular designers he is most famous for creating a wonderful collection of wooden toy animals all with soul and an impish sense of humour!
Kay Bojesen was born in 1886 and graduated as a Silversmith in 1910 after completing his apprenticeship with Georg Jensen.
It was the birth of his son Otto that inspired his wonderful wooden toy animal collection. His idea was not to produce lifelike copies of real animals but instead to create imaginative toys that were simple, solid and inspirational - toys that would last a lifetime and appeal to adults and children alike.
Today his four grandchildren closely guard the important design heritage that Kay Bojesen left behind and have chosen The Rosendahl Group to develop, manufacture and distribute their grandfather's designs.
