Matador has recently celebrated its 120th birthday and you know if a toy has been around for that long, it must be a hit with the kids. Matador’s original “Hammer-Pin-System” was invented in 1899 by Johann Korbuly, an Austrian engineer, and patented shortly afterwards. Over the years Matador changed owners a few times but all of them kept the production in Europe and used their engineerings skills to improve Johann’s original design to what Matador toys look like today.

Matador’s unique building concept allows children to work on their fine motor skills, solve problems and to be creative and imaginative thanks to endless building possibilities. The “Hammer-Pin-System” simultaneously fosters technical understanding and engineering skills, spacial awareness and 3D comprehension. But nothing beats the sense of achievement once your child has managed to complete a model. Matador's focus lies on creating attractive toys while protecting the environment at the same time. Sourcing timber from sustainably managed local forests, using a sophisticated production process that minimises wood waste and using regional suppliers for their packaging are just a few processes Matador has implemented in order to look after the environment. The majority of Matador’s building blocks is untreated and any coloured part has been dyed using non-toxic paint making all parts safe for children to mouth and play with. Matador is proud to call itself a family-friendly company - team work plays a big role at Matador and Matador’s employees get every support they need when family issues arise.
