Matador has recently celebrated its 120th birthday. If a toy has been around for that long then you know 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 has changed owners a few times but they have all kept the production of Matador in Europe and they have used their engineering skills to further improve Johann’s original design, making Matador toys what they are today.
Matador’s unique building concept allows children to work on their fine motor skills, solve problems and be creative and imaginative thanks to endless building possibilities.
The 'Hammer-Pin-System' simultaneously fosters technical understanding, engineering skills, spacial awareness and 3-D comprehension. But nothing beats the sense of achievement once your child has managed to complete a model.
