British Toymakers' Guild
About British Toymakers' Guild
For over sixty years the British Toymakers Guild has represented designers and makers of the most exquisitely hand-crafted and imaginative toys for both children and adults. Nearly all BTG members’ enterprises are very small, typically just one or two creative people. Some makers are inspired by traditional toymaking, others are strikingly original and innovative.
The Guild is run by craft toymakers for craft toymakers and has always insisted that its members’ work meet its criteria of quality. This means that it has remained a select body with a reputation among the buying public as the representative organization for the creators of well-made toys. We have always had a member of the Guild on the Toy Safety Committee of the British Standards Institute.
The Guild exists to promote and encourage toy-making as a craft throughout the UK.
