Here are toys that tell stories of childhood, about the enormous trees with birds in the shady forest, the scent of the summer, the sun, the heat, the smell of the water. Stories about some special places of Hungary explained through toys.

Today we introduce you to delicious playthings about two places that are full of tales: the hills around Budapest and the Lake Balaton.

Anna Nóra Nagy, Emese Berán and Nóra Garbai have created delicate, evocative toys and accessories that teach children about the world around them, helping them endear the surrounding animals and plants, buildings and vehicles.
