Hello there! We are a family of four: Donatas, Sigita, Goda and Saule, and we are the creators of Friendly toys. Dad Donatas works with wood, mom Sigita hand-paints the toys while little daughters Goda and Saule run the Inspiration and Criticism department. We live and create the toys in the countryside of Lithuania.
When we were expecting our first child we decided that we don’t want to raise our baby in a busy capital city, therefore we left our jobs and moved to a cozy little house by a forest. We did not have any guaranteed work there which sounds crazy and a bit dramatic, but it turned out to be the best: we got to know ourselves better and figured out our priorities. After we did that, the rest came very naturally.
