Friederich Von Schiller
A MAN IS ONLY FULLY A HUMAN BEING WHEN HE PLAYS

At Globo we believe that playing is a right of all children, without exception.

We consider its presence as fundamental in every step of that wonderful path that leads each of us to become a man.

Our responsibility, even to parents, is to facilitate and support this process with safe and challenging toys.

Our task is to explore the worlds of fun selecting only the most suitable products in order to free the power of imagination, the power of creativity, musical talent and mental flexibility.

Skills that transform every child which is free to play in a child which is free to grow and become a fully human being.
