Fanny & Alexander was founded on a fundamental desire to encourage children to play a little more, and a little better - creating and cultivating moments of joy during childhood that will last a lifetime. Their toys are deceptively simple but meticulously made so that they might become a beloved part of your child's life, and endure to be enjoyed by future generations, too.
