Axis Toys has been appointed as the Australian and New Zealand distributor for German brand Kikadu.
Launched three years ago, Kikadu has become known for its organic toys, accessories and lifestyle products.
The brand constructs its products from organic cotton, natural rubber and recycled PET bottles and ensures that each step in its value chain is checked and traceable, helping it earn the Global Organic Textile Standard certification.
Axis Toys co-founder Paula Opfer said that that Axis is excited to bring the brand to Australia and New Zealand.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Kikadu.
"Kikadu creates beautiful, truly organic toys and products designed for children and their parents that are modern, yet also sustainable and fair.
"Kikadu’s production acts in harmony with humans, animals and the environment, thereby making a serious contribution to a better world and we are delighted to be part of that.
"The women behind Kikadu are also inspirational, with an impressive reputation in the industry, Opfer adds.
"Together they are bringing all their knowledge and talent to the table to create a brand that is second to none," she said.
Kikadu managing partner Andrea-Kathrin Christenson said that the brand is thrilled to partner with Axis - a business which shares similar values.
"Axis have a strong reputation and long-standing history in the industry and we are very impressed with their line-up of brands which mirrors ours in terms of quality and values.
"They, like Kikadu, believe that ecology, economy and social responsibility can work hand in hand.
"We all bear a responsibility to our planet and can make a contribution to it – and we are proud to have a partner in Axis Toys who think the same way," she said.
