Made with care

In over 70 countries, children play with the durable Educo materials. This is because our materials are practically indestructible! And of course, all our materials conform to international safety standards.

In our factories, craftsmanship is the keyword. We have 3 production facilities: one in the Netherlands, one in Sri Lanka and one in China. All 3 of them have a lot of experience in making educational products. This results in high quality, safe and sustainable products. Mainly the Hape factory in Ningbo, China, manufactures Educo materials.
