What does Our Children's Gorilla do?
Our Children's Gorilla was founded in 2002 to design and produce home accessories, children's deco and toys. Our products always encourage the use of imagination and creativity. We have an ever growing collection of environmentally friendly products, made out of carefully selected materials that are superior in quality. We work with our design team as well as select freelance designers. Our products have innovative design solutions developed by our OCG design team. We strive to produce timeless classics with a good sense of humour.
The children's imagination is our inspiration
Where did Our Children's Gorilla get their name from?
At Our Children's Gorilla we are a tight team working together long hours. To keep the kids amused we have various crayons and papers, books and puzzles et cetera lying around. Of course over time our own products have taken a fond place in our kid's play too, but the very first toy in the office and every-bodies favourite was a raggedy old toy gorilla named Bodil. And that's why we want to be Our Children's Gorilla.
Bodil is a Scandinavian unisex name meaning "striving for improvement"
What are Our Children's Gorilla's work ethics?
At Our Children's Gorilla most of us grew up within family businesses or have worked at such previously. In between us we have experience of both smaller companies and large corporations. We are very grateful to be able to work this way and want to encourage others who also create work opportunities within their communities and that's why we try to produce our products at involved and engaged companies. Sometimes our products take us to huge manufacturers and at other times we end up working with small companies making some of our products by hand. At our packing facility we work with people in rehabilitation programs on their way back into employment, some after years of unemployment due to dealing with diverse health issues and handicaps. When sourcing materials for our products we always try to encourage and invest in the development of new materials that are environmentally friendly.
If we make conscious and responsible choices our products will tell the difference and our customers will benefit
At Our Children's Gorilla we pride ourselves in working with really professional people proud of their work and that share our sense of responsibility for what we put out onto the market. As we are dealing with children's products we do not want to use materials that exploit future generation's natural resources, pollute or give of toxins etc.
When you buy an Our Children's Gorilla product you have invested in the development of environmentally friendly materials and production
