Janod stands the test of time - Janod is a French brand specialising in the creation of traditional toys and games from wood and cardboard. In 1970 Louis Janod began the Janod business in Orgelet, France. The company’s activities focused on the creation and sale of traditional wooden toys (including spinning tops, yo-yos, and skittles). It has stood the test of time by adapting to the needs of children discovering its toys for the first time, and the memories of their parents who have grown up with them.
