Lobster: Always a treat, not only on a plate.

Lobster: Always a treat, not only on a plate.

Il est arrivé: The lobster has emerged from the depths of the sea, where he spent the bleak winter months. Now he is on his way to shallower waters that the creature prefers in the summer. One of the crustaceans has decided to take a different path and has landed in the tranquil town of Güster not far from Hamburg. He finds shelter there with a local wooden toy manufacturer.

It is rumoured that it was no coincidence that the crustacean, which now answers to the name of Rüdiger, stayed there in order to model as a pull-along animal.

In the meantime, the crustacean has become a real highlight in the goki range of pull-along animals. goki is the name of the internationally renowned brand for wooden toys.

Anyone who sees this solid wood sea-dweller in action can't help but smile. It's a delight to see the working claws snap and rattle. Admittedly, being from the north we have a special relationship with everything that comes from the sea, but even landlubbers will not be able to resist this charming crustacean.

As a pull-along animal, the goki lobster is almost as big as a Helgoland lobster (27 x 18 x 9 cm) and also cuts a fine figure as decoration.

If you think that the lobster is worth trying out, we will be pleased to deliver a freshly caught Rüdiger free to your door.

Its brands HEIMESS (baby toys made of wood and high-quality plastic, made in Germany), goki, HOLZTIGER and ANKER Stone Building Sets enjoy a high profile within the toy and gift item trade. The company was founded 36 years ago by its two managing directors, the HEIMESS brand has existed for 60 years, and ANKER Steinbaukasten GmbH in Rudolstadt can trace its history back 135 years. More than 2,000 different products account for one of the most widely varied ranges anywhere in the toy industry.

"We produce toys for children's hands, heads and souls," says Gerhard Gollnest. Over 600 Gollnest & Kiesel employees worldwide are busy bringing more colour to the world.

In 2015, the company won first place in a major retail trade survey conducted by the industry information service "markt intern", making it the number one toy maker. Impressive first places were achieved above all in commercially central disciplines.

Gollnest & Kiesel places a very special emphasis on forestation. "Whoever takes something from nature must give something back to it," says Fritz-Rüdiger Kiesel and donates a new forest to Germany's least wooded state, Schleswig-Holstein, every year. A tree is planted for every newborn child in the northernmost federal state. In this way, 350,000 new beech, maple and oak trees have been planted over the past 13 years.
