Its brands HEIMESS (baby toys made of wood and high-quality plastic, made in Germany), goki, HOLZTIGER  and ANKER Stone Building Sets are well known in the toy and gift trade. The company was founded 34 years ago by its two owners. The HEIMESS brand has existed for over nearly 60 years, and ANKER Steinbaukasten GmbH in Rudolstadt can trace its history back over 130 years.

Gollnest & Kiesel places a very special emphasis on forestation. "Whoever takes something from nature must give something back to it," says Fritz-Rüdiger Kiesel. Every year, Gollnest & Kiesel donates a new forest to Germany's least wooded state, Schleswig-Holstein. A tree is planted for every newborn child in the northernmost federal state. In this way, 300,000 new beech, maple and oak trees have been planted over the past ten years.
