HEIMESS baby toys tested "excellent" by Stiftung Warentest

HEIMESS baby toys tested "excellent" by Stiftung Warentest

Stiftung Warentest tested numerous baby toys for the December issue of the magazine "test". Heimess, the brand for high-quality baby toys from Gollnest & Kiesel, has impressively underlined the brand's importance. Four toys from Heimess were subjected to an intensive series of tests. Two impressed as test winners in their category, two more received a good rating without any criticisms.

Touch rings, soother chains: The test winners come from Heimess

The Rainbow touch ring from Heimess (article number 736740) convinced the product testers with a straight "excellent" for mechanical safety and pollutants. The glazing of the touch ring reveal the fine wood structure. The colours are water-based and naturally completely non-toxic.

The Heimess Moon and Star soother chain from the nature series (article number 733700) has no colours at all. The ecological wood series made of untreated wood is in high demand with consumers and is also ideal for allergy sufferers and immuno-compromised babies.

The Frog soother chain (article number 735170) was given a respectable "good" rating, as was the pram chain vehicles (article number 736000).

Babies have been grasping the world for 60 years with Heimess. The brand for baby toys made of high-quality beech, maple and walnut wood from domestic forests is manufactured 100 percent by hand in Germany and sold worldwide.

Heimess is brand of Gollnest & Kiesel

Gollnest & Kiesel KG is Europe's innovative manufacturer of wooden toys and the largest toy company in northern Germany. Its brands HEIMESS (baby toys made of wood and high-quality plastic, made in Germany), goki and HOLZTIGER  are well known in the toy and gift trade. The company was founded 36 years ago by its two managing directors. The HEIMESS brand has existed for over nearly 60 years. More than 2,000 different products form 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 500 Gollnest & Kiesel employees worldwide are busy making the world a bit more colourful.

Gollnest & Kiesel places a very special emphasis on forestation. "Whoever takes something from nature must give something back to it," believes Fritz-Rüdiger Kiesel, who donates a new forest every year 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.
