Moulin Roty’s toys, dolls, shadow puppets and baby comforters will add a touch of old-fashioned French flair to your child’s life. Founded in 1972 in a little French village called – you guessed it – Moulin Roty, this company’s plush toys and wooden playthings are both nostalgically sweet and elegantly designed. Kids particularly love the elephant, lion and cat offerings of Moulin Roty’s Les Zazous collection, as well as the themed groups of shadow puppets: dinosaurs and circus animals alike can cavort on the walls once the lights are turned low.
