Janod is a French brand specialising in the creation of traditional toys and games from wood and cardboard.

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.


Louis Janod began the Janod business in Orgelet in 1970. In 2004 the JURATOYS group was created and the company began to develop internationally.

Janod expanded its product range in 2008 by introducing cardboard products such as the puzzles, and creating one of its wooden bestsellers: The Magnetic World Puzzle.


The Janod brand was voted the 3rd most popular brand among mothers for baby and toddler toys.*LSA, MOM Online Study, May 2016. The Baby Forest faun was voted mothers’ favourite learning toy as part of the Mother’s Voice Consumer Award at the “Kind & Jugend” trade fair in Cologne in 2017. The brand is again acclaimed by mothers in 2018 -- it was voted as 2nd favourite brand for toddler toys. *IDM, Etude Online MOM, Vague avril 2018
