Once Upon A Moulin Roty

The Moulin Roty story started back in 1972 when a group of 20 or so friends were searching for a common project that would provide both work and a certain way of life. The group decides to purchase an old mill that has fallen into ruins. They renovate the mill bit by bit so that their families can move in and live there together as a commune. The adventure begins with screen printing and craft items (lamps, jewellery, decorative items . . . )

From the beginning the Moulin Roty Workshop specialised in decorative items. It then went on to children’s and nursery rooms and launched wooden paintings, height charts, clocks as well as small stack-up wooden toys.

A fire destroyed the entire workshop in 1988 leaving nothing in its wake. The designs, stock, files and machines were completely lost. Moulin Roty moved to Nort sur Erdre, 15 kilometres away and decided to begin from scratch. 

Fast forward to 2024 and Moulin Roty’s collections combine softness, fantasy and tenderness, while developing an irreproachable quality standard. These 50 years they have delighted children with Moulin Roty Toys that are a delight to give as much as they are to receive.
