The idea behind Matador
„For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.“
Borrowing it’s motto from Aristotle, a litte workshop in Vienna’s 4th district created the first MATADOR wooden construction kits more than 110 years ago. The concept behind them was based on precision-drilled wooden blocks, connecting rods and wheels that could be put together to create a whole host of differente machines, vehicles, and so on, then taken apart again. And it’s a concept that remains unchanged today.
Building on this brilliant idea MATADOR wood kits are still produced in Austria from domestic hardwood from sustainably managed forests. With the "ear" on the toy market we create, in the MATADOR technology, attractive system kits for different age groups and levels of difficulty based on the present zeitgeist for our youth.
