Quercetti

100% Made in Italy for 70 Years

The history of Quercitti is the story of its founder, Alessandro Quercetti. After taking part in World War II as a fighter jet pilot, he started working in a small factory producing tin mechanical toys. In a short space of time he took over the company and became its owner.

Hopla, Patented Mechanical Toys became Quercetti in 1950, expanding rapidly, and the workforce increased to more than 200 employees. Alessandro continued to lead the company until he passed away in 2020.

70 years after it was founded, the Quercetti family is still the head of the company, following in the same principles of honesty and sharing inherited by its founder Alessandro.

The entire production cycle, from the design of the toy to its delivery, is carried out in Italy, in the city of Turin. Its workers reside locally, and this creates an essential resource in the region. 

Space for Individual Creativity Allows for Individual Development

Quercetti children’s toys distinguish themselves from other toys in the simplicity of the shapes and in the fact that they leave space for individual creativity. Each toy has a single function, but it also has the potential to be used any way the child can come up with.

Well designed toys can make a child’s world more interesting by stimulating their natural curiosity, allowing children to best develop their own talents and skills in a free playing environment.


Here are just a few of the Quercetti educational toys you’ll find at Teaching & Learning Stuff.

The Lacing Game contains 4 cute cardboard animals to be mounted on wheels and dragged with colored laces.
