Holger und Ingo Legler founded the Handelshaus Legler in Delmenhorst in 1988. At the time they concentrated on importing and selling promotional items and gifts made of wood. In 1995 the two company founders shifted their focus onto wooden toys and constantly extended their range of products to also include decoration items and gifts, for example. What started more than 20 years ago is now a successful company with operations throughout Europe. Our range currently features around 3,000 articles including more than 500 new developments every year and a number of product developments designed by us and sold under our own brand name "small foot design".

To promote the health and enjoyment of nature of our employees we have been cooperating with the Gesundheitskasse AOK as part of their "Cycle to work" campaign since 2010. Fruit baskets every week and support for joint fitness activities underline this commitment.
From graduates to committed trainees - development potential is recognised and incentives taken seriously! Individual and prompt implementation of financial and time-related support is appreciated by all employees.
The company shareholders Holger and Ingo Legler as well as Timo Sommer have been focusing on sustainability and social commitment for many years and personally mentor the many projects.
