The Moulin Roty brand started life in 1972, in an old mill (moulin) outside of Paris. A group of 20 or so friends searched for a project that would provide work and a desirable lifestyle. The mill was renovated to provide accommodation for their families and they all lived together as a commune.
Today, Moulin Roty retains an avant-garde appeal with stylish ranges of baby toys, clothing and nursery decorations. All of their products are designed in France using French textiles, fabrics and patterns. Moulin Roty’s delightful collection of charming toys capture both the traditional and the ultra-quirky modern.
With more than 800 Moulin Roty products to choose from, Tilda and Tom have hand selected several lines with a view to add more throughout our first year of trading. Moulin Roty was the first of Tilda and Tom brands and it started tehm on their adventure into the world of outstanding European toys and you will always find this brand at the heart of our business.
