Our story began in 1971 as part of BRIO and in 2006 we became Lekolar. Today, we have around 370 employees in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland, and are headquartered in Osby, Sweden. In 2021, our revenues amounted to SEK 1.53 billion. Since 2017, the company is owned by Nalka Invest.

With safety and sustainability in the first place

Our highest priority is to guarantee the safety of children, educators, and the manufacturers of our products. It is about offering sustainable and non-toxic products of high quality that are safe for the children and educators who use them, taking a great social responsibility throughout the value chain, and reducing our impact on the environment. This means, among other things, that we are in a transition to a circular economy and that we are working towards ambitious sustainability goals. In 2015, we also became the first in the industry to sign Operation non-toxic preschool.
