Father's Factory is a family owned brand that offers magical moments to families around the world. Jimmy and Tammy started their design journey at Art Center College of Design. After their two daughters were born, Jimmy often built toys with cardboard for them to spark their creativity and imagination. Over time, these cardboard toys had become an important part of the girls’ lives. They decorated the cardboard castle and imagined it populated by flying dragons, fighting knights, and dancing princesses.
Seeing the many magical moments that his work bought to his family, Jimmy was inspired to spread the joy with parents and kids around the world. He started to design toys that would bring families together and create memories that would last lifetimes. Before we went into production, he spent about 3 years to design and prototyped the first line of product at his own "factory" (his garage), hence the name “Father’s Factory” was born.
Today, Father’s Factory offers heirloom quality wooden toys that encourage kids to explore their world. Their first collection is SayCheese! - wooden toy cameras with kaleidoscopic lens. Kids love them, and parents love seeing their kids pretending to be their little budding photographers. These beautiful wooden toy cameras can be doubled as interior decor too.
Father’s Factory’s second collection is the WoodCam - wooden digital cameras. They are working cameras with beautifully designed wooden camera cases. These wooden digital cameras encourage the art of photography in our children. They give us opportunities to enjoy the present moment rather than focusing on taking the perfect photos. In a world of “instant” and “now”, these are perfect to teach children patience, understanding delays, and how to deal with disappointment. They are for kids of all ages, including adults who are kids at heart.
When Jimmy and Tammy are not busy designing their next wooden toys, they love spending time with their two daughters building legos, collecting toys, or playing out in their garden.
