While we’re incredibly proud of the beautiful fashion brands we carry, La Mère Village is also excited to offer products from the beloved French toy brand Moulin Roty. From precious little tea sets to stylish “Parisienne” dolls, Moulin Roty has spent decades creating enchanting toys and goods for children to enjoy.

The brand's journey began in 1972 when a group of friends shared a vision to create beautiful, heirloom-quality toys reminiscent of the toys from days gone by. Their first offerings were “The Soft Car,” a small toy made of wood, foam, and fabric, and “La Douillette,” a delicate doll that rose to popularity in the toy and nursery markets. 

They named the brand after the French words "Moulin" (windmill) and "Roty" (snail). Symbolizing the circle of life and the sense of timelessness they sought to embody in their creations. “Moulin” also serves as a tribute to their original home and workshop, which was an old mill that had fallen into disrepair before being renovated into a living space for the group’s families.

Imagination, Inspiration, and Creativity

Moulin Roty was founded with a deep commitment to preserving the magic of childhood and inspiring imaginative play. The founders envisioned toys that would be both captivating and cherished, passed down through generations and embracing the essence of cherished memories and family traditions.

At the core of Moulin Roty's values lies the belief in fostering creativity, wonder, and a strong emotional connection between children and their toys. The brand aspires to bring joy to little ones while encouraging meaningful interactions, social skills, and a sense of comfort. Most importantly security through their meticulously crafted products.

Why We Carry Moulin Roty

We at La Mère Village chose to carry Moulin Roty products in our store for several reasons. One of which is their dedication to using high-quality materials for their toys. This process involves choosing soft, gentle materials that are non-toxic and exercising strict safety standards during each stage of production.
