LILALU was founded in 2004 as a family business by Imke Buchholz and Ralf Wikisnky in Aachen, in the very west of Germany. From the beginning our goal was to design our products – formerly wooden and plush toys – to put a smile on people's faces and to "SHARE HAPPINESS". Over the years and with commitment and enthusiasm for our products, the company developed and we became a special supplier for rubber ducks and plush toys.
The name of our company goes back to our children's idea. Since then our children have come to play an important role in the company: Today Tammo Buchholz is directing manager. His parents still advise Tammo on important questions regarding the company's management - after all, the designation as a family company is not just on paper, but we live it: New designs e.g. are discussed at the kitchen table.
We can look back on many years – decades even - of experience in the retail business and know what's important with plush toys and rubber ducks: Quality – and that is what we guarantee. Our products' great quality together with cute designs of plush toys and rubber ducks have led to a still increasing demand. Accordingly, our company has grown as well over the past few years. Starting with only two employees, the LILALU team has constantly increased in size – and quality. By now, more than 20 employees ensure on a daily basis that our expectations regarding the products' quality, customer service and a fair cooperation with our partners are met, despite this ongoing growth.
Our unique selling point is the wide variety of different designs of rubber ducks and plush toys. The range of various motives is steadily growing and with it our need of storage premises. That is why we moved to bigger office- and storage rooms in 2014 to still be able to process all requests smoothly and quickly. As a wholesale business for rubber ducks ad plush toys we distribute the uniquely designed LILALU products from Aachen to the whole world: from the Arabian Peninsula, Asia and Australia to South America, Russia and Europe - you can find our rubber ducks and plush toys almost everywhere in the world.
In the course of an ongoing internationalisation and our steady growth, we have rearranged our company in the summer of 2016 and the new LILALU GmbH was founded. Concurrently, we also changed our outer appearance and the online presentation of our rubber ducks and plush toys – a new, appealing homepage ensures the best possible accessibility and customer service. Additionally, you will, from now on, find our rubber ducks and plush toys in the social media as well. Keep on looking at Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest and make yourself and your friends smile. Life is simply more beautiful when you SHARE HAPPINESS.
In the future we want to keep developing, keep up with the times and let loose our creativity and ideas, so they can keep inspiring the creation of our distinctive, high-quality plush toys and rubber ducks - according to our motto "SHARE HAPPINESS".
