About us


Froebel-kan Co.,Ltd. was founded in 1907 with the aim of researching, manufacturing, and selling childcare products, and the company has long been involved in early childhood education, childcare, and publishing. The company is named after the German pedagogue Friedrich Wilhelm Augst Froebel. His creations (known as “Gifts” and considered the origin of toy building blocks) have become our most well-known products as educational toys and materials that enable children to discover and learn how to play using their own abilities.

Our corporate philosophy is “We will contribute to society by creating abundant value with great knowledge and sensitivity that supports for bringing up sound and healthy children,” and we continue to provide attractive, safe, and secure products and services in order to contribute to the upbringing of children.

We currently engage in a broad range of businesses aimed at supporting the upbringing of children, including making proposals for childcare environments, planning and selling childcare products, publishing a monthly magazine, publishing childcare and children’s books, operating and producing childcare support facilities, and operating content distribution services.
