Made in Italy toys are signed by Quercetti
Retro style, imagination and beauty: these are the characteristics that distinguish the ever green Italian games. Alessandro Quercetti began to devote himself to toys in the early 50s, back from the Second World War. Immediately he proved to have a great imagination and good intuition, producing mechanical toys which became popular in our country but also abroad. In 1953 he decided to buy ”Coloredo“, a French game similar to the famous “Chiodini”. After an initial period in which he just sell the French product in Italy, Quercetti began to make a series of improvements, introducing plastic and colored nails with the famous mushroom shape of different sizes: Chiodini Quercetti were just born, ready to become one of the best sellers ever.
Over time the Chiodini game has evolved and the company created more and more new toys to suit all tastes. The success of Quercetti around the world is due to its great respect for children: in the early years of life you put the foundation for all learning, the skills and knowledge that will develop over the rest of your existance and a huge tool to develop in early childhood is game. That’s why it’s so important to give to it the right value. In Nano Bleu we share these values and we always try to offer to all children educational toys, since 1949.
