Montreal's Des Enfantillages toys

Geneviève Lugaz and Christian Laforge wear many hats as the duo behind visual communication and graphic design agency Shed ­espace créatif, putting their spin on everything from business cards to boats. But it’s hardly all work and no play for these hip parents, who created a colourful line of children’s toys, Des Enfantillages, turning tiny tots onto high design the world over. It’s fun for the whole family: Along with their own parents, Geneviève and Christian handcraft each piece in Montreal, using cherrywood, ­water-based paints, felt and­ beeswax. It’ll be fun for your family, too, when you bring home their funky pompom slingshots, knitted hockey sticks, jump ropes and toy trucks.

Toys from $18
Available in Montreal at Comme des enfants, 122, rue Bernard O.,
