sigikid is a family owned company whose roots go way back – in fact, more than 150 years back! sigikid’s German parent company “H. Scharrer & Koch GmbH” was founded in 1856 in Bayreuth/ Bavaria, initially manufacturing glass beads for export. In 1910, Theo Köhler, the great-grandfather of sigikid’s current owner, took over, and slowly introduced toys made out of glass beads to the product line.
When the next generation took over in 1968, the trademark sigikid was born. The name is a combination of the founder’s first name “Sigi” (short for Sigrid) and “kid” – Axel, the first child born into the Gottstein family. True to a traditional family business, Axel runs now the business in Germany, while his sister Eva handles business development in the Americas.
