Kokito is a family business of wooden toys, run by two women Marika Grigolishvili and Laliko Gogiberidze.
The primary objective of Kokito was immediately apparent: to provide safe neurocognitive toys to Georgian children and, later, to produce products for the export market. This is how the company developed a wide range of toys for children aged 0 to 6, including wooden horses, building blocks, puzzles, mechanical toys, pedal-less bicycle, and others.
Each Kokito model is inspired by Montessori and Waldorf approaches and assists children in developing fine motor skills and sensory stimulation at a young age.
,,With the support of Enterprise Georgia we participate in the international toy exhibition Spielwarenmesse annually. Within the framework of the exhibition, we worked closely with a German consultant and established relations with German brands" - Marika Grigolishvili, co-founder of Kokito.
At this time, the company is in active negotiations with up to ten German companies looking for partners in EU countries. Kokito has already sent test samples to companies and hosted representatives from several well-known brands in Georgia.
Kokito produces 500-600 units of product per month, but the founders anticipate that if international interest grows, they will be able to increase the number of products tenfold.
"Every day, we invest heavily in brand development, international relations, and professional development. I believe our company is ready to enter a new phase of development and present the brand's image much more professionally, both in the Georgian market and on a global scale " says Marika Grigolishvili, co-founder of Kokito.
The Kokito founders advise budding entrepreneurs to participate in all possible projects and exhibitions and to take an advantage of this opportunity to raise awareness in the international markets.
