Q Toys are crafted by highly skilled craftsmen. Q Toys do not employ and exploit unskilled labor in production lines in poorly equipped factories as sometimes reported in the plastic toy industry. Q Toys ensure highly skilled workers who work with us get a fair deal. Q Toys also train disabled children in Mekong Delta in Vietnam who want to become craftsmen or craftswomen for life.
Q Toys’s Felt products are made by housewives and unemployed girls in the Mekong Delta to provide employment and training in “cottage” industries. Training is provided by QUINS Group who sponsor the “For a better World” program. The workers are paid on the products made.
