‘Taksa’ is a Thai word meaning “Skills.” It is a word that inspires us when we start to think about children in so many ways. The little blank pages ready to be written on, we believe that every child has so much potential to be amplified; they need the right pushes.
While others see them as just little kids wanting to have fun all the time, we see them as little geniuses, each with unique hidden talents that are waiting to be revealed with the proper contexts. At Taksa Toys, “Skills” are not just about being intelligent, scholarly, or able to outperform in sports or musically or artistically, but those ‘human skills’ are as important or even more important, for they are the foundation of everyday living.
The company was founded by a one-of-a-kind family with a unique relationship that includes “2 generations of designers” living under the same roof. Art and design-related conversation are one of the most talked-about topics in the family, followed by other intellectual discussions like morals, politics, science, or even religious point of view, that later on heavily influence the thinking behind design works in significant ways.
Inspired by “The Son’s” final year project in the School of Architecture and Design at KMUTT (Thailand), that for a year became about the only thing that they discussed in the family along with “The Dad’s” long love of Toys, this project has often popped up during dinner talk and all other family time, but with their common lack in motivation to really start making dreams into reality, every time it always stops there. This was when “The Mom” finally had to step in to push the Dad and Son to keep on developing with a strong belief that the project has potential. In late 2015 they decided to launch their first product, ‘Resources®,’ to the market with unique ideas and design as well as an interactive community with their customers.
