Built for kids, by kids at heart.

Who we are

We’re a team of designers, developers, thinkers, doers and office dogs. We make digital and physical toys that kids (and parents) love. We’re powered by a love for play and the office espresso machine.

Toca Boca logo Proudly Canadian, Sago Mini is a subsidiary of Toca Boca, the No.1 mobile-first kids brand in the App Store. Both companies are part of Spin Master, a leading global children’s entertainment company.

Core Values

We believe that laughter helps kids learn. That open-ended activities open doors and that the best things in life start with play.

Designed for the modern kid.

Each time we design a new product, we’re guided by these three questions.

  • Does it encourage kids to explore, imagine and discover?
  • Is it intuitive, beautiful and fun to play?
  • Does it meet our high standards of quality and safety?
