In 2003, Artoyz started with very few ways, only the website www.artoyz.com. Founded by four Graphic Culture and Toys Culture Friends, the company quickly became great, including many and famous Store concept, like Colette. Faced with a strong demand from all over Europe, the four men quickly started to become a distributor for many designer brands of Toys, such as Toy2R, Kidrobot, AdFuntur, Muttpop and Bonustoyz. Following a growing success, they decide to open a shop in 2005, located rue de l'Tree dry, in the first arrondissement of Paris. Artoyz is today the biggest blind of Toys in Europe, with a surface of 50 square meters, the gallery welcomed prestigious artists, like Yukinori Dehara, Circus Posterus, Mr Clement, Tim Tsui, Pete Fowler, Mist, Bunka, Superbye and Tik Ka. Since its inception, Artoyz has proposed more than fifty exhibitions!
In 2008, they were able to realize their greatest dream: to produce their own Toy and all this creates by their own brand, Artoyz Originals. Since then, they have made more than sixty toys in collaboration with artists such as Alexöne, Jonone, 123klan, Mist, Superwink, Easy Hey, Bunka, Stephane Levallois, Brandt Peters or Kathie Olivas.
