All in the Family: The Kohner Family

While the Kohner Bros. may no longer exist, there’s a reason its toys continue to live on today. What started as a wooden bead-making company on the Czech/German border evolved into one of the most well-known toy-making families in history. CHITAG’s Mary Couzin chats with Michael Kohner about his family’s toy history.

All in the Family: The Gibsons

This week, we chat with Kate Gibson of the UK-based Gibsons Games, a fourth generation company that has flourished even in the face of setbacks such as having its premises destroyed in the London Blitz of World War II. If you meet Kate, you’ll immediately sense her passion and drive for her family, her team, and Gibsons’ mission. If you chat a bit longer, you’ll find she keeps Prosecco and chocolate in the fridge.
