is a brand by Gollnest and Kiesel. A German company founded in 1971 by Gerhard Gollnest and Fritz-Ruediger Kiesel.
The company has grown constantly since then, and for the last twenty years it has enjoyed strong growth in Güster, a small town not far from Hamburg. Holztiger is now over 15 years old. There are more than 400 figures, such as cows, pigs, dogs, dragons, monkeys and people for eight different worlds that are made of stable maple wood.
The Holztiger figures are large and good to grip for children's hands. They are individually handcrafted out of solid maple wood, softly rounded and painted by hand using watercolours. They are about 2.5 cm thick and pleasant to the touch. They are distinguished by their high play value and are frequently collected for years until they form a complete play world.
