‘Taksa’ is a Thai word meaning “Skills”. It is a word that inspired us in so many ways when we start to think about children. The little blank pages ready to be written on, we believe that every child has so much potential to be amplified, they just 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 right contexts. At Taksa Toys, “Skills” are not just about being smart scholarly or having the ability 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 founded by a one-of-a-kind-family with a very 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 conversations like morals, politics, science or even religious point of view, that later on heavily influence the thinking behind design works in big 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 has 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.
