Toy Vault is proud that we were the first toy company in the world to credit all the artists involved with our products on our toy packaging.

We understand that if it weren’t for the wonderfully talented sculptors, illustrators, and painters, we couldn't produce the fine quality products we have become famous for.

We would like to give some brief information on a few of the many artists that have contributed to the success of our company.
