  • For more than 30 years, we are crafting our miniatures in the small town of Crottendorf, Erzgebirge. The wooden toy maker Ronald Graupner and his wife Kordula Graupner founded the family business in 1986 - they were still using the basement of their home, being under the repressing regulations of the East-German socialist government.

    During all these years, more and more little figures and scenes have been added. Today, we are able to draw on a design repertoire of more than 5.000 different small parts of wood – in very special levels of detail in our own ability. The Graupner Miniatures always remained faithfully to their design and their high standards of originality.

    A matt, glazing coloring of our products soon became our unique hallmark.

    Also, a wide range of Christmas tree ornaments soon became our flagship. With more than 200 different motivs, a lot of them are also available in different colors, we are the market-leading manufacturer from the Erzgebirge.
