Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

The famous Moon Family returned to our collection in May – looking just the same as when Olly Wendt designed them back in 1925. Now, more than 90 years on, Father Moon, Mother Sun and their four Star Children watch over young and old alike as they sleep. With their beaming faces they enchant all who see them, both by day and night, and make a heavenly gift to mark a birth, a christening or a birthday.

Creating lasting
birthday memories

Birthdays are such special days. Loved ones come to visit, wishes are shared, laughter and merriment fills the air. When you’re looking to make someone’s big day all that much brighter and create a lasting memory for them, our Well-Wishers are just the right envoys! Why not make it even more personal by having your loved one’s name inscribed on the base of the figurine? 

My Wendt & Kühn

Did you know that Wendt & Kühn now grants individual wishes? It’s absolutely true when you have us add your own personal inscription to selected figurines. That’s what our “My Wendt & Kühn” offer is all about: High-quality unique pieces, never to be duplicated again in all the world. A distinctively personal way to say “thanks” 365 days of the year, extend birthday wishes or commemorate a baptism. From the very first day of school to the very last final examination, these Grünhainichen figurines are always delighted to take on the role of a personable well-wisher. 

The art of craftsmanship

Wendt & Kühn has stood for fine German craftsmanship at its most beautiful since 1915. At Wendt & Kühn, the mastery and artistry of figurine manufacturing has been passed down from generation to generation. We draw on a wealth of original samples and designs in conscientiously developing them in contemporary interpretations.

The joys of winter

A delicate dusting of snow on the fields and meadows is the first sign that this year’s winter is on its way. This charming duo – the Girl with Sleigh and the Boy with Tree – are a sweet foretaste of what we can look forward to: the first toboggan run, long winter walks with snowball fights, building snowmen and drinks of hot chocolate afterwards. They are the perfect companions for this final season of the year and a stylish gift for winter children, young and old.

Hardworking kindly spirits

Who is there who is not familiar with the chore of having to clean our house or apartment? The house cleaning, the small and somewhat larger repairs, and all the preparations required for a celebration – a seemingly endless succession of tasks. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you didn’t have to do them all yourself? This year three gnomes with their traditional red pointed hats returned to the collection, ready to carry out their secret mission with broom and bucket, with boot or with a roll of fabric. The perfect gift for a house warming, a wedding or simply as a decoration for your own home.

A new special exhibition at the Wendt & Kühn World

Figurines in national and regional dress

The grand design legacy of Wendt & Kühn includes numerous figurines depicting different nationalities and wearing regional costumes. The first four figurines were designed and made by the young student Grete Wendt and her father Albert, before the company was founded. They were a bride and groom, and a farmer and his wife, all wearing Weizacker regional dress. The focus on national dress and regional costumes provided particularly attractive opportunities for demonstrating design and painting skills. Some 90 exhibits, including numerous figurines and previously unseen design sketches, documents and photos from the private archives of Grete Wendt and Olly Wendt, née Sommer, are currently on display in the special exhibition “From Japan to Bavaria – figurines in national and regional dress” in the historic gallery of the Wendt & Kühn World in Grünhainichen. We look forward to welcoming you!

For those special treasures

These splinter boxes are real gems. This much is apparent at first glance – and when you open them and take a second look, so to speak, you discover so much more. These painted wooden containers guard secrets, preserve memories and provide space for treasured possessions. Your first movie theater ticket, snapshots from photo booths and even kitsch holiday souvenirs that bring back so many happy memories. Small mementos we pick up and look at from time to time that conjure up memories. Some happy, some sad, but always quite personal to us.

Award for World of Wendt & Kühn

Official certification as “especially family friendly”

In November 2017, the World of Wendt & Kühn was officially classified as “especially family friendly”. Our sales and exhibition area was checked out by an independent agency and passed the inspection with flying colors. The 50 criteria on which we were judged included hands-on activities suitable for children and safety precautions specific to our younger visitors – aspects which we consciously incorporated into the redesign of the World of Wendt & Kühn two years ago. The high standards we set ourselves at that time have now received official endorsement from Tourismus Marketing Gesellschaft Sachsen mbH (TMGS). With immediate effect, we will be displaying the “Familienurlaub in Sachsen” (Family Holiday in Saxony) plaque at the entry to the World of Wendt & Kühn, assuring visitors of a truly family-friendly experience.
