The manufacture of Ralf Zenker, in the famous toy village in Seiffen, is famous for its cute snowmen, made from turned balls. The manufactory was founded in 1990 by Volker Zenker, who at that time still focused on candlesticks and classic snowmen. In 2002, the first designs of a very special genre were created - the Zenker snowman from turned balls was brought to life and the little figures soon became very popular. The company's trademark also remains the decorated tea and candle holders, as well as other Christmas decorations such as Christmas tree ornaments and pyramids. Meanwhile, the range also includes general decorative items such as flower children, beetles, mice and Easter bunnies in colorful variations. The management of the company has been in the hands of Volker's son Ralf Zenker since 2017.
