"Tillions" was designed by Helen Baron, who is a potter, mosaicist and tile maker.
Tillions originated as a series of tessellating four inch clay tiles which Helen made in joining designs which then combined in countless ways to make new patterns. It was while arranging these into endlessly varied patterns that she thought the idea might convert to an appealing new toy/game. She then created the designs for the magnet tillions. There are now over seventy registered designs for tillions, so more will be coming out in due course.
The magnet tillions are printed on a flexible magnetic material. They are made in Oxfordshire, UK by a leading manufacturer of magnetic products. The boxes and inserts are handmade in Bradford, UK
