When you purchase a toy that carries the Plan Toys branding, you can rest assured that every single possible effort has been made to ensure that the toy has the least impact on the environment as possible. This was the ethos envisaged by seven university students in 1981 when Plan Toys was formed in Thailand. They have been designing and making beautiful wooden toys ever since. They have a truly fantastic range of toys, including animals, musical instruments, sand play, bath toys, vehicles and much much more. The most popular Plan Toy we sell is the sailing bath boat with a penguin as the captain (click here.)
Sustainable toy design and manufacture from Plan Toys
Plan Toys use Rubberwood from trees that have passed their rubber producing lives. This is such a great use of a resource as the tree has 2 uses. Better still, the tree is then replanted so it can be used for its rubber and wood once again. They have also found an ingenious use of the sawdust their factory creates too – they form it under high heat and pressure to produce further toys, like the penguin sailing boat mentioned above. If that wasn’t enough, the whole process is actually carbon positive and they actually sell electricity back to their national grid in their home country of Thailand. All this, we believe, makes Plan Toys the most sustainable toy company in the world.
They use water based organic pigments in their paints and also non-formaldehyde glue which they make themselves so they are 100% non toxic and comply with all worldwide toy standards. All the Plan Toys that we sell at Envirotoy are 100% plastic free and their new beautifully designed packaging is 100% recyclable. Since 2020 they use packaging that is made from old product boxes which the haven’t been able to use.
Plan Toys are about as sustainable as they come and that is the reason they were one of the brands we launched with at Envirotoy. We are delighted to have a great selection in stock – Animals, boats, construction blocks, push, pull – we have it all. We even have a doctor’s set! Delivery is free over £25 and returns are free within 30 days.
