This is one of the trickiest parts of the party planning. You want something fun that the kids will enjoy playing with, something inexpensive, something that won’t break easily and something that is non toxic (to your child and the environment). Hmmm, where to start?
We have found a few really cool companies that produce quality products for inspiring and entertaining kids. Our wooden toy range made by Maple Landmark in the US, uses sustainably managed hardwood and child safe paints and finishes. The goodies include yo-yos, spinning tops, rattles, fairy wands, cars to make and decorate and cars to play with.
If it is pencils you are after, then look no further. We stock a great supply of top quality O’Bon recycled newspaper pencils. There is the Wildlife Twin Sets (pictured)or the 10 packs of Wildlife, Rainbow or Fruit series that can be divided up for 10 party favours.
O’Bon also produces A6 sized notebooks made from sugarcane pulp (called bagasse). Completely tree free and sustainably made. The left over waste from the sugarcane plant after juice extraction, is used to make the paper!
Organic cotton is a great fabric to use for babies toys. It is completely safe to chew on with no pesticide or chemical residue and lovely and soft to hold. We are happy to offer some of Under The Nile’s range of fair trade and certified organic cotton toys. These are 100% organic cotton, inside and out.
