PlanToys Sustainable Wooden Toys

plan-toys-heading-fw

We love PlanToys at Babipur, and their colourful eco toys have been on our shelves since 2009.  For over 30 years, PlanToys have been leading the way in making green and ethical toys that are hits with kids and parents alike.  If you’ve not come across the brand before, here’s everything you need to know about PlanToys.

Ethically Made and Eco-Friendly

Many companies crow about their green credentials, but for PlanToys, running a sustainable, environmentally-friendly business is more than just a marketing ploy.

plan-toys-rubber-trees-plan-wood-fw

PlanToys toys are ethically made in Thailand from natural rubber wood trees that no longer produce latex, they then strengthen the wood with their chemical-free kiln-drying process.  As well as solid wood toy they also make beautiful toys from their very own PlanWood, which is made from the 2 tons of sawdust that the toy factory produces daily.  This ensures they use every part of the rubberwood tree.

Rubberwood v Plan Wood

We love wooden toys at Babipur and we know our customers do too.  Solid rubberwood toys by Plan Toys have always flown off our shelves but we’re also loving new kid in town: Planwood.  Made from the waste sawdust and rubberwood off-cuts, their very own non-toxic glue and eco organic dye sall compressed under high pressure to bind it together.  Planwood is as green as green can be, super-solid and built to last.   Because the colour is added in the manufacturing process, no paint is needed so colour won’t flake off, making it a highly durable material that will stand up to being bashed around by little product testers.  Yes, it’s processed but there’s nothing plastic about Planwood and it’s good to know that when you buy a Planwood toy, you’re supporting a zero-waste toy manufacturing process.  Planwood toys are smooth to the touch but have a speckled appearance from all of the tiny pieces of sawdust that have gone into them.

Take a look at these two toys: the Planwood Dancing Alligator on the left and the iconic Solid Dancing Alligator on the right. Both will delight small children who will love to watch them wiggle along when pulled across the floor.  Each will make the perfect pal for your little adventurer, but which material will you choose? There’s even a limited edition rainbow version, which is a colourful take on the classic toy.  Suitable from age 1.

Safe and Sustainable Materials

eco-glues-and-paints-fw

Not satisfied with glues available on the market, PlanToys have developed their very own certified E-zero Non-Formaldehyde glue.  All their dyes are waterbased using non-formaldehyde organic colour pigments.  Even their labels and packaging are printed on recycled paper using soy ink.

Sustainable and Safe Toy Manufacturing

plan-toys-sustainable-manufacturing-fw

PlanToys are a carbon neutral company and they have such a positive affect on the local comunity.  Their Biomass generator not only produces electricity for the whole factory it also provides enough for the villages around the PlanToys factory too!

Socially Responsible Toy Maker

plan-toys-socially-responsible-fw

Each year, 10,000 children visit the Plan Toys factory to learn about sustainability.  Many toys are hand-sanded by visually impaired people and, to celebrate its 30th anniversary, Plan Toys worked with mothers of children with autism, cerebral palsy and visual impairments to design toys that that can make a real difference to their children’s lives. The PlanToys Children and Comunity Club is a wonderful project that gives local children and the children of PlanToys employees the chance to take part in lots of activities during school holidays.

Fun Wooden Toys Your Child Will Love

Being eco and educational doesn’t mean boring – children of all ages will love Plan Toys.  Whether you’re after a stimulating rattle, a baby walker, stacking toys, building blocks, pull-along animals, play kitchens, dolls’ houses, puzzles, educational toys, family games, musical instruments or toy cars, Plan Toys have the lot – and it’s all in store at Babi Pur.  If you haven’t anything in your toy box from Plan Toys, now is the time to break the piggy bank (and replace it with a new Plan Toys piggy bank!) as there are a whole load of new and exciting goodies available, as well as a heap of classic toys.  Here are some of our favourites from the Plan Toys range.

Plan Toys Bee Hives

There’s a real buzz around this colour sorting toy among Babipur customers.  Children will have to concentrate to pick up the coloured bees and put them back into their right hive, or mix the colours up.  This is a great wooden toy for learning colours, encouraging kids to take turns and also promoting the skills needed to hold a pen. Suitable from age 3.

Plan Toys Sort & Count Cups

It’s a fab open-ended toy for creative play. Suitable from 18 months+.

Plan Toys Cone Sorting

Suitable from 18 months+.

Plan Toys Bird Walker

Suitable from 10 months+.

Plan Toys Wooden Parking Garage

plan-toys-garage-fw

Plan Toys Green Dolls’ House7156-green-dolls-house-furniture

Green parents will love this new eco dolls’ house.  Not only is it made from sustainable rubberwood but it’s a fantastic way to teach children about green living, thanks to its wind turbine, solar panels and recycling bins. A wooden dolls’ house is a classic present that imaginative children will enjoy for years to come. It’s huge! See it in action here. Suitable from age 3.

The amount of work that goes into designing the toys and tools that make them is incredible.  Check out this video showing the manufacturing process for a Plan Toys Chicken Racer.

  17. We love Plan toys in this house and have had them as simple, quality toys since before I made a conscious choice to look for ethical toys. Our current favourite is the fairytale castle blocks, but we have the bee hives coming for Christmas and the Santa house arriving as an advent present, so we may find some new favourites soon.

  18. We love plan toys & great to read how they are made! Have been looking at the sorting toy for little one & have already got a plan toys stacking toy & pull along doggy! They are fab! X

  19. Interesting to learn how these are made as always wondered about the fleck in the material. Love how the colour doesn’t rub off like other wooden toys and how hard wearing they are. The sorting cups are our favourite at the moment as teaching the eldest to count, the middle child colours and the youngest how to build towers

  20. We love plan toys we have got the helicopter and London vehicle set for my bus and helicopter mad little man for Christmas would love some more they are stunning

  21. Can’t wait for my little girl to be old enough to play with the Plan Toys. She will get the alligator for her first birthday as I hear it’s a favourite for many.

  22. This has only made me want to buy more Plan toys! So interesting to learn more about how they are made, thanks for sharing 😀

  23. Oh these look lovely. So bright and colourful. Love the alligator. Will be buying this when my baby is a bit older.

  25. Love plan toys but I didn’t know about the PlanWood, brilliant use of all the tree, now even more delighted with the rainbow alligator my daughter’s Christmas present.

  26. Plan toys are so durable. We have some Plan wooden kitchen utensils that are played with every day and are still going strong after 3 years!

  27. Love the look and feel of Plan Toys, we’ve currently got the pull along animal train and the nesting chickens which my little boy loves. I’ve also got him the sort and count cups for Christmas. Will be adding a few more bits from this post (the bees are a definite) to our wishlist for his birthday in March 😊

  28. I love the planwood, it’s durable and colourful like plastic but much better! My little boy loves the sort and count cups and asks to play with them daily. We also have a great little numbers game by plan which has planwood numbers which are lovely and tactile.

  29. I absolutely adore plan toys. They are so pretty and made to last!!! The fact that they are made ethically is an added bonus. Most of my toddlers Christmas stash consists of plan toys!! I personally can’t wait to play with them…. I mean let him play with them….lol. Looking forward to beehives the most I think xxx

  30. Love this brand, love them even more learning a bit more about their ethics, if only more companies were are responsible. I have a few of their products for my daughter and lots more on our wishlist!

  31. Absolutely in love with plan toys. Since being introduced to babipur I have purchased a few plan items through them. Also it had opened my eyes to types of toys/games that we have for our little boy. I am now a bit of a fuss pot “according to my parents ” when it comes to toys/gifts. 😊

  32. Santa is bring my three year old the beehives and I cannot wait. Had a little peak in the box and they are fabulous, superb quality, super bright colours and perfect for developing her grasping skills as she starts to learn how to write numbers letters.

  33. I like plan toys but I’m going to be honest and say I didn’t realise they did all this! The eco dolls house is pure genius, it’s great to teach through play!

  34. I have recently discovered PlanToys and have to say they are already a favourite (without having yet played with them!). Love the fact they are sustainable and the whole thing is beneficial in some way. Really love the PlanWorld stuff so that will be birthdays sorted next year!

  35. Fascinating!
    I have the First Shape Sorter for my LO for Christmas, love the feel of the wood! I’ll definitely be buying more Plan Toys!

  36. We really like plan toys they’re just so gorgeous and bright. Can’t wait to give my smallest his new plan vehicles at Christmas.

  37. These are my favourite wooden toys yet! 😍 they are so well made and ethically sound. My girl and nieces have loads of them ready for christmas ☺️

  38. Love love LOVE plan toys!!! Most recent purchase was the bath floating island. It is completely loved by both my 2 year old & 8 year old. They can really engage and play so nicely with it together, it keeps them amused for ages!! You can really feel the quality 🙂

  39. Wow, I’m only just starting with our love of ethical wooden toys and im addicted already, my daughter would love the dolls house and the garage would be Wonderful for my son and daughter to play with. x

  40. I love the ingenuity of plan wood. Such a great way to use waste products. Plan has definitely become our favourite toy brand. I love the look of the new dolls house.

  41. I love hearing how products are made by a company – makes me feel connected to them. I got my first Plan Toys item in a mystery box and it is so well made. I can’t wait for my baby to arrive so I can buy more from Plan Toys, especially now I know how they are made.

  42. We are very new to plan toys, but in our house we love how sturdy they are and how many different ways you can play! It’s fascinating to know how they are made and wonderful to support an ethical company. x

  43. Such lovely toys. Everything about them makes you want to play with them, the texture, the colour, the shapes 🙂 Just amazing quality too

  44. We love plan toys here. One of our favourites is the marble run. It’s beautiful, robust and fun! It makes the most lovely sound when the marbles run down! The crocodile and bee hives are also firm favourites that my toddler still comes back to again and again! I love that they are beautiful, ethical and reasonably priced toys.

  45. Love love love this brand! The toys are beautiful, so well made and double up as essential teaching aids. I’m constantly adding to the wishlist for our growing collection.

  46. We have the sort and count bowls and the mushroom kaleidoscopes. We love the colours and textures of the materials used and love the fact that they are ethical and eco friendly. Our wish list has many more Plan Toys on it.

  47. I will be honest, never heard of plan toys, I’ve seen the bees (LOVE THEM) and that’s about it. Looking at what’s available, I want it all! I want to up my wooden toys and reduce the plastic and it’s always so hard to find. Now I know where to come to do so. Going to order my boy something right now and can see this being my new ‘investment’

  48. I love all of our Plan toys. The ones made from Plan wood in particular are beautiful. My favourite is the ludo which everyone should own. The hardest decision is choosing which piece to play as…penguin or polar bear!

  49. We have quite a few Plan toys and we’ll definitely be buying more. The textures are lovely and they’re really well thought out and well made as well as being rebust and good value.

  50. Brilliant article, genuinly fascinated by, and in love with the whole ethos and manufacturing process of the company. Have been googling to see if the regular public can visit the factory for when we go to Thailand for my friend’s wedding next year! Would love to take my girls to show them where their toys come from and how they’re made.
    Thanks for teaching me more about Plan Toys Babipur! They’re definitely on our wishlist.

  51. We loves our plan B toys. We have the crocodile and he came on today with us. My daughter was so happy walking through the airport bringing him along

  52. We love plan toys anyway but even more so after reading this. I knew they were ethical but didn’t realise quite the lengths they go to. My 1 year old loves pulling his alligator along pretending he’s going to eat his toes and it makes the loveliest noise! We also have the bee hives stashed away for Christmas for my 3 year old. My wish list is currently full of plan toys, deciding which to buy first is the hardest!

  53. We love Plan Toys – my little girl always makes a beeline for the dancing alligator at our local toddler group. The quality and design are fantastic, and to know that they are such an ethical company is wonderful.

  54. Brilliant article, it’s so easy to be lazy nowadays I’m glad I was pointed to this – as even though I look for green toys I don’t always look into them enough and will try my best to do so from now on. Only have a couple of bits from plan toys but trying to destash and get better quality

  55. We received our first plantoy (train station)in our mystery box which is put away for my son xmas.we are going for a more ethical xmas this year and I have a shopping list as long as my arm of plantoys that I(my son)would love.x

  56. We purchased our first Plan Toy 5 years ago and it is still beautiful and strong despite passing through the test of being played constantly by three boys. After that we just increased the collection and not just our own kids but also guests love them. The designs, quality, beauty and ethical core of the company are very appealing and worth of our money and children’s play time.

  57. We love the Plan Toys, and have quite a few, and it’s great to know they’re such an environmentally conscious company. Our favorite is probably the bee hives, but the fire truck, helicopter, and ambulance are really fun too.

  58. We love the plan toys. We have a few for our children and they have had and fair amount of use and still look like new, the quality is second to none.

  59. Wow really interesting and eye opening reading about how the plan toys are made. I am very impressed by the planwood they create from the sawdust. Fantastic way of reducing wastage. The toys are all so lovely I wouldn’t know what to get for my girls first.

  60. We love plan toys in our house. They are so hard-wearing, versatile and well made its just amazing they are ethically made too!! My Lissy loves the shape sorter. They are truly gorgeous toys!

  61. I’m SO looking forward to recieving my clickity-clack pull along crocodile. I researched heavily and found it to be one of the most highly recommended and most loved/returned to, pull along toy by children.

  62. A friend of mine has one of the dolls houses and I’ve had an eye on them over since. Great to know they are such a sustainable company too.

  63. My 2 year old loves bright colours and rainbows. This lead me to plan toys, he’ll have a stocking full of bright coloured exciting toys on Christmas morning, one very happy boy!!

  64. I am a massive fan of plan toys! I’ve got my eye on the sort and count bowls and the bees for when my 14month old gets a little bit older!
    I loved reading how the toys are made, I didn’t realise that all parts of the trees are utilised to such an extent! Amazing!

  65. We are plan virgins, this blog has just ment I now have to go buy some, how did I not know about this great product I have 4 children, all that wasted time I now have to make up. I’m off to look at that Croc for my two littlest.

  66. I had no idea about the plan toys company other than they make beautiful toys! It’s great to read that they are such a community minded company and how much they value the ideas of their customers including those with SEN. I have bought the beehives for do for Christmas (can’t wait to open them!) And have the bird tower and stacking zoo toys on my wish list. Think I’ll have to put the stacking cone and sorting cups on my wish list after seeing this!

    Another interesting and informative blog, thank you x

  67. Love that what would otherwise have become waste has been turned into something so beautiful! The plan wood looks so warm and tactile.

  68. Lots of Plan Toys on our wish list! If we are lucky Santa might be bringing a few 😉 Great to buy from such an ethical company too

  69. Bought our first plan toy a while back when it was on offer..have fallen in love since. Such great quality and its amazing to know they are ethically made! Have a huge wish list for xmas 🙂

  70. My 2 year old absolutely loves the dolphin whistle, he can spend ages just happily blowing a tune and laughing at how much fun it is! He’s a huge fan of the fire engine and the car park too which luckily our family have to entertain him at their houses. The toys are all well made and it’s reassuring to know that they are from a very sustainable company too.

  71. The pecking bird walker brough a smile to my face 😆 I’d also like to move into the Green Dolls House! Keep up the good work Plan Toys!

  72. I love the look of all the plan toys and it’s great to know how they are made! I especially love the bees, we don’t have any plan toys yet but I’m hoping the bees will be the first of many to move in!!

  73. I adore plan toys! I love how they have the option of wood – and then the further planwood option is fantastic! They are so transparent about how they work and i love that about the company. I know exactly what im buying. My toddler adores all the plan toys weve bought so far, and i know him and his little brother will love the ones we have hidden away for christmas too! Our firm favourites are the whale, dolphin, and stingray whistles – endles hours of fun from something so simple.

  74. Love Plan toys, we can’t wait to open up the beehives on christmas day! Fantastic range of top quality toys.

  75. I love the background information and really appreciate how the colour is added during manufacturing so that there is no paint to flake. The colours are so lovely and vibrant, it’s reassuring to know they are also robust. My daughter loves her crocodile! I think she would go mad for the bees.

  76. We love our bees, chopping vegetables, sealife animal whistles and plan toys eggs. We love that they are bright, fun and engaging for our daughters but also that they wonderfully ethical. These are not just toys to us, they have played a part in many memories of our children through the last few years, and will most likely be kept, for their children. The quality is excellent.

  77. We love their toys here in this house right from baby toys through to toys for my 5 year old. I had no idea they were as ethical as they are. Impressive and interesting to read about. Bees are on our Christmas list this year.

  78. Wow! Love reading about how the toys are made, and I love love love this company’s ethos. If only more of the world worked this way. Beautiful toys. It’s a company I certainly won’t overlook from now on. X

  79. Love PlanToys here. Look forward to getting the little people dolls at some point and the infamous bees when daughter is a bit older.

  80. I didn’t know much about planwood but I’m very impressed I actually prefer the colourful alligator and I think the sorting bowls are on the list as well. I’ve had bee envy with those hives and they’re going to be an unexpected gift for my 3year old. To be fair I want all the plan toys as they’re all awesome but to know you are supporting a fantastic company in the process is the cherry on top

  81. Plan toys have such experience and heritage in providing toys that are ethically and imaginatively sound. We have had them in our lives for a longtime and expect them to be handed down to the new generation with joy.

  82. I love Plan so much. Their toys are so beautifully made and so appealing. Current favourites of my 2 year old are the bees and the cutting fruit, but we have the fridge and garage to come at Christmas so that may change!

  83. Far too many beautiful toys 😍 I have the beehives and the balancing boat stashed for Christmas! I can’t wait to get the sorting cups when my little man is a bit bigger I love them ❤️

  84. Would love the bees they are gorgeous and the bird balancing tree looks very funny too. Such tactile toys that cry out to be played with

  85. Colours are amazing and all of the toys seem robust enough even for smaller kids.
    My lo is 5m old atm, can’t wait for her to get just sad bit bigger- I’m working in the shopping list!

  86. We love plan toys! Our 1 year old’s favourite at the moment is the camera, it’s brilliant and she loves pretending to take pictures with it!

  87. These toys are great! My sons favourite toy for at least the past year has been the ‘clattigator’ as we call it, also known as the dancing alligator. There’s such a huge range, my collection slowly grows each month 😬

  88. I love the look of these toys and can’t wait to buy some for my niece when I get paid. And the fact they’re so ethically made is fab.

  89. We love plantoys here, the quality is brilliant. The kids particularly enjoy the Plan wood alligator so it was interesting reading how it was made.

  90. I don’t think you’re ever too old for plan toys. My 2,8and 10 year old would find mutual play within these toys. We love them all 😍

  91. My eldest adored his sorting train. It’s actually in the attic, will have to find it for my toddlers to play with! I love the bees and the set of dinosaurs, the nature set, all the sets are lovely actually. I love that they use up all the sawdust too, what a great idea!

  92. I’m pretty new to the world of ethical toys having had my first child just under 2 years ago. I’ve been reading up a lot about plan toys and I have to say they are now a real firm favourite in our house. Each piece is beautifully crafted and I love the uniqueness of the plan wood and that in certain lights it looks almost glittery with the dappled paint effect.
    I also believe that plan toys are not just for children, I must admit to having bought santas house and the gingerbread house for myself to add to my Christmas decs.

  93. I’d wondered what the plastic-like material was–so interesting to know more about Planwood! I love the rainbow alligator–I have something new to add to my wish list!

  94. These all look so beautiful! Would love the crocodile, he looks so cute! My children would have so much fun with the bees too.

  95. Love, love, love plantoys products! So well made and my little one plays for hours. One of my favourite toy brands! 🙂

  96. I’m so glad I found Babi Pur, they have introduced me to so many new things. Plan toys are definitely one of favourite, there is such a variety of toys that are both educational and fun, learning without even knowing it! Amazing! 🙂 the bees and hives are beyond cute.

  97. I wish I’d found Babi pur and plain toys sooner I just love them and wish I could have had them with my twin boys. Now I have an excuse though as my new son came into the world seven weeks ago.

  98. We have a few plan toys, and I love the plan wood especially, the texture of it is lovely, and it’s so robust. My wishlist is growing after reading this!

  99. Plan toys are 100% my favourite brand right now!
    I adore the planwood, also the price really appeals to me. As much as I love other wooden toy brands, cost is a factor for us and plantoys are much more affordable.
    My boys have a lovely plantoys collection coming for christmas! Including walking cups, penguin boat bath toy, sort and count cups.
    Desperate for the bees but will wait until my youngest turns 2!

  100. I found this really interesting! I wasn’t aware that plan toys made planwood from sawdust etc (recently bought a few Dino cars for a friend, did notice they were speckled but didn’t think why! – they are so lovely and solid, I actually begrudged giving them to the one year old birthday boy lol!) It’s really good to be able to track their making process, and how as a company they help the community. I feel like I need to treat myself, I mean my daughter, to some plan toys! I also showed my Grand Designs loving husband the dolls house and he loved it, so I may be on to a winner!

  101. I love how all the custom jigs and stuff in the plan factory are also made out of wood :-p we love our plan toys, especially the plan wood ones, they’re pretty much indestructible ( in kid terms at least ) and love their unpainted/textured finish

  102. So interesting to learn about Plan Toys! Lots of things I never knew or would even have thought about. We absolutely love our clickety-clackety crocodile! I’m desperate to buy the car garage for my daughter – think she’d have hours of fun!

  103. We love plan toys, definitely one of our go to brands. My little one’s favourite and most used toy is his plan toys drum. He has hours of fun with it! Now to decide what other plan toys to add to our wish list… x

  104. Really looking forward to my little ones opening some of their plan toys they’ve got for Christmas. 🌟

  105. We have the plan weather dress up puzzles and I keep finding new ways of playing with them (and I’m not very creative, they tell you the ways!) but they’ve made a lot out of a deceptively simple toy.

  106. Found this really interesting love plan toys have a few things put away for Christmas, and a few more on the list for my little boys birthday coming up 😊 Love the fact that nothing goes to waste when making these beautiful toys.

  107. Wow – we’ve loved plan toys since we saw them in person but it’s so great to read how awesome they are too. We already have the dancing alligator and push along dinosaurs but the plan eggs are on the list for after Christmas!

  108. Our 2 year old son had the beehives for his birthday and they are a firm favourite. I thought he would struggle with the tongs but he has learnt to use them very quickly and loves to count the bees in to and out of their hives. We also have the plan camping set which is absolutely adorable! I can see these toys being handed down the generations.

  109. My 2 year old loves his sort and count cups more than any other toy. They are beautifully made, bright, colorful and so engaging to play with.

  110. The “green” dolls house looks incredible! What a fantastic way to start them on a green path too. Love the look of the bees for when my little one is a little bit older. Thanks for another great blog!

  111. Fab read, makes me love plan toys even more. Cant wait for my latest order to arrive of the sorting & counting cups for my little one 🙂

  112. We love the plan wood submarine we got its so cute and I love that the scuba diver comes out (and that they have a little air tank on their back) my daughter loves putting it back in the hole. She also loves spinning the rudder aswell. Their toys are so engaging and every detail is perfect!

  113. Plan Toys have been a favourite in our house since the arrival of our first, even before I started to consciously use ethical companies. They’re first and foremost brilliant toys! I love the range and there will be a few of their products under the tree this year (the little penguin and boat, the stacking tree) – and on wish lists for years to come (love the look of the cups and counters, the floating island and the bee hives).

  114. So great to learn more about plan I knew they were an eco brand so it’s nice to hear about I the other great things they do too! I love the bees! And the balancing bird tree both are on my kids Christmas present list. One she already has and adores is a lovely little submarine bath toy!

  115. Am I too old to have the green dolls house for myself?! I love how these toys are made and it’s made my mind up on the garage now I know how it is made. This is awesome

  116. We have a few Plan toys stashed for Christmas. Can’t wait to have a play with them. The way they are made with minimal waste is amazing!

  117. What is not to love about Plan toys 😍 Every single toy is just so beautiful! They’re by far my favourite toy brand and seeing how they work and how to hey make they toys is fantastic!!
