At Babipur, we’ve been selling fair trade, ethical, eco toys made from sustainable wood and organic cotton since 2007 but we’ve recently been buzzing about Waldorf toys – but just what makes a toy a Waldorf toy?
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.
Christmas is a magical time of year, and even more so when there’s a new member of the family to celebrate with. At Babi Pur, we have everything you need to make baby’s first Christmas extra special. From festive cloth nappies, organic clothing and pram shoes to cute rattles and teethers, it’s all covered – even the stocking to squeeze it all into. Here are our top ten buys for baby’s first Christmas:
“Wooden bath toys? Are you kidding?”
We kid you not, Plan Toys have launched a new range of wooden bath toys and they’ve just landed her at Babi Pur Towers. They’re all coated with a waterproof finish which is what makes them perfect for bath time. Maybe even the paddling pool (fingers cross the Great British weather shows us some sun again this summer)!
“We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine” – This song has been stuck in my head since the moment I saw this wonderful little toy! Pop the explorer in his seat and use the rubber propeller to dive deep down into the depths of the sea.
Speed across the water in this awesome green speed boat.
With a life guard appropriately dressed in a life jacket, you’re ready to come to everyone’s rescue in the bright red coast guard boat. Wearing a life jacket (safety first!), there’s a life guard who can be lifted out of the seat.
Go fishing in this wonderful boat. With a fishing hook on the back of the boat what will be your catch of the day? A fish? Starfish? You may even be lucky enough to find a turtle!
Discover different flows of water with this water landing set. Pass the water between two bowls (watch out, the water escapes from the blue one!) and scoop up the sea animals with the net.
Watch the sea creatures fill up with water and sink to the bottom of the bath or float them on the water surface. Either way, your little one is sure to be entertained and will look forward to bath time!
Why Plan Toys? Well, they using chemical free, kiln dried wood taken from the exhausted rubber tree that would otherwise be burnt. They use non-flammable, non-toxic glue on all their wooden products and use water based paint dyes. The Plan Toys factory uses solar power and biomass energy.
Plan Toys make some of the best wooden toys around using green materials and green manufacturing methods. The fantastic Plan Toys Parking Garage and Plan City range is so much fun, I just want to get down on my hands and knees, with the kids of course, and play with the little cars, arrange them in the garage lift and whiz them around the 3 parking garage floors! If you’re a kid at heart (like me) you’ll understand why the range is so popular! Children aren’t gentle with their toys, they want to ‘play’ with them and these toys really are built to last! They’re solid and sturdy and for this reason they are a firm favourite with nurseries, playgroups and parents.
At Babi Pur we already sell the Parking Garage at just £49.99 and in addition we have put together some Plan Toys Parking Garage Saver Packs which includes some of the more popular city items at reduced prices so you can save even more. The Helicopter is nice to have because the garage has a helipad on the roof, the transporter is great value with a truck and two cars and everyone loves the little beetle retro cars II
The little vehicles from the Plan Toys City range really wizz across hard surfaces. Loads of fun for all the family.
The green stuff Plan toys use kiln dried chemical free rubber wood from exhuasted rubber plantations which would otherwise be burnt. They have developed their own e-zero non toxic glue which is used in all their wood products. Colours and paints are waterbased and non toxic. Recycled materials are widely used and packaging is printed with soya ink. The Plan Toys factory uses solar power and biomass energy.
Fair Trade stuff It’s clear that Plan Toys a passionate about being ethical. SA8000 social accountability management ensures full and equal opportunity for all workers. Plan Toys are proudly made in Thailand.
Plan Toys lead the way in ethical and green manufacturing and their passion really shows in the final product. If only all toy manufacturers thought like this….
Listen up folks! This aint your average backstreet market sale, these are quality wooden and eco toys from our favourite brands like Plan Toys and I’m Toy. We’ve brought you some fantastic prices on some of our most popular toys and some limited stock special offers. When they’re gone, they really are gone! My favourite has to be the Build ‘n Roll marble run which is a pretty substantial piece of kit and the bits all interchange with the plan construction kits too (also on offer). Plan Toys road systems won’t be available to buy in the UK soon which is a real shame but that means we’ve got some fantastic prices on Plan road and rail, , in particular the road system deluxe stands out for me. Oh I wish I was a little boy again 🙂
There’s lots of toys for £10 and under so if you’re looking for some little gifts then have a browse.
