PlanToys are one of my favorite brand of toys. Wooden, classic, eco-friendly and loads of fun. I love PlanToys because not only are they made with safe, eco-friendly materials, but the toys are timeless, encourage imaginative play, are non-toxic and did I mention that they do not require batteries! PlanToys are beautifully made toys that I don't have to hide away in the toy chest. I don't have to worry about toxic chemicals, lead paints, or adding another plastic toy to the planet. PlanToys® is not only well-known for being the first company in the world to manufacture wooden toys from preservative-free rubberwood, it is one of the leading company to create new material and process to minimize waste up to zero.
The newest addition to PlanToys product line are PlanWood, toys made from the rubberwood sawdust created by the manufacturing of other items by PlanToys. These toys include everything from play food to baby toys. PlanToys has several new toys in this uber "green" line including a Playhouse, Road and Rail Set, Chalet Dollhouse and Musical Band.
The Playhouse is simply adorable. It has three floors and comes complete with furniture and two figures. There is also a two-sided playmat that can be used as a wall and roof or a lovely garden. I love that the kids can easily take it from one room to the next. It's light while still being sturdy, is durable and doens't give off that noxious "new toy" odor. (minimal assembly required)
Another favorite is the parking garage. It also has three fun filled floors on which to play. The kids love the moving elevator tower and have constructed "helicopters" to land on the helipad. The set also comes with a little figure, car, gas station and a car wash. It feels good to give my children a toy to play with that I know is safe for them, minimally impacted the environment and will last for years to come.
