The Better Toy Store – Educational, Beautiful, Safe and Environment-friendly Toys
The Better Toy Store, initially known as The Original Toy Store back in 1987 started as a tiny store that made sustainability its foundation and good design its cornerstone.
In 2004, to better communicate our brand, we renamed themselves to prove that their toys are simply, better.
Wood is chosen over plastic during the manufacturing of their products wherever possible, as most plastics are made from non-renewable petrochemicals and are non-biodegradable. However, in some circumstances, plastic is use as necessitate material for products such as, water play toys or high detail figurines. Even then, all these plastic toys must be certified phthalate-free.
The wood use by their toymaker are from 2 main sources: One is from rubber trees that have exhausted their latex, and will be recycled to manufacture toys and furniture. The other is from managed forests in Europe where there is strong tradition of sustainable forestry. These European manufacturers only use wood that is PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified.
Only Educational, Beautiful, Safe and Environment-friendly Toys are chosen for the safety of the child and the environment.
