Eco - making kits review...

Lets talk about Eco-toy products, in recent years this has become a hot topic in the toy world, making products more environmentally friendly and using more conscientious materials to make toys. With consumers increasingly looking for more proof that the products they purchase are more sustainable many toy brands are taking to using social media to announce this to their followers. 

Historically, cost has been a deterrent to adopting sustainable practices, but even that is changing. New technologies are making sustainable materials more affordable and accessible. One example is bioplastics made from renewable resources. According to Dublin-based Research and Markets, the use of bioplastics is set to soar—even though the material is more expensive—because it’s cost-efficient to use, requiring 65% less energy to manufacture than conventional plastic. And the market research firm predicts that continued R&D will result in further cost reductions over time. Meanwhile, ongoing conversations with marketers and consumers indicate they’re willing to spend a bit more on products that reflect their values.

So lets talk about the products and explore the ethics and ideas behind them.

Green creativity has created a papermaking bead kit, which initially comes with a variety of paper to use but you can pretty much use any scrap paper that is lying around to create beautiful bespoke beads. Which in turn can be made into jewelry. Offering multifunctionality in one product. The other great thing about this is that it engages your littles ones creative thinking and awareness, as well as STEM activities. Talking about STEM activities there are many different science kits out there for kids and we stock a huge range of them but ones that stand out for their natural sustainability are Green Science Potato clock, this kit not only encourages scientific learning about how things work, if offers a sustainable approach to that learning, with potato’s as the main ingredient. Another great produce by Green Science is the Grow a maze, powered by your design this simple kit teaches kids how to grow plants and also its their design that the plant will grow through. 

Bamboo has become a great by product for making toys, currently Flexistix have created a kit that teaches your child about landmarks around the world but it also encourages motor skills to construct the Eiffel tower. The Flexistix are made from bamboo with silicone joiners to hold the construction in place. It also offers versatility in that you can make a design up yourself.  Nebulas stars have created a kit making wind chimes out of bamboo. Again its multifunctional allowing you to be creative with the painting and construction and uses sustainable products. 

The latest new product trending is the Selfie Craft kit, a British design concept created by two parents whom wanted to combine their love of arts and crafts with their kids. There are several kits on offer from hats, capes, t-shirts, the idea is that you use templates provided and create your own designs. The items of clothing come in sustainable cardboard packaging, the fabric used are sourced in the UK and made from sustainable cotton, the concept plays on the idea of mini eco warriors, making your child aware of the environment they are in. Also giving them creative freedom to make a item of clothing they will be proud to wear.

As the toy industry focuses more on innovative sustainable products and more open-mindedness to their consumers, creating space for a more valued toy with a deeper ethos behind it.
