Whoaaa what a start to the year! Thank you to everyone that visited us at Top Drawer, Spielwarenmesse and Spring Fair. We had an absolute blast meeting the most amazing retailers and showing our new products from PlanToys, MOLUK, Makii, Makedo and Scribble Down.
We are now back in the office and have itchy feet waiting for the next round of shows in the autumn. The new stock lands in our warehouse over the next few weeks and we will be in touch with you regarding deliveries. In the meantime, if you haven't checked it out yet, make sure you take a peek at our new 2019 catalogue and make sure you are signed up to our mailing list to receive all the updates :)

Have you seen the new PlanToys x Kromkommer Wonky Fruit & Vegetables Set?
The set has been produced in collaboration with Kromkommer to highlight the issue of food waste.
Why did we create these wonky fruit and vegetable toys?
About 10% of all fruit and vegetables are wasted simply because they aren’t pretty enough. Yet there’s nothing wrong with the taste. How twisted!
Kromkommer (a Dutch social enterprise) believes that we should embrace these perfectly imperfect fruit and vegetables. They should end up on our plates, rather than in the trash bin. To achieve this, we spread our love for wonky produce among as many people as possible. Kromkommer and PlanToys share a vision for a more sustainable world with less waste. By working together we developed this unique playset. With these toys,
children experience the beauty and diversity of wonky fruit and vegetables. This way we show them a less wasteful and more appetising future.
Kromkommer launched the wonky fruit and vegetable toys in the Netherlands with a successful pre-sale crowdfunding campaign. A total of 516 supporters contributed €21.043 to the crowdfunding, exceeding the financial goal! With so much enthusiasm for the product, Kromkommer & PlanToys successfully launched the toys. The impressive public response and unique product resulted in wide-spread media attention in the Netherlands.
The Wonky Fruit & Vegetable Set will launch in the UK and Ireland at Top Drawer this weekend, alongside more amazing NEW PlanToys lines.
We hope you filled up on mince pies and eggnog over the past few weeks, but it's time to get back at it and that means its show time!
As usual, we can't wait for a busy show season and look forward to seeing you all there! We have new products from PlanToys, MOLUK, Makii and Makedo.
We will be exhibiting at the following shows, get in touch with us to make an appointment!
