We diligently and constantly search for sustainable materials that meet our needs to protect everyone involved. As a result, PlanToys became the first company in the world to manufacture toys from rubberwood. However, we never cut down a single tree for production. Instead, we take piles of rubberwood from rubber trees that no longer produce latex, normally scheduled to be burned, to make toys for children. All materials used, from the product itself to our packaging, are safe and sustainable. We use organic pigments, water-based dyes and non-formaldehyde glue for our toys, while using eco-fibre paper and soy ink for printed materials. Additionally, 73% of the resources we use are from within a 30 km radius around our factory, located in the Southern Province of Trang, Thailand, to reduce energy consumption.

This year, we are excited to bring you the official launch of our new sustainable material, natural rubber! We have now achieved our goal of utilizing every part of the rubber tree. From latex to branches, everything is valuable to us. Our Research & Development team has been researching and experimenting with various formulae before discovering the safest material for our children, toy makers, and the environment. We are aware of children’s behaviors, knowing that they love exploring and discovering new things around them. Therefore, we make safety our top priority.

Our rubber toys are made of 100% natural rubber. Every single drop of milky fluid is harvested from Hevea or rubber trees in Trang Province, Thailand. As well as giving us a great opportunity to provide local neighbours with employment opportunities, we can also add even more value to the rubber trees!

Not only are we concerned about safety, but we also take a child’s development into consideration. Natural rubber helps stimulate tactile skills for children as they experience all different types of surfaces whether they are rubber, wood, or fabric. We see how important play is and want to provide children with the ultimate fun; therefore, our products are made to suit to all weather conditions and children can enjoy playing with them both outdoors and indoors!
