What’s so special about Plan Toys?
Plan Toys believes that parents should encourage children to experience freedom when playing in nature, especially during their first five formative years. That’s why they focus on the production of safe wooden toys made of reclaimed rubber woods. Apart from the sustainable rubber wood, it’s very special that they’re using wooden leftovers for further production. This is why some items in their collections look like they’re made of pressed, recycled materials. But no matter if they’re made of regular rubber wood or pressed rubber wood, the materials are very solid and safe for kids to play with indoors and outdoors.

To help kids develop during their first five formative years, Plan Toys focuses on the production of the following toys: Furniture items (like little tables, chairs or toys chests), mini items to carry along, baby items to help physical development, aquatic toys and active play toys (like kitchen items and push-and-pull toys). You can find all collections at Akomo Kids, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if something is missing or if you have any questions.

Plan Toys: durable lovely toys
The company Plan Toys is part of the international Plan Group, which supports charities that emphasise on an ecological approach, fair trade and respect for the planet. For example the wood comes from old rubber trees that are no longer useful for the production or rubber. What would otherwise be rubbish, is bought and efficiently recycled. The latex that the tree produces is used at home for other rubber parts. Most important is that it gives us responsible materials. Well, it’s a collection of wonderful toys. With craftly shapes and nice, bright colours.
Baby, toddler and preschooler?
Their toys come in all categories, divided over several phases in the development of your child. That’s how babies between 0 and 6 months first discover their most important muscles and learn how to control them. Simple, beautifully made rattles are perfect for that. In the vision of Plan Toys another kind of toy fits toddlers up till 3 years old. There’s a range of largely wooden musical instruments that toddlers like a lot. A nice example on the use of natural rubber is the road and rail starter set. Smart, flexible pieces of road that form a racetrack. You can play with them indoors and outdoors, perhaps even on the beach?
A lot to choose
There is a very broad collection of especially active toys, because that’s what it’s all about at Plan Toys. Children can start playing. Also the nice furniture pieces look very inviting to play with. Cool cars, a truck that we would like to have had ourselves, and what about those nice rocking horses? Everything is beautiful, artisanal, with a colourful tough look. Apart from the recycled wood of rubber trees, plate material of the Plan Group is added too. This is made of production leftovers and other wooden material, so the cycle is closed. Take a look, because there’s a lot of choice. All the toys are made according to the highest safety standards.
