Made from the new collection of PlanWood materials, the classic Dancing Alligator has been remade using this new sustainable wood to delight children. When pulled along, the alligator moves his head and tail up and down making a click-clack sound. Created to maximize the usage of the reclaimed rubber trees, PlanWood uniquely provides an even safer, higher quality and more affordable product, while maintaining the eco-minded excellence and unforgettable design consumers have come to expect from the PlanToys brand. PlanWood is made from the sawdust and wood chips left over from regular PlanToys production. By adding some organic pigments for color, mixing it with less than 1% of their non-formaldehyde E-zero glue and pressure molding the mix, a new safe and non-toxic material was born.

 

PlanToys® has been committed to minimizing environmental impact for over thirty years. “For over 30 years, PlanToys has been recycling the wood from expired rubber wood trees to create beautiful wooden toys that inspire children’s imaginations and promote a commitment to sustainable play,” said Kosin Virapornsawan, President of PlanToys, Inc. “We are extremely excited and proud to offer families an even more durable and non-toxic product.” All PlanToys® products are made with safe, clean and eco-friendly materials. The culmination of PlanToys values equates to creating a healthy and happier world for all children through a firm commitment to a sustainable future. PlanToys® is introducing a new line of their beloved and sustainable toys just in time for Earth Day: PlanWood®. Created to maximize the usage of the reclaimed rubber trees, PlanWood uniquely provides an even safer, higher quality and more affordable product, while maintaining the eco-minded excellence and unforgettable design consumers have come to expect from the PlanToys brand. This year, PlanToys is proud to introduce a new material, PlanWood®. Created to maximize the usage of the reclaimed rubber trees, PlanWood uniquely provides an even safer, higher quality and more affordable product, while maintaining the eco-minded excellence and unforgettable design consumers have come to expect from the PlanToys brand. PlanWood® is made from the surplus sawdust and wood chips from production. By adding some organic pigments for color, mixing it with less than 1% of our non-formaldehyde E-zero glue, and pressure molding the mix, we created the safe and non-toxic PlanWood. PlanWood is a high density fiber, which is much stronger and more durable than medium density fiber (MDF). Its unmatched resilience enables each product to become a treasured play thing to pass down from generation to generation. With less than 5% moisture content, PlanWood is fungus-resistant. PlanWood is water and stain resistant, making it easy to clean when play time is over. The color of all PlanWood products is mixed in the material, while the color of regular rubber wood is painted on the outside. The PlanWood collection complements and enhances the existing PlanToys line of products with educational and stimulating toys for children ages 0-6. Each item from the PlanWood collection boasts a classic product remade using the PlanWood material. Each PlanWood product purchased is a contribution towards the goal of a sustainable world, something families can feel good about. Less energy is used to produce PlanWood and this ultimately reduces environmental impact. PlanToys has invested in the construction of Biomass Plant and Bio Energy Power Plant that uses tree by-products to generate electricity, an incredible sustainable achievement. All PlanWood and PlanToys products exceed the ASTM and EN-71 safety standards.
