Since 1981, PlanToys has embraced a sustainable mind to respect and preserve natural resources for future generations. For 38 years, we have believed that children are the real force behind this mission. Therefore, we intend to produce well-designed toys that help enhance the development of children from newborn age to 5 years old, as these first five formative years are absolutely critical for their growth.
We also strive to nurture them with the freedom of play and a closer relationship to nature. Meanwhile, we try to develop the safest processes and materials that cause minimal or no effects to our staff, consumers, the environment, and the planet.
We have gained recognition globally through our philosophies and beautifully-crafted & sustainable wooden-toys. With this said, we truly believe that we are helping to bring our motto, “Better Kids, Better World,” to life.
Why do you make sustainable toys and furniture for children?
It all started with the ambition to help make the world a better place. As children are our inspiration, we hope they will pass on this passion for sustainability from generation to generation. We want to reflect our ethical mind on children, who are the foundation of tomorrows. We believe that the best way for children to learn is through play. By playing with our sustainable toys, they will get hands-on experiences while having ultimate fun as well as developing a close relationship to nature.
What is special about your toys & small furniture for children?
We incorporate the concept of sustainability and child development in every single pieces of our products, both in a design and production process. All materials and manufacturing processes are friendly to our toy makers, children and the environment. The design of products are classic and can fit harmoniously in a house. With durable quality, our products can be passed on from generations to generations.
When and where was your company founded?
PlanToys is a Thai wooden toy brand under Plan Creations Co., Ltd. We started the company in 1981 in one of the countries in Southeast Asia – Thailand. Our headquarters office is in Bangkok while the PlanToys Factory is located in Trang, a province in Southern Thailand.
Where do you produce your sustainable toys & small furniture for children?
All products are manufactured in Trang, the province in Southern Thailand while our headquarters office is in Bangkok. We moved our factory there to save energy as 73% of the resources we use are from within a 30 km radius around our factory.
What do you do when you ARE NOT working?
We love to participate in sustainable-mind activities and projects to give back to the society. These include special toys for children with special needs project, food waste campaign as well as our own creative playhouse – PlanNeramit. With the company’s 40th anniversary coming up, we plan to open a play museum to provide children with immersive experiences from learn-through-play activities. We also naturally instill the concept of sustainability in our activities to nurture children.
