Toys - BIOBUDDI
This Netherlands based company doesn't necessarily think we need to change the toys available for our children to play with, but we certainly need to change the way they are made. The material BiOBUDDi has developed a complete building block line. The blocks are made from residues from the sugar cane plant. Normal existing plastics are made on the basis of oil. The production of the toy blocks saves 8 times the CO2 emissions in the atmosphere and it is of course a much better option for children. The play set The Arctic play set offers building blocks with an ice blue and snow white touch. Build the big whale or the cheerful seal, the choice is up to the child.

With the playset ,there is a playing book in the set and you can find even more creation possibilities on the website. Not to mention, all of the playset themes are compatible with each other, birthing a whole world of entertainment for your child.
