It's not just our toys that are environmentally friendly. At Eco Toys Pty Ltd we have an eco policy that ensures everything we do as a company reflects our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and protecting our precious environment.

Supporting Australian made & Australian companies:

We aim to support locally made and Australian designed toys that have been crafted by highly skilled people paid a fair wage for their work.

Our priority is to support local and if we can source toys locally or at least support an Australian company then we will before looking overseas. Eco Toys is proud to support local artisans / crafts people and many Australian manufacturers that make high quality, beautiful and unique toys.

Materials, Paints, Glues:

 All of our products are made from sustainable, renewable and / or recycled materials. Each product / brand is thoroughly screened to ensure they meet our strict ‘eco criteria’ below:

All Eco Toys are:

  •     Made from 100% natural materials such as wood, certified organic cotton or pure wool or 100% recycled materials.
  •     Materials are sourced from renewable and sustainable resources or recycled materials.
  •     60% of our toys are either Australian made and/or designed in Australia and owned by Australian companies.
  •     Paints and finishes are water based and 100% non-toxic and safe.
  •     Our baby soft toys are certified organic cotton which promotes farming techniques that respect and replenish the environment.
  •     Eco Toys uses NO synthetic fillings for soft toys.
  •     We also have a range of 100% pure wool felt toys, a biodegradable, sustainable and renewable material.
  •     We choose manufacturers that care about the environment and run conservation projects such as the tree plus project.
  •     We support manufacturers who ensure workers get a fair wage and run programs that fight poverty in third world countries.


Quality Play:

Eco Toys are beautiful to touch and stimulate your child’s senses through play. They encourage open ended, imaginative play that promotes learning, social and physical development.

Our toys are non-gender specific, we don’t believe in ‘girls’ and ‘boys’ toys. We believe in childhood.

Eco Toys are highly educational and multifunctional which means they can be played with in many different ways engaging your child’s curiosity, promoting problem solving and many other valuable learning skills.

Eco Toys meet the highest Australian & European standards for toys safety. They are high quality, durable toys that last and can be passed down the generations
