The Pintoy range of childrens toys has been designed to combine beauty, educational value, enjoyment, safety, functionality and durability. Their toys are manufactured using rubberwood from latex plantations. The trees are cut for replanting when they no longer produce enough latex, and it is at this point that the wood is recovered and made into gorgeous childrens toys. Studies show that rubber plantations can be as efficient as natural forests in removing carbon-dioxide from the air. These plantations then converting the carbon dioxide into rubber latex, soil and wood. This makes rubberwood an environmentally friendly choice, and is one of the reasons that Cottage Toys stock Pintoy products, although they do also make fantastic childrens toys which have won countless awards.
