As a child I have such fond memories of playing with a dollhouse my Grandma gave to my sister and I. I was more into dolls than my sister but remember paying for hours with my doll family. Addie and Austin were both beyond excited to receive the PlanToys® Green Dollhouse! Addie loves to play with dolls and what an imagination she and her brother are developing. I love that through play they not only grow and develop in creativity and imagination but it allows them to work on their communication and social skills as well.
Now this dollhouse is no ordinary dollhouse, it is a true Green Dollhouse! By harboring creative play, the PlanToys® Green Dollhouse teaches your little ones the things we can do in everyday life to live in harmony with the earth.
- Wind Turbine that converts its energy into electricity.
- Solar Panel that converts the sun’s energy into electricity.
- Electrical Inverter that converts the alternative energy sources unto usable energy for the home.
- Complete Recycling Area with separate bins to teach your children the difference in: Non-Biodegradable items, Biodegradable items, Recyclable Bin.
- A Rain water collection system
- Shade Canopy that allows us to be in tune with the natural environment.
And what green house would be complete without an actual “green” space? There is an outdoor green area for relaxation and even gardening. There is also a green wall that uses climbing plants as an insulation to keep the indoor temperature comfortable and save on energy.
Although the wooden family is not included (so you can select the right family that fits your family) all the furniture is included. I love that none of the rooms are set and your child has the ability to decide which space they want each room to be. Truthfully, my children were most excited about the little wooden “Loo”. Immediately Austin wanted to know where the tank was? It gave me the opportunity to explain that it was a composting toilet like we hope to have one day!
I am beyond excited about having the opportunity to give my children the Green Dollhouse from PlanToys®. It is truly an amazing green toy that has been made by a truly green company! My children will have hours of fun on end playing with their Green Dollhouse from PlanToys®.
PlanToys® was started over 30 years ago when seven university students graduated with the vow to develop a company that would contribute positively to society and humanity. One of those students, Vitool Viraponsavan did just that in 1981 by creating PlanToys®. With innovative design, high quality and safety standards, the company was well on its way to becoming the world’s leading manufacturer of safe, eco-friendly and educational wooden toys for children.
PlanToys® was the first company in the world to manufacture toys from reclaimed rubber wood. Today PlanToys® owns 6,250 hectares of rubber wood plantations and contracts an additional 6,250 hectares. Each year they replant over 100,000 rubber trees. Our business has created over 1,100 jobs in and around the southern Thai village of Trang.
As a company, PlanToys® practices the “FOUR R’s” of green living: Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. PlanToys® is committed to making a positive impact on the world today while being mindful of the generations of tomorrow.
