Check out this brand-new “I’m Green” line of bioplastic toys from Dantoy. Made of at least 90% sugarcane, a sustainable raw material, Dantoy’s bioplastic is 100% recyclable.
Dantoy’s range of bio toys includes this popular 22-piece, pretend play dinner set which can be used for garden picnics. Ideal for playing it is safe, durable and toxin free. It encourages social skills, interaction and helps children to learn whilst having fun. We were kindly #gifted a set for George to try out and he loves them. They are made well, and can sustain any banging and crashing around (just like any other plastic) that little ones absolutely love doing! They’re also a lovely muted green colour too, rather than the common rainbow brights you get in most children’s toys.
Dantoy leads the way with their bioplastics. The manufacture of bioplastics reduces carbon emissions. The sugarcane is cultivated on controlled, pesticide-free plantations in central and southern Brazil and is harvested every 6 – 12 months. Bioplastic made of sugarcane is a 100% sustainable raw material. Making the sets a green planet friendly option which essentially makes way for a healthier planet for our little ones to live on in their futures!
Sugarcane can be harvested several times a year and new plants are planted every five to seven years. The fields are harvested every six to twelve months enabling them to be classified as a sustainable raw material too. Another great bonus is that Sugarcane absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, thereby minimising the greenhouse effect. For the manufacture of bioplastic, the carbon emissions accounts are positive from the budding of the plant until it is manufactured into bioplastic. For each kilo of manufactured bioplastic, 3.09 kg of carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere.
An added bonus is that Dantoy’s packaging is all made from recycled cardboard. Their toys are made to last and are approved for contact with foods, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, frost-proof and contains no toxins. – More green and eco credentials which we believe is great, creating an all round eco green product!
Dantoy believe that people should buy less & buy well. That is why their toys are only made with sustainable products. We can all be eco-friendly and by choosing brands who care will make a little difference.

Introducing the multi- award winning @wetbrushuk detangler, the solution to getting rid of those pesky knots gently from your wet hair! I always struggle with this (and most brushes) but this beauty glides straight through with ease! Coming in three new monochrome designs and two original shades of black and pink there’s one to choose for everyone! We particularly like the monochrome patterns as they suit every personality so you cannot go wrong.
How you brush your hair is key to strong and healthy hair and the single most overlooked step in haircare. Hair is at it’s weakest when wet and pulling can snap it like a rubber band. This is why you should brush with a tool like the WetBrush detangler – that gently loosens knots without pulling or breaking hair.
The revolutionary WetBrush Original Detanglers utilise IntelliflexTM bristles technology, which make it the perfect detangling brush in the salon, in the shower, after a gym workout or at the beach. IntelliflexTM bristles are thin, strong and very flexible. They have adaptive flexibility – flexible on one stroke and firm on the next, eliminating all tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping. No spilt ends, no hair loss, just healthy brushing and detangling. This allows for over 45% less breakage, 56% less effort resulting in 100% happier hair.
The WetBrush Original Detangler is the solution, the moment you use it, you will #feelthedifference and you will never want to try another hairbrush.
