Amazing fairly traded toy value pack – this little bag is filled with big fun!
Seeds – the packet is made from recycled paper and itself fully recyclable. We source our seeds from a UK supplier, and all the wildflower seeds are of native UK origin. We don’t buy them in from mainland Europe where the mixes are not entirely of British species. We only supply seeds that are of British wildflowers, and therefore suitable for our climate and insects.
Bird whistle – handmade in Java Indonesia by hand, fairly traded from bamboo. Blow gently into the whistle moving the stick up and down to create a magical birdsong. Take it outside and see which birds you can start a conversation with. Please note some of the whistles come with a small CE sticker on and this is a legal requirement for some toys.
Twig Pencils – made by a family in Thailand, these fairly traded twig pencils are all unique and perfect for smaller hands. Please note in these budge bags five pencil will be supplied all different colours.
Paper glasses –Made from thick paper, these super fun glasses can be coloured in and enjoyed by the children and when the time comes can be recycled with your paper and card collection. Unlike masks or party hats, there are no elasticated bands or staples – just 100% recyclable paper.
Party Bag – our newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper. The organisation was started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances. These elder children, now with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of the children that they have taken in from the streets surrounding New Delhi train station. Support for this wonderful project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse.
The newspapers are either in Indian language or English. They are made from recycled newspapers, this is why sometimes your bag will have a completed crossword!
Thank you so much for the gift bags, they’re exactly what I was looking for! Thanks also for being so prompt when I thought they had disappeared, it was really appreciated. It’s been so lovely finding these as I’m doing my best to reduce plastic whilst ensuing my daughter doesn’t ‘miss out’ so this is an ideal party bag idea.

The party bags I ordered were dispatched within four hours of my placing the order. My 4 yr old son loved them, as did all of his friends. They were a conversation starter between parents which allowed me to extol Emmeline for her outstanding customer service and her vision. Super value for money. Thank you. Xx

I was fed up with the horrible bits of plastic that came with party bags and wanted to do something different for my son’s 4th birthday. I found Emmeline’s lovely website and picked two products. Customer service was great & bags arrived quickly. The children loved the whistle, seeds and crayons. Had a load of positive comments from parents. Much more durable and we are still all enjoying the whistle. What a great idea!

This bundle was great for a 10 year old birthday party. All the kids really appreciated it. Just added some sweets!
Great value for money.
Lovely bags & contents. Children particularly like the whistles. Correspondence was excellent and we were able to get the bags delivered quickly as I’d left it to the last moment. Thank you!

I’m so glad I ordered these. My boy loves his and played with it for ages. We still need to plant the seeds. I’ve had really positive comments from other parents. Arrived quickly and took moments to assemble.
Ella (verified owner) –
These arrived quickly in completely plastic-free packaging – great! The children at my daughter’s party loved the wooden whistles. I had positive comments from the other parents and I hope it will have prompted some of them to consider their own choices for party bags!

I’m so glad I’ve come across your website. Just had a party for my 6 year old. Your party bags are lovely, exactly what I was looking for. No plastic nonsense, eco conscious. I think you’re doing amazing job, making awareness about recyclable products. Great job! Thank you!

Thank you Emmeline! The party bags arrived quickly considering the current circumstances. All in re purposed packaging. It’s my daughter’s “lockdown birthday” on Saturday so she hasn’t seen them yet but I love everything about them and hope it helps teach my kids about being eco conscious too. We got a second one to give to her best friend. I’m sure these will give joy and some activities to do in lieu of the planned party. Here’s to 2021!
