Bird whistle – from Java, Indonesia, it’s Fairtrade and handmade 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, which is a legal requirement for some toys.

Postcard – made from recycled paper, our quality design-your-own-postcards are a perfect addition to any party or gift bag. They make a lovely project for kids to show off their drawing and writing skills and brighten someone’s day.
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!
