Spoil them rotten with this great selection of fairly traded toys – a packet of seeds for bees, beechwood spinner and colouring in with our beautiful handmade twig pencils that come in ten colours. But, lets be real, the chocolate buttons will be the first to be dealt with!
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.
Ombar chocolate buttons – to kids these are just amazing chocolate buttons to be eaten a quickly as physically possible! For us grown-ups it’s good to know they are organic, raw and free from refined sugar – they are actually good for our little ones tummies and they are delicious. We have tasted quite a few, just to make sure! The packaging is also completely compostable in your food waste. Ombar’s entire supply chain is carefully monitored to ensure everyone from farmers to exporters are compensated fairly.

Note pads – made from old till receipts and beautifully recycled into these great little note books. We purchase these from an environmentally responsible and ethically sourced promotional merchandise specialist in the UK. A perfect companion to the twig pencils.
Animal glasses – Made from thick paper, these super fun animal masks 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. A mix of six animals will be spread across the bags: tiger, elephant, parrot, giraffe, lion and a very cheeky alligator!
Colouring-in activity sheets – these activity sheets with keep little hands and minds busy. Printed on recycled paper.
Eco Hero Card – Bright and fun card to keep that comes with a wordsearch game and fun tips to help kids become eco heroes.
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!
