Click-together building blocks (so compatible with, LEGO Duplo, you couldn't tell them apart) - made locally in Europe? Without plastic or any petroleum, just plants!?! Yes! That's BiOBUDDi!

What each set contains: Click-together building blocks, similar size to and compatible with LEGO Duplo (but these are free of all petro-plastics!) Sticker sheets. Manual.

These blocks grip to each other a little more than LEGO, hardly noticeable for kids with typical muscle tone, more challenging for kids with muscle tone issues.

Feel great about where it comes from:

  • Raw materials from Europe? No - Brazil - we are not thrilled about this because it's far away (transport carbon emissions). But we do have assurance that no rainforest was removed to create the sugarcane fields:
    • The sugarcane is grown in a different region of Brazil far from the Amazon rainforest
    • The Brazilian government doesn't allow new sugarcane plantations because they feel the country has enough
  • Organic? Yes >70% of the sugarcane is organically-grown
  • Manufactured in Europe? Yes - Netherlands
  • What's it made from? Bioplastic (specifically Green PE) - an innovative, carbon-neutral material made from the leftovers after sugarcane is harvested. It's carbon-neutral because plants absorb carbon as they grow - whereas petroleum-based plastic has a carbon footprint of up to 6 times its own weight in CO2. Bioplastic is fully recyclable at end of life along with petro-plastics. Think of it as FairTrade coffee - looks the same, tastes the same, but has a very different impact on the world because of how it's produced.
  • What's it packaged in? FSC cardboard box, bioplastic bag (also made from sugarcane, recyclable including in Ireland)
  • Shipping packaging from manufacturer to us: Cardboard only
  • Plastic-free? 100% free from petroleum-derived plastic - made from bioplastic, see above for the difference
  • Vegan? Yes!
  • Animal-cruelty-free? Yes
  • Reused upcycled or recycled? No

Feel great about where it goes after you've used it:

  • Biodegradable / compostable? Not biodegradable (but still really good for our planet because it's made from plants (not petroleum), can be used for generations and then recycled
  • Reusable refillable? Yes
  • Recyclable? Yes 100%

Feel great about you and your child using it:

  • Great for ages: 1.5 to 6 years
  • Shelf life: Indefinite
  • Awards: UK Toy Shop 2019 Gold Medal; DIN CERTCO certificate of bio-based materials; Baby Innovation Green Award 2019; Eco Excellence 2018 best nursery eco toy; LuxLife Parent & Baby awards 2018
  • Safety standards met: EN71 EU toy safety standards
  • Solvent-free? Yes
  • Gluten-free? Yes
  • Peanut-free? Yes
  • Soy-free? Yes
  • Lactose-free? Yes
  • Easy to wash-off clothes skin? N/A
  • Improvements we're working on in this product: None, we think it's perfect! But let us know what you think!
