How do you clean the toys?
Each and every toy is cleaned methodically using *ECOVER products. Tests demonstrate that 99 per cent of all germs are killed by our cleaning techniques, which makes our toys cleaner than those that you own already.
*ECOVER: Their plant based and mineral ingredients are renewable, biodegrade quickly and completely, have a low aquatic toxicity and they are safer and more caring for your skin.
What happens if my child wants to keep one of the toys?
No problem, we completely understand that children sometimes get attached to a particular toy. You are welcome to buy it from us, please email us directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens if one of the toys gets broken or lost?
We are totally aware that there will be general wear and tear. If a toy is really broken or lost, we can invoice you for a fair replacement value.
Why are Toy Box Club toys gender neutral?
It seems to us that it’s all too easy to foist lazy stereotypes on our children. Boys are encouraged to play with construction toys that hone their spacial skills or ones that encourage action and adventure, whilst the toys labelled for girls are often geared towards domestic tasks and physical appearance.
Child psychologists have shown that the toys children play with develop certain skills and reinforce certain interests, which could influence future choices.
