My husband and I love Plan Toy. We saw them before P was born and vowed to buy them for her even though they are on the more expensive side. They are everything we could want.
They are environmentally safe, use sustainable products, and are safe for the kids…and by safe I don’t mean some government standard. I mean, they are made of non-chemically treated rubber wood. P can put them in her mouth and I don’t have to worry.
Besides the safety and eco-friendly factors there is the design factor. We are aesthetically driven people (my husband a photographer and I a graphic artist) and these toys are beautiful. The buildings are modern designed with beautiful colors and every little detail is innovative and brilliant. I just can’t buy P a cheese ball doll house when I could get her something as beautiful as a Plan Toy house.
Yesterday, I hit the Craig’slist jackpot. I got the airport, city station, parking garage, road system delux, bridge set, construction vehicles, delivery vans, tanker truck, road construction set, school bus, street cleaner, garbage truck all the people…ok, let me just say it would be easier to list what we didn’t get than what we did. I got it all for $95.
I went to Alexes’ house with the intent of just buying the city station. Then I saw the airport and I told her I’d take that as well. We ended up talking for over an hour and by the time I left she had fallen in love with P and gave us half the entire set up for free. I didn’t know what to say. I was overwhelmed by her generosity and thrilled to have this all for P!!! I could not afford to buy her all this at retail price. I will be sending Alexes and her family positive thoughts every time we play.
