Why not Spoiling Children with Beautiful and Long Lasting Toys?

Here in Paris –  thanks to COP 21 (or Paris Climate 2015) – conversations flow about what we could do as citizen about sustainable development, recycling and producing less waste…  I am not myself a very active defender of the climate and I confess that I certainly have a lot to improve in my everyday life.  But as Christmas is approaching, I was thinking about the tons of plastic that we usually buy in all forms of toys, electronic games and gadgets for our kids. These toys don’t really last for a long time, they are not recyclable, they sometimes need batteries… Can we do something about it?

In France, we have a hudge nostalgy about objects coming from the past. I was stumble across Smallable, a French online kids department store (that also have an English version) and when I see what they offer, no need to say, that I instantly felt in love with all their wood toys!

Some of them remembered me a miniature wood kitchen and dolls furnitures that my grand-father hand made for my Mum in the 40’…

Years later, they were as beautiful and in a good shape than when he finished them. I still remember playing with them in my childhood…

So today, I feel like saying: why not spoiling our children with Beautiful, Long Lasting (and recyclable) toys!
