Five good reasons to buy dantoy toys 

1. No chemicals

Do you care about the environment and do you want your children to play with toys that do not contain chemicals? Then you should buy dantoy toys because all of our toys are Nordic Swan Ecolabel certified products and comply with the world’s strictest requirements for plastic contents. The products do not contain harmful substances such as phthalates, perfume, BPA or endocrine-disruptive substances.

Check out our products from the Green Bean line, which are made from 100% recycled Nordic Swan Ecolabelled surplus materials that come from our in-house production. In addition, our BIO toys are made from 100% sustainable raw materials. The production of bioplastic also helps to reduce CO2 emissions.

2. Washable toys

We are pleased that our products can be cleaned with a disinfectant solution or cleaned in a washing machine or washed by hand using water and soap. According to the Danish Health Authority and the Danish government’s instructions, all day care nurseries, kindergartens and primary schools must wash their toys at least twice a day and any toys that cannot be washed must be kept in storage out of the reach of children. Toys from dantoy can be cleaned as necessary, which means children can continue to play with them and take great joy from them every day.

The toys invite play and can also be used with foods. All of our roleplay products are approved for contact with food and they are dishwasher and microwave safe.

3. Quality toys

When you choose a dantoy toy, you choose a quality product. All dantoy toys are made in Denmark and meet the most stringent requirements in the world. The toys are also designed to endure a high level of play, which requires heavy-duty strength and high quality. This is exemplified by the extra thickness of our toys, contrasting with many cheap products made of thin material. When you purchase a dantoy product, you get a quality product that will bring joy for many years to come; a toy that can be re-used or passed on through generations.

4. Prolonged, educational and imaginative play experiences

dantoy toys focus on the child’s development and the simulation of senses, fantasy and social skills. In particular, we focus a great deal on imaginative play during development, we therefore involve children in our product development. The knowledge and experience we continuously glean from this are an important foundation for the rewarding play we call dantoy play. Healthy imaginative play lets us invent and explore alternative realities and try out different situations. Imaginative play is a particularly good way to develop social skills and empathy. It teaches us to perceive situations from the perspective of others and to understand the interconnection between the behaviour and intentions of others. When you choose a dantoy toy, you ensure your child’s development through play.

5. 100% Danish produced toys
