All the board used for games, puzzles and product packaging is 100% recycled. The paper used for printed covers is sourced from sustainable forests and coated with a water-based varnish and all are manufactured in the UK.
Orchard Toys products are designed with the ethos of “learning made fun” and combine bright, innovative design, durability and quality with sound educational principles. With the latter in mind, and to further endorse our green credentials, we have designed and manufactured such products as What’s Rubbish and Flower Pot Game two examples of our commitment to help children learn about recycling, composting and green issues. Customers who buy Orchard Toys tend to be very loyal to the brand. Many of them are now second generation Orchard Toys customers.
We create new products from our own ideas using our team of in-house designers and illustrators all of whom have studied graphic design and illustration at university or college. All products are extensively tested in homes, local schools and nurseries throughout their development, to ensure that they are educationally sound and that they are aimed at the correct age group, but are also great fun to play/use.
We have an educational adviser who has had many years experience at reception and key stage 1 and 2. She works closely with our design team to ensure that skills necessary in the various National Curriculum key stages are built into the design of a jigsaw puzzle or into the gameplay of a game.
Over the years we have regularly been awarded toy industry awards with over 50 won in recent years, for both the quality of our products and customer service.
At Playsafe Kids, we have a great range of Orchard toys that includes Orchard Toy Games, Orchard Toy Puzzles, Orchard Toy Race Games and Orchard Toy Baa Baa Game among others.
