As a homegrown, family-run company, we have been doing our absolute best to keep serving our community during the COVID-19 crisis. And we are grateful for the recognition. This month, Safari Ltd is proud to share we have been acknowledged as leaders in the home schooling industry, in addition to pioneering the toy industry in reducing its carbon foot print.
Bringing the Zoo to Children - Without Leaving Home
In a time when children can't visit the Zoo, the zoo comes to you! CNN recently published a round-up article of the many zoos, museums and aquariums offering virtual tours and live shows, as well as the products that help land the experience right at home. Our Wild TOOB®, a fan favorite in our TOOBS® line, was recognized as a terrific add-on to a cyber trip to Cincinnati Zoo's "home safaris."
Our exclusive TOOBS® are all-in-one sets including several miniature figures focused on a theme, with packaging that serves as a re-usable portable storage case with a latching top and carry handle. These mini toy sets are great for vacations and trips, dioramas and school projects, or sand tray therapy and other play therapy exercises.
Toy Manufacturers Are Going Green
As toy manufacturers go green, Safari Ltd Leads the way with plant-based building blocks! There's nothing like the satisfaction of opening a toy for the first time... and admittedly, it can be a mess. We, and many of our peers, are trying to reduce that mess while still preserving that magic moment in a child's life. In a recent article by The Associated Press via The New York Times, Safari Ltd was recognized for our efforts in distributing BiOBUDDi Building Blocks, 100% plant-based, CO2 neutral and recyclable.
How are these blocks made of plants? They’re made from “Green PE”, which is a sustainable, renewable type of plastic derived from the sugarcane plant. Read more about the process here.
