About Us

Who we are and what we do

Environmentally friendly toys that support children’s development

Our core values are to provide exciting and challenging toys offering the highest play value and quality while only using ecologically sound materials and packaging that are sourced both sustainably and are 100% recyclable.

Topitots are a small, family-run business designing and manufacturing environmentally friendly toys based in Boscastle, a beautiful village located on the North Cornwall Coast.  Being lucky enough to live in such a beautiful part of the world, we truly appreciate the value of the natural world around us.  Being located on the coast and seeing the vast amounts of plastic waste that washes up on our beaches, we felt compelled to offer something a little different to parents and carers looking to give their children the best opportunity without damaging the environment.

With over 12 years’ experience within the play industry, we know how important play is.  It is one of the main ways in which children learn and develop.  It is an integral part of the early years foundation stage of learning, and through the power of play, children develop their language skills, emotions, creativity and social skills as well as their dexterity and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength.

Open-ended play helps to nurture imagination, confidence and give a child a sense of adventure. Through this, they learn essential skills such as problem-solving, working with others, sharing and much more.  It is important to healthy brain development and it is through play that children engage and interact with the world around them.

We also consider the environmental impacts that the mainstream production of plastic toys have on the natural world.  So many toys today are made from virgin plastics and contain parts that cannot be recycled leading to thousands of tonnes of waste being sent to landfill or ending up in the oceans.

We believe it is our responsibility, for the good of ourselves, our children and the planet to only use materials and processes that do not harm the environment.  We can look after the environment, and have fun doing it!

Eco-toys that encourage exploration and develop confidence

At Topitots, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop alongside each other.

That’s why we strive to make environmentally friendly toys that not only have multiple uses but also offer great quality play and development opportunities to children of different abilities.

While learning through play, our range of toys helps children develop their self-esteem, improve and maintain their physical and mental health, inspire their imagination, independence and creativity and offers opportunities for children of all abilities to play together.

The Climbing Pikler Triangle provides multiple benefits.  Aside from being simply great fun for children to play solo or together, children develop core gross motor skills, learn to explore their abilities through risk-taking and challenge while developing their confidence.

Our Rocker Board or Round Balance Board help develop gross motor skills and coordination, but when used as a seat, they become a boat offering great imaginative play experiences or lean it up and it becomes a slide for toys.  Great for proprioceptive play to help develop unconscious awareness of body positioning and further develop gross-motor dexterity.

Our Tip Table serves as a practical workspace for art and design but tips up at an angle for kids who prefer to work at floor height.  It can also be used as a stand for paper or a digital tablet.  Add a blanket, and it turns into a mini-den, great for exciting imaginative independent and social development.

The Topitots modular House is great for inspiring your Childs imagination by building endless combinations using the tactile, slot together pieces.  By playing, your child develops concentration, focus and begins to learn a variety of shapes and patterns from the world around us.
Alongside this, the shapes can be used creatively in shadow tracing or as stencils to develop and encourage artistic skills.

From the first weeks, our Baby Gym gives you the opportunity to enable your child to begin exploring the wider world through sensory experiences.  By attaching your choice of sensory accessories, your baby begins building and maintaining vital nerve connections in the brain whilst developing motor skills and also begin to develop language skills.

At Topitots we design and create safe, durable and multi-use products.

Made in Cornwall from fully recyclable materials, using eco-friendly packaging so you can be confident that you are doing the best for your children and the environment.
