Our Favorite Brands! (under construction)

Two Bros Bows:

These are made in the USA in North Carolina. Two brothers were inspired by Merida in the movie Brave. The two boys built a few prototypes to sell at a local market. Sales went well and prompting the creation of a second batch of bows and the rest is history. Two Bros is still owned and managed by the original family members. Mix and match or buy a pre-made set to get started. Inspired by Merida from Brave.

Plan Toys:

Instead of standard chemical ink, we begin using biodegradable and eco-friendly soy ink for our printed materials. Plan never cuts down a single tree for production. We added value to rubber trees that no longer produce latex, normally scheduled to be burned, by using them to make toys for children. We implemented sustainable packaging – using recycled, reusable paper for toy packages and printed materials. 1994 PlanToys developed the use of water-based and non-toxic dyes for manufacturing. Today, chemical dyes containing lead or other heavy metals are prohibited for use in our factory. With guidance from research done by Dr.Mudtorlep Nisoa, the Supervisor of Plasma Technology for the Agricultural Applications Research Laboratory at Walailak University in Thailand, we began utilizing microwave technology in our manufacturing process to help keep weevils out of rubberwood. Microwave technology is a green method that uses a microwave for drying – helping to preserve the quality of agricultural products while also causing evaporation of moisture from wood at low temperature. At the same time, this technology destroys weevils and insects in the wood without using chemicals and insecticides.
