Hodge Podge Toys is 100% battery free.
Without taking myself too seriously, I have tried to be very specific in the product lines I carry at the store.
I have tried to find companies that take pride in their products, packaging and their brand. Globalization is a beautiful thing, however the poorly regulated outsourcing in manufacturing is concerning. Labour practices for majority of the things we all possess is hard to regulate. However I figured that I could try to bring a small change in the little things that bring our children so much pleasure. It's not perfect or even close to it, however I'm trying to make a small change and learning everyday.
As a parent I also wanted to ensure that all parents and children felt included. Parents with children who have special needs, will hopefully also find fun and enjoyable options at HPT. We also feature specialty puzzles for your young at heart seniors living with Alzheimers.
At Hodge Podge, the focus is on trying to feature quality toys that are unique & fun. I also like to feature companies that give back.
Companies that care about the materials they use, labour standards, packaging and giving back within their own community or to the global community. Giving back also through Fair Trade practices and using FSC approved manufacturing materials.
At Hodge Podge Toys, you might not find all the 'popular' toys brands. However, I hope you find toys that delight your senses & discover new brands and incredible options.
I hope you enjoy your experience.
Sustainable. Responsible. Evergreen Fun.
