Ethical Stocking Fillers
We’re dreaming of a green Christmas🎄. Stocking fillers don’t have to be plastic, and destined only for landfill. There are lots of eco-friendly, ethical alternatives at affordable prices 🎁. Here are a few of our favourite, with our ToyChoc boxes included of course.
ToyChoc Box CHRiSTMAS COLLECTiON
Not only do they look super-cute, each PLAYin CHOC box contains a double hit of our creamy, dreamy chocolate plus a fun, collectable, festive-themed toy. Will you get a snowman? A cheeky elf? Or a gingerbread figure? Everyone will be thrilled to find one of these treats in the toe of their stocking.
Lanka Kade Spinning Top
These cheery little whizzabouts are cheap as chips, but don’t cost the earth. Each is crafted from sustainable rubber wood, is hand-painted and hand-crafted and fairtrade. We – naturally – adore the animal-themed collection, but the London-inspired range is stylish too. https://www.envirotoy.co.uk/lanka-kade-spinning-top/
Lyra Super Ferby 4-Colour Pencil
This clever, ergonomic, triangular shape pencil encourages a grip in even the tiniest of hands, and its four-colours-in-one-centre begs to be blended, rolled, and used to express bags of creativity. There’s even a space to write your name on it. https://consciouscraft.uk/products/lyra-super-ferby-4-colour-pencil
Tender Leaf Puffin
Made from solid rubber wood and painted in water colour stain, Tender Leaf animals encourage imaginative play and look colourful on nursery shelves. Slowly build your collection of these stackable, very sweet collectables. https://tenderleaftoys.co.uk/collections/animals
Traditional, pretty and fun, marbles are a kid’s best friend. Use them to play games, roll them in your hands, or just hold them up to the light and wonder at their beauty. The selection at Ethical Kidz come in packs of ten. https://www.ethicalkidz.co.uk/shop/home-garden/garden/traditional-glass-marbles/
Guatemalan Worry Dolls
Fretting about something? Tell your worries to these tiny little dolls, then place them under your pillow at bedtime. By the morning, your cares will have been borne away. These mini toys help provide an important financial supplement to their makers; women who live in the rural areas of Guatemala. Not suitable for very young children. https://www.sharedearth.co.uk/worry-dolls-animals-c102x3318608
Durable and stylish, these wooden cars bring a vintage Americana vibe to the nursery (and beyond). They’re made for wheeling around floors, lining up across the breakfast table, and are a streamlined dream for the eyes. Start your collection this Christmas. https://scoutandcokids.com/collections/candylab-toys
The all-time classic stocking filler, no Christmas morning is complete without one of these cheery little orange fruits. Team it with a walnut for maximum retro thrills!
HOW WE COMPARE TO OTHER CHOCOLATE AND TOY COMPANiES
At PLAYin CHOC®, we are proud of the quality of our products and their positive impact on the world. We strive to create delicious and healthy chocolate treats that can be enjoyed by everyone, and are committed to eliminating single-use plastic and packaging.
VEGAN S'MORES RECiPE FOR BONFiRE NiGHT
A cosy bonfire, friends gathered around, and the sweet aroma of melted chocolate and toasted marshmallows in the air. It's the perfect setting for indulging in everyone's favourite campfire treat - s'mores!
A PLANET FRIENDLY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN
Every year, millions of pounds of chocolate and sweet wrappers, plastic pumpkin buckets, and rubber masks end up in our landfills. In addition to the environmental damage wrought by all this waste, the process of producing all this Halloween paraphernalia takes a toll on our planet as well.
Do you know if the chocolate you are eating is slave free?
There is nothing like having a sweet treat to brighten you or your child's day. But something that may not have crossed your mind is whether or not the chocolate treat you are eating is slave free?

September is an exciting month for us at PLAYin CHOC® as it marks the celebration of organic living. We take pride in being organic year-round, using a 100% organically sourced and plant-based recipe, and being members of the Soil Association.
