Diana was born into a family with a strong link to the woodlands and a long tradition in wood work.
Her great grandfather produced coal during the 30’s and 40’s, and managed pine woodlands all his life. Her grandfather started working as a young boy on all things related to wood, starting his own wood furniture manufacturing and restoration business in the 70’s. Over 40+ years later, the workshop is is still running, now under her uncle’s skilful hands, lifetime experience and contemporary taste.
At the age of 24, Diana became a forest engineer and worked as such for 7 years, until she met Rui, a world traveller with business and IT background. Together they have been working towards a more natural and simple way of life, and together they started Ekotoy as one of the many expressions of their quest.
Ekotoy is a family run business, only possible with the help, support and guidance of our like-minded family members and the passion of our dedicated team.
Customer Care Procurement
For the environmental and safety conscious parent, a standard on-shelf, mainstream toys just won’t do. Such products don’t quite tick all the boxes when it comes to safety, educational value, cool design and social and environmental friendliness.
We have a passion for toys that are great for kids, our planet and those who produce them!
We pay attention to detail and only choose toys that we love and would buy for ourselves! Bringing you products that are beautiful, encourage discovery, help to develop motor & sensory skills, stimulate creativity, imagination, intuition, ingenuity, concentration, memory and, of course, are a lot of fun!
We carefully scrutinise the brands we work with, thus assuring product origin, quality and manufacturing conditions.
Expect personalised and devoted customer care and service, with fast response and shipping. Overall professional handling from your first click to home delivery of your purchase.
Eco-friendly toys were the spark that ignited the idea behind Ekotoy. However, we have a naturally global way of thinking that includes much more than just toys.
We just couldn’t resist venturing into the decor world! It goes hand in hand with the toys, and there are many gorgeous things out there that deserve a place in your eco home!
Truth be told, most of them have that double toy/decor function anyway…
What describes us the best? The criteria we use to select the best toys!
We are particularly fond of independent artisans and support sustainable & smaller scale productions.
We have a soft spot for beautiful, unique, distinctive, top quality pieces with high educational and/or decorative value.
If you think your work falls into the above categories, please tell us all about it!
