Lanco Toys – Their greenest company
Lanco toys are made from natural rubber and hand-painted with non-toxic paints. These toys are water-resistant and are completely PVC, BPA and Phthalate free. Babies can chew and mouth them with total safety.
Toys’ bright colours appeal to infants and their soft, flexible, lightweight texture makes it easy for tiny hands to grasp and handle. When squeezed, they make a gentle squeak that is sure to delight.
Lanco toys are constructed from the sap or milk of the common rubber tree known as Hevea brasiliensis. Natural rubber can be harvested sustainably without the use of herbicides and is readily biodegradable.
Lanco Toys is a third generation family business manufacturing natural rubber toys and gifts in Spain since 1952.

- handmade in los angeles- from side tables to built in cabinetry, desks to armoires…these are heirloom quality pieces of furniture.
- 100% solid wood from sustainable forests
- zero-voc/non-toxic water based paints
- socially & ecologically friendly from the start.
- traditional joinery for heirloom quality furniture, hardware free finger pull technology, painted drawer interiors and full extension undermount air slides.
- all woods can be finished in beeswax to have a completely organic piece
- eco-hardwoods FSC Certified
The builders are a family owned business, so its great to support local builders and family businesses in a time of corporate domination.
