Retoy toy swap
With the Retoy-kit, you can create toy swap activities where children get to experience sustainable consumption in a fun way. By swapping, creating and giving toys, children are introduced to their rights according to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Using the power of play, children gain awareness about how everything and everyone in the world are interconnected.
Retoy’s activities have been created and developed together with children in Sweden.
