Wooden toys are timeless: Our shop in Schijndel is located in a monumental building which was built around 1880 as a residence and some time later expanded with a bay on the left. The ceiling in the living room is richly painted by Mr Domburg. Motivation for inclusion on the municipal monument list: the eclectic building is important because of the architectural integrity and appearance of the exterior and the special detailing in the interior. By giving the building a shopping destination, Hout-doe, Schijndel is open monument day every day! Our shop in Den Bosch is located on the foundations of the former Friars Minor Monastery in the middle of the middle of 'des Hertogenbosch' 'Our youngest branch, the shop in Utrecht Leidsche Rijn is brand new. The entire center was built in 2018 as the capstone of the Vinexwijk Leidsche Rijn. Spatially with a ceiling height of 8 meters and industrially modern, this store is ahead of its time.
Sustainable wooden toys All our toys are solid, educational, playable and affordable. In addition, all toys comply with the latest European toy directive EN-71, they are produced in responsible production environments combined with the most responsible possible CO2 emissions (transport) and much of the wood used comes from PEFC / FSC certified forests.
Waste prevention Hout-doe contributes to waste prevention by taking in obsolete or damaged toys and giving them a second chance. Wood, the basis of the toy, does not wear out. It is often a small repair or a boost with a lick of safe paint that breathes new life into a discarded toy. Every year we surprise a good cause with this second chance toy, which it then sells at an annual fair or toy fair. This makes wooden toys accessible to everyone under the heading of second chance toys.
Packing material. Recycled packaging material is used as much as possible to send orders. To protect the products against damage, we use recycled boxes with as filling material - if necessary - recycled cardboard and paper. Through this recycling we prevent paper waste and contribute to the most sustainable use of the raw material.
Social commitment We further demonstrate our social commitment by annually donating the second chance toys to a local charity that is chosen annually. Our credo is that sustainability is not expensive! Hout-doe has a partnership for 2020 with the Stichting Buitengewoon-Speciale http://www.buitengewoon-bijzonder.nl/
