Description

A child's tipper truck toy made from a biobased plastic material of which 90% is derived from sugarcane. The component parts of the truck are injection moulded and snapped together without the need for adhesives, therefore making it easier to recycle. The wheels are connected by metal axles. The truck has a distinctive pastel colour palette in shades of brown, blue and green. Manufactured by Danish company Dantoy in 2018. The toy is presented in a brown cardboard box with single colour printing which reinforces the company's environmental awareness.
