What is PlayMais?

PlayMais is a natural toy for crafting which does not affect our environment. When the maize is dampened it becomes adhesive. In this way, children are able to create patterns, animals, pirate ships or a world of fantasy. With food colouring but without any artificial additives it is 100% biodegradable.

The PlayMais crafting sets have been awarded with the prestigious “spiel gut” seal for toys of a particularly high pedagogical value. Furthermore the “Independent Toy Award” as well as the “German Brand Award 2019” in the categories “Excellent Brand in Kids & Toys” and “Sustainable Brand of the Year“.

How is PlayMais produced?

We produce toys for children. So, we believe that this obliges us to a commitment: Sustainability. Our proprietary biogas plant generates climate-saving energy for an eco-friendly production process. Our maize is grown using strictly controlled cultivation methods. The complete manufacturing chain is based in Germany. Thus, we are able to guarantee fair working conditions and short production routes.
