About Us

Hello! I'm Mandy, the face behind Fairplay. I'm a wife to Andy and mama to two darling boys who are also my best product testers! We are here to connect you with ethically-crafted natural toys for mindful play.

We value considered purchasing and slow-made, sustainable products which are good to both people and planet. Everything you find on our website has been curated from organisations that represent hundreds of small-scale artisans around the world.

By shopping online from our selection of ethical products you are giving these artisans a way of providing for their own families AND supporting a small business in New Zealand (thank you!).

Fairplay was created to provide Kiwis with an alternative to the mass-produced, sweatshop toys that dominate the toy industry. We are committed to a way of business that helps improve the lives of the talented people who make our products - you can read more about them here.

We stock quality, open ended pieces that are kind to the environment, bring joy to your little ones and give hope to those who have crafted them. Transparency is key - we take pride that every person in our supply chain is treated well and paid fairly for the beautiful work that they do. 

And we care about our planet! Every product in our shop is eco-friendly and made from natural or upcycled materials - no plastic!

We also stock a small range of unique products from New Zealand makers which compliment our fair trade pieces. All natural, ethically and sustainably handmade by small businesses who share the ethos of treading lightly on our earth. 

If you have any questions about any of our products please get in touch, I would love to help.

Thank you so much for taking the time to check us out and for choosing to support fair trade and New Zealand small business! ♡
