Plan your green Halloween

Meet Mama ToyDrop

Anna Whitaker is the London-based mum of two behind ToyDrop. She launched the site after her original store (selling beautiful, ethical toys) closed down in early 2019. Horrified by the amount of flimsy, flashing plastic that went hand-in-hand with babies, her first mission was to find a stylish and sustainable alternative to their toys. Today this ethos takes a more holistic approach as she learns the ropes of green parenting and teaches her boys (Arlo and Rudi) to tread as gently as possible in this big wild world.

Copywriter by trade, she also works part-time for one of London’s leading advertising agencies, running ToyDrop as a passion project out of the loft in her Walthamstow terrace.

What we’re all about

Raising awesome humans

The very foundations of our existence. ToyDrop was born out of a personal parenting strategy to shape kind, happy, socially-conscious kiddos. It’s a work in progress that keeps an open mind and a caring heart. It embraces imperfection on the regular and is the basis of everything we do here.

Inspiring a lifetime of curiosity

It’s a cliché but there’s a big old world out there just waiting to be explored. From physical places to fresh ideas, endless lessons to innovations, our challenge is to soak it all up and share each discovery with a positive, progressive approach that’s relevant to the modern family.

Curating a beautiful childhood

It might sound superficial but ToyDrop has always prioritised style. We believe that simple, thoughtful design makes the world a better place and we want our children to grow up with the same ethos. It’s why we only share products, places and lifestyles that match our playful vibe and commitment to conscious consumption.
