A few years ago, BiOBUDDi began to work on the development of the larger size (DUPLO-compatible) bricks made from leftovers of the sugarcane plant. It developed in 2 years’ time a unique and patented special compound. The bricks needed to keep their shape and offer the necessary mechanical properties for easy assembly and disassembly even by the smallest children. In 2018 BiOBUDDi supplied the first toy sets with bricks and currently it is selling in over 20 countries around the world. The bricks have a real nice soft touch and bright colors. BiOBUDDi has developed also a special range for educational institutions. It wants to expand the range in the coming years also in other toy product segments. BiOBUDDi is 100% made in The Netherlands (EU).
