Aroundsquare is a small social enterprise  - not a business - "devoted to healthy development inside and out". It is involved in a variety of endeavours with leverage creativity and learning and strives to provide high quality, beneficial products and services for greater good.

It's founder, educator, eco-toy developer and international consultant Matt Hiebet claims that his toys "’ll knock the ever-blinkin lights right out of the cheap plastic disposable whizimagig that’s collecting dust at the back of your closet". You've probably already seen or perhaps bought his award-winning Twig building blocks, but it's his colourful Goodwood Deconstruction Blocks that caught my eye. 

 Committed to sustainability, aroundsquare's  Goodwood sets are made from forest-friendly wood in a small, ethically run Chinese factory (yes, that's right, China). You can even donate a playset to a childcare centre in the developing world for just $12.

Simple, no-fuss packaging, colourful and sustainable - One I will obviously be keeping an eye on!
