The company has donated a truck load of toys for the children of Ukraine, which have been sent to Chelm, Poland to the HELP UKRAINE centre.

We worked with LGL Worldwide Logistics based in Manchester and volunteers at HELP UKRAINE to arrange the shipment of toys. LGL freight company also provided their services free of charge. The truck of toys left our warehouses on Friday 8th April and arrived in Poland on Tuesday 12th April, where they will be distributed according to needs across regions of Ukraine.

In addition, a significant amount of cash funds has been donated to one of our toy distributors located in Dnipro, Ukraine, the city where the airport has been completed destroyed by Russian bombings. The distributor will be using the funds to help with a children’s shelter.

“We are fortunate to work in an industry which brings joy to children, and we could not stand back and allow a humanitarian crisis to unfold without us helping.
“We are a Global organisation and that allows us to have contacts throughout the world. We hope that this donation of toys and funds will help the people of Ukraine and we hope that there is peace very soon.”
Mike Butterworth, Divisional Director

HTI’s Bubblz products are making a big step to help the environment with recyclable bubbles solution bottles, made of recycled plastic, and all made here in the UK.

The impact of manufacturing on the environment is of ever-increasing concern among consumers, with the younger generation driving the conversations. To mark a significant point in our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, the company invested in British manufacturing facilities for Bubblz products in 2020. With a significant chunk of a product’s carbon footprint coming in the form of transport, onshoring a bubbles factory in Lancashire was a hugely positive move in terms of sustainability. The move also ensured that the quality of the finished product, from the bubble solution to the bottles, is superior to our competitors.






From the beginning, our bubbles bottles have all been 100% recyclable and they are made from 100% recycled material. The water used in HTI’s bubble production is also cleaner thanks to the use of a state-of-the-art filtration system.

The combination of 100% recyclable products and bringing the bubbles factory to the UK, is the beginning of a long-term commitment for us to become a greener toy company. We are making these changes because it’s the right thing to do, and it’s a core value of ours moving forwards that we continue to reduce the impact on our environment.

Bubblz products provide the ultimate solution as the one stop shop for this all-year-round classic toy. The range of wands, machines, flurries, and mowers are all that’s needed to turn a home or garden into the ultimate bubble fun zone. The Bubblz brand also boasts licenses with three of the top pre-school TV shows: Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and Hey Duggee.

The doors of the UK plant, which has been fully audited and certified, are open to anyone who would like to look around, any time they care to visit, and we are very keen for our retail partners to see the bubble production process for themselves.

We’re delighted to announce that the Peppa Pig Wooden Mud Kitchen is a finalist in The Best Licensed Toy Category in this years Licensing Awards!
Now available to buy at The RangeArgos and ALDI, this fabulously colourful mud kitchen, made from FSC approved wood, is the perfect outdoor play item to stimulate children’s imagination as they experiment with their own mud pie menu.
