Yby was developed in the belief that imagination is an essential part of childhood and that caring for the environment is the platform for their future. Yby is a unique toy that encourages exploration, not just through visual lenses, but through sounds, texture, smells, expanding ones’ intuitive self, activating multifaceted experiences inspired by nature’s abundant resources and most of all unlimited beauty. Yby is 100% plastic free and is manufactured using bio-based materials. Yby means ‘Earth’ in Tupi, an archaic language spoken by the indigenous people from Brazil.
