Adventerra Games Launches myEco House and myEco School Jumbo Puzzles for Tots to Cultivate Sustainable Habits Now
Boston, MA (January 10, 2022) – If kids are going to change the world one day, their toys need to show them how to make the planet a better place. Adventerra Games, founded in Switzerland, always takes a global view with its award-winning games and puzzles. Their evolving and authenticated STEM.org line is creating a buzz in the toy industry with its laser focus on educational eco toys. Stop by their New York Toy Fair Booth 6265 for the launch of myEco House ($22.99) and myEco School ($22.99) jumbo puzzles.
“We publish engaging puzzles and games that help kids as young as two or three years old learn to conserve natural resources,” acknowledges Sue Mundell, CEO of Adventerra Games North America. “While playing our simple and enjoyable games, players intuitively learn new behaviors that reduce their ecological footprints. When these behaviors become lifetime habits, players become super-heroes for the planet!”
Every one of their fun, plastic-free games and puzzles empowers children to make better choices for a greener future. That educational eco mindset has earned them more than 75 global honors including Toy Industry of Europe’s 2021Play for Change Silver Award, Good Housekeeping’s 2021 Best Toy Award, and a Mensa Recommended Award.
New for 2022 are jumbo puzzles inspired by the Montessori method. In myEco House, children as young as three years old imagine building a large house by assembling the three jumbo pieces on each of the four levels. Then, in each area – such as the driveway, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, youngsters notice common activities that harm the environment. Jumbo puzzle myEco School also asks preschoolers to “build” a school by assembling the three jumbo pieces on each of the four levels. In various parts of the school — classroom, lunchroom, schoolyard, and street level – players will see common activities that hurt the environment. With both puzzles, players must find the matching geometric shapes to insert in every area, covering up each harmful activity with an eco-friendly one.

Like all Adventerra Games, these new puzzles are designed in Switzerland, which has always been recognized for its quality, precision, and reliability. Every game and puzzle are not only plastic-free but make full use of eco-friendly materials including sugarcane shrink wrap, compostable cardboard, vegetable inks, and paper/wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
To reduce its carbon footprint and to mindfully walk the walk of its sustainability messaging, the company has begun manufacturing its games and puzzles in Mexico. Previously, games for the North American market were made in Poland and shipped across the Atlantic. The puzzles and games also support a key trend in the toy space: they allow the next generation of young creators to create compelling, educational content about a hot topic for this audience, that of climate change and taking care of our planet.
