Planet Buddies Launch Child Friendly and Sustainably Packaged Headphones & Wireless Speakers

A Range of Colourful and Spirited Characters who Represent Endangered, Vulnerable, and Threatened Species from All Over the World.

Planet Buddies

Planet Buddies, an environmentally conscious brand announces their lineup of products designed and created specifically for children. The Planet Buddies brand was born out of a dedication to raising awareness for endangered animals all over the world and educating children on what they can do to help.

The product range includes a family of headphones, wireless speakers and tablet cushions, all representing endangered, vulnerable or threatened species including ‘Pepper the Penguin’ and ‘Olive the Owl’. The products each have a story about its character, why they are endangered and practical tips on what children can do to help protect all life on our planet such as turning off lights when they leave a room.


Planet Buddies have launched three types of headphones to kick start the range. The headphones are all suitable for children aged 3+ with adjustable headbands and safety limited to 85DB to protect hearing as recommended by the World Health Organisation. The child-safe audio limit on the headphones helps to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. Listening at a maximum level of 85 decibels makes it safe to enjoy up to 8 hours of audio a day. The headphones are designed with children in mind and are made from high quality materials to withstand handling, knocks and drops they are bound to endure. Including an in-line microphone and multi-function control button, Planet Buddies headphones allow you to answer/end calls, pause and play music, skip tracks, and activate Siri/Google Now.

Get Creative

The DIY “colour and swap” headphones allow your kiddies to get creative with 24-character cards and 4 crayons to customise and change their design.  Accompanied by an eco-friendly travel case, the headphones are foldable and portable in design allowing minimum bulk and easy transportation. Price: £24.99
