You read that right – following over half a million emails sent by you, Barbie has realised that toying with deforestation is no game. Mattel, the company behind Barbie, has decided that being involved in the destruction of Indonesia's rainforests is bad for business as well as the planet, and has dropped deforestation from its production line.

Word famous toy company Hasbro, makers of Monopoly and the Transformers, have had their key event showcasing this year’s possible Christmas bestsellers disrupted by environmental campaigners over the company’s refusal to stop using rainforest packaging for their toys.

The event, held in London’s West End, is billed as a chance for Hasbro’s key retailers to “come and see the top must have toys and games from Hasbro this Christmas”.
