Show responsibility and buy green toys!
Here is why this is so important:
- natural toys do not contain lead (harmful to baby and the environment)!
- eco-friendly toys do not contain any other harmful substances such as formaldehydes, PVC or Phthalates!
- they are non-toxic!
- the production of natural toys does not pollute the environment
Do not hesitate and don't think about a few dollars extra - get environmental friendly and safe toys and help to make a difference and a better future for our kids.
Following is a selection of great green toys and the best green baby gifts. Choose one of these - or any other natural toy - and rest assured that your toy is all-natural, absolutely safe and eco-friendly.
When thinking about buying green toys, we should first look into the company with the same name: Green Toys. This company uses recycled milk containers as the main ingredient to create their cute baby toys. The milk containers are re-processed into high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It's one of the safest, cleanest plastics around. And everything is made in the USA. Local production of toys means that far fewer miles are used for transportation. Moreover, all Green Toys products are
packaged in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable. Green Toys do not have anything for newborns in their product range but they do have great 'my first' products for 6 months and up:
MY FIRST STACKER - this stacker has a safe no center pole design and comes with 8 colorful, stackable nesting pieces
STACKING CUPS - these 6 graduated cups are great to use in the bath tub or also in the sand box. Baby can scoop and pour water, build towers by turning upside down or just sort the sizes to nest. These stacking cups even teach basic counting and math concepts. Each cup is numbered on the bottom from 1 to 6 and if you, for example, fill up cups 2 and 3 it will equal the volume of cup 5. A great Green Toy that also makes a great green baby gift!
SCOOP AND POUR TUG BOAT - this tugboat is safe for babies from 6 months and it is also fun in the tub for older kids! The boat floats while water fills the hull and pours from the spout.
