I never worried about our stuffed toys being organic toys. Up until a few days ago, Bossy was uninterested in her stuffies for more than 5-minute increments, if that. She might have a formal tea party with her bear pals or wheel around a giraffe in her doll stroller but that’s about as far as it went. If she did invite a plush to join us for a bedtime story and song, it was just that after which she promptly threw the guest out of bed with a bid of, “Buh-bye!” Other than that, they sat quietly on a high shelf keeping each other company (don’t feel sad for them, there are so many that we had to donate some1).
Well, just about a week ago (5 days), she started a strange (to me) tradition of putting her stuffed animals in bed with her, covering them all up under the covers with her, and intently looking and talking with them long after I had gone from the room post our bedtime reading, lullaby, and milk.
What a sweet ritual. After three days of this routine, it became more and more apparent that this ritual is here to stay and I am okay with that. It’s really cute. What I am not okay with is the adverse health effects that stuffed animals can have on little bodies and systems if they are not organic. These are seemingly transparent evils so I thought I’d quickly show you why we’ve switched to not only organic foods but organic textiles, cleaners, and everything else possible. Then we’ll get to the fun stuff, they toys!
Now that you have a little ‘know’ under your belt here are our FAVORITE organic stuffed animals. One of which we have. One of them is actually in our online cart at the moment waiting to be purchased and shipped. The rest? The rest are in our birthday registry in case grandma or auntie are looking for a healthy stuffed animal to gift for Bossy and of course, they are also collected and presented here just for you and your babies… because they deserve the best!
In case you’re curious, we use MyRegistry for all of our registry needs because you can add gift wishes from ANY online store and there are a number of registry variations like wedding registries, baby registries, birthday registries, and everything in between. Give it a shot, it’s free!
So here are the best selling and cutest organic stuffed animals available, in no particular order.
John n Tree Organic
These are seriously adorable and squeezable. With a focus on organic, bamboo, and eco-friendly products, John n Tree Organics (an organic branch of El Korea brand) creates a fair trade environment throughout their company while churning out the most conformable and adorable baby (and adult) products. Of course, our focus here are the toys and there are quite a few to choose from. Oh, and I also LOVE that they offer up unbleached organic toys! I guess, for me the simpler the better.
Bears for Humanity
Renju and Vijay are the founders and creators (along with their extensive and creative team) of Bears for Humanity with a mission to bring the safest toys to your little ones (and theirs). The best companies, in my opinion, are started with your own heart in mind. Bears for Humanity started with a personal story of how Renju received her first teddy from her brother’s first paycheck and she never forgot the gratitude and love she felt. Once she had two of her own her mother bear instinct to protect her cubs from synthetic plastic furred stuffed animals and provide kids in need with a bit of love that they so desperately need.
This is why we love this company:
- Made in the USA
- Organic cotton and hemp materials
- Safe for children and environment
- Buy one give one program which donates a bear to a child in need when you purchase one for yours
Miyim Organic Toys
Miyim has partnered with Dr. Seuss and Disney to bring a bit of familiarity to your kids from their favorite stories while keeping it these organic toys… well, organic. They exclusively use organic cotton and hemp to bring the most adorable plush toys into the arms of even more adorable kids. I especially love the plush dolls that they have, particularly the mermaid. Though that might have something to do with my mild mermaid obsession. The company also offers stroller toys, teethers, and gift sets so you are sure to find what you need from Miyim.
DorDor & GorGor Organic Toys
As with many companies, this one was born out of a mother’s need for healthy alternatives to our everyday textile. After realizing that her babies were allergic to the fabrics in their clothes, this mom set out on a mission to create a company producing the purest organic cotton available, providing a 100% chemical free, all-natural clothing & apparels for babies. The toys that they produce are no exception. You’ll also find these toys quite colorful and lovely but don’t worry, the colors are dyed with 100% natural ingredients such as comfrey, indigo, and other flowers.
Bless Nature Organic Plush Toys
These organic toys and playthings are extremely well made with no buttons or other small things attached that cause a choking hazard for babies and small kids. I fell instantly in love with their classic toy look and I love that they are made with 100% organic materials. The earth is well cared for and never subjected to any pesticide treatments. Instead, the company uses ladybugs to control their pest presence which is the most natural, healthy and earth-friendly manner. The cotton is even picked by hand and everyone involved is extremely eco-aware. This makes my heart sing!
Comfort Buddy Organic Toys
A friend of mine has this amazing looking rustic plush rabbit that I was so taken with this organic toy, it was almost embarrassing. I don’t know what it is about this guy that has me going bananas but he definitely on our wish list of things to get Bossy in case anyone is ever stumped come birthday or holiday time.
Robbie the Rabit is extremely well made, with superior stitching and it shows in the details. With that in mind you know this guy will last and last for years to come no matter what adventures he goes on with your little one. I have my fingers crossed for the holidays (hint, hint… kidding).
He’s really the only one that I was able to find by this company and that’s just fine because he is awesome and pretty gives the other organic toys a run for their money!
Apple Park Organic Toys
Oh, em gee! How I love this company. One of the biggest reasons is HUGE selection of organic toys and plushies! From crib to the entire earth, this company takes their eco-responsibility seriously. They are driven and dedicated to bringing families endearing, unique, and stimulating toys while remaining organic and sustainably responsible. What more could you ask for?
