Time for a Toy Upgrade
This weeks picks for the greenest toys out there are finally here. My little Bossy Bean is growing out of her baby toys and is more than eager to explore and fiddle with a new set of brain teasing toys. No longer do the little stuffed rattlers satisfy her for longer than a few seconds. Then it’s slammed down onto the floor and followed by a look as it to say, “C’mon mom, that’s all you got?”
At 9 months old I found it to be a bit of a challenge. I needed something that made her happy – colorful, stimulating, and ever so happy. She’s too smart for her own good so something needs to be intricate, time consuming, but not so complicated that it’ll discourage further exploration. I also needed something that makes mama happy – safe, natural, eco-friendly, n baby happiness (so everything above as well), of course. So, a-researching I went.
After (as per usl) turning the internet upside-down, I’ve come up with a collection of some of my favorite stores providing safe, fun, and educational toys for little ones that are good for the wallet, the brain, and the planet. I love these items not only because they are great for imagination and development but because the companies selling them so obviously care about the environment as well as you, me, and our families. I’m excited to introduce you Bees to my latest additions of baby and kids toy stores to the list.
Featured Green and Natural (Toy) Stores
Todays featured stores are Magic Beans and The Ultimate Green Store. There are so many things to choose from that, like I just did, you can spend hours upon hours checking out everything offered, reading great (and, just as helpful, not so great) reviews, and checking out suggested items as per your search. They also have fantastic Weekly Deals on Green Baby Toys!
We love that imagination doesn’t run on batteries, but we also know that sometimes a couple of batteries can elevate a toy to a whole new level of fun. When we are evaluating toys, we look for things that inspire creative interactions – between kids and the toy, between kids and kids, between kids and adults. Or all of the above.
Many of these toys are made from natural and/or recycled materials. Plastics used are food-safe, contain no BPA, phthalates, PVC, or external coatings and use soy and natural based paints and inks with recycled and recyclable materials.
We carry products from many of the world’s leading manufacturers and designers of sustainable, natural, organic, recycled, eco-friendly goods- products that are made with your health and the health of our planet in mind.
The Ultimate Green Store Green Baby Toys
Many are also recycled diminishing our mark on nature and the planet, helping save on greenhouse emissions and energy used. How is that for amazing? You can’t help but feel good about your kids getting the best from … well – the best!
