The Eco-Friendly Toy Guide

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah!

I love the holidays! Although I’m not into the whole commercialization of the season, I do like the Christmas music (Temptations and Boyz II Men are always on repeat), drinking hot chocolate, and just the whole holiday spirit in the air. This year was Benjamin’s first Christmas and I was all over the place trying to make sure it was a great experience for him.  I know he’s just six months old so, he won’t remember a thing but at least he’ll have pics to look back on.

My husband and I gifted him with some savings bonds (have to start early with the financial literacy!), clothes, shoes, and just a few toys.  It was a great day spent with some of my in-laws since we spent Thanksgiving in Florida with my family.

In my search for toys for Benjamin, I looked for ones that would be educational and safe for him since he is also at the stage where he puts everything in his mouth. I’m sharing some great eco-friendly toy companies that have toys for babies without all of the BPA’s, lead, and other toxic materials.

  1. Baby Earth 
  2. Green Toys
  3. Maple Landmark Toys
  4. Under the Nile

I know there are probably others out there but, these are the ones I am most familiar with.

Do you look for eco-friendly, natural, green toys for your kids? Which ones are your favorites?
