It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by how many toxins and chemicals are inundating our lives on a daily basis – especially when it comes to products designed for our precious children. However, it’s easier to avoid these toxins than you’d think, starting with these beautiful, eco-friendly baby toys and teethers.
Green Toys Baby Starter Kit
Green Toys is one of my favorite brands for eco-friendly baby toys!
Made out of 100% recycled plastic (primarily recycled milk jugs!), all Green Toys are powered by imagination *instead* of being powered by batteries. You cannot go wrong with this kit – it’s the perfect baby shower gift!
The kit includes a set of baby “keys,” a set of stacking cups, and a little elephant with a handle and wheels. Toys like this will keep babies occupied for ages, plus these are durable enough to last through more than one kiddo.
This set is definitely a home run!
Green Toys Tide Pool Bath Set
Every baby needs bath toys!
This is a great set of bath toys complete with a little seaweed-patterned basket (which can also be a toy in itself!).
The set includes a starfish, scallop, abalone, snail, squid, and jellyfish, and each allow kiddos to scoop and pour water in different ways.
Going to the beach? Throw these little guys in the seaweed basket and bring them along!
Plan Toys Wooden Elephant Toy
One thing I love about eco-friendly toys, in general, is how beautiful they are – instead of the explosion of colorful plastic that is regular baby toys, eco-friendly toys can almost look like works of art.
This wooden elephant is no exception!
You will love how it looks on display as much as your baby will love playing with it. This toy has posable legs and all natural materials – the ears are made of soft fabric that babies will love to touch, and the body is made from sustainable rubberwood.
Plan Toys Solid Wood Tea Set
I absolutely love this natural take on a tea set! And you truly get your money’s worth – the set includes a teapot, a sugar bowl, a milk pitcher, 2 tea cups, 2 saucers, 2 teaspoons, 2 tea bags and 2 pieces of sugar.
Plan Toys Fruits and Veggies
I especially love this set of fruits and veggies because it comes with a tray and a knife to work on those fine motor skills! Each fruit and veggie comes in two halves that stick together with velcro, so your child can practice “cutting” safely.
Melissa & Doug Alligator Walker
This is a great multitasker, and what mom doesn’t love multitasking?
Help your baby get used to walking and work on their gross motor skills while also providing a super fun toy.
As the walker is pushed, the alligators chomp their mouths open and closed, making a fun sounds for your baby to enjoy. Additionally, there are beads on the walker for baby to play with, helping further hone their fine motor skills!
Chewbeads Car Seat & Stroller Toy
Babies love to chew. On *everything.*
Chewbeads makes fantastic teething products made out of medical-grade silicone (just like pacifiers and bottle nipples!). It’s non-toxic and has no BPA, phthalates, cadmium, lead, or other metals or toxins, so you can feel totally comfortable with your baby gnawing away on this toy.
I especially love this option because it easily attaches to a car seat handle or stroller, ensuring that your kiddo will be happily chewing away while you’re on-the-go!
Ike & Leo Teething Toys
This set of four adorable teething toys (plus a pacifier clip to help keep teethers off the floor!) are made of food-grade silicone and, just like the Chewbeads toys, are BPA, PVC. and phthalate-free.
These teethers are specifically shaped to get back to babies’ molars and help alleviate teething discomfort.
Bonus: they’re safe to throw in the fridge or the freezer!
Double bonus: They’re dishwasher-safe!
Green Tones Endangered Animal Shaker Set
This is a great combination of a toy, a rattle, and a teether!
This animal shaker set is beautifully crafted out of chemical-free rubberwood with a non-toxic, clear-coat finish. Babies will love shaking them, gnawing on them, and playing!
Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Cube
Shape sorters are a must-have toy. They help babies work on fine motor skills as well as developing color and shape recognition, along with early problem-solving skills.
This particular cube comes with 12 brightly-colored shapes that are easy for tiny hands to grasp and manipulate.
I hope you found some eco-friendly toys that your child will enjoy.
