Earth Day is April 22 and to celebrate TTPM has picked six of the best eco-friendly toys and gear for your baby. From wooden toys to earth-friendly dolls and even eco-friendly teethers, these items are not only great for reducing your carbon footprint, but also totally on-trend.
1.) The Thermal Baby Bottle from Pacific Baby is a cool stainless steel baby bottle that converts from bottle to sippy cup to big kid water bottle by simply switching out the bottle attachments. This one bottle has the potential to stay with your child from the baby stage through their teens and beyond.
2.) While Grandma didn’t make the Organic Rainbow Bunny Rattle from Pebble, its sweet embroidered face and gentle built-in rattle give it that handmade feel. It’s knitted in white organic cotton with rainbow colors that use OEKO-TEX-certified dyes.The bunny’s long limbs and floppy ears make it perfect for babies to tote along wherever they go.
3.) To keep baby busy and learning, the Garden Activity Cube from EverEarth is up to the task. This wooden activity toy, which is painted with non-toxic, water-based paints, has gears, counting beads, and friendly wooden bugs that encourage early fine motor skills.
4.) The Shape Sorter from Green Toys is a large wobbly shaper sorter that is made from 100-percent recycled materials. Its large pieces make it easy for babies to manipulate, while its wobbly structure gives it a surprise factor that also reinforces cause and effect.
5.) Every baby needs a take-along pal and the Good Earth Girls Mermaid from Greenpoint Brands is a whimsical friend with embroidered detailing and bright red yarn hair. This soft mermaid doll is made with natural cotton fibers, low eco-impact dyes, and recycled fiber filling.
6.) A rattle is a classic baby toy, and EverEarth has a new Rattle Toy Flower Stack just in time for spring. This wooden rattle makes gentle rattle sounds, good for baby’s gentle ears, and because the rattle is made from FSC-certified natural beechwood, it’s also good for the environment.
