Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re shopping for non-toxic and eco-friendly toddler toys for your little one this year, then you’ve come to the right place!
Many children’s toys are made from plastic and contain hormone disrupting chemicals, so it’s no surprise that many people are opting for plastic-alternatives—especially since toddlers like to place toys into their mouth.
Plastic toys also have a short lifespan, they clutter your space, and they can’t be recycled—all the more reason to swap them for something sustainable and planet-friendly!
With that said, we’ve created a sustainable toy guide full of unique non-toxic toddler toys that your little one will absolutely love this holiday season!
Why Choose Non-Toxic And Eco-Friendly Toys Over Plastic?
Eco-friendly toddler toys are made of natural or organic material with non-toxic components that are safe to touch. They can also be easily recycled or composted.
Green toddler toys are also ethically and sustainably sourced, and do not leave a negative impact on our environment.
Wood, silicone, natural rubber and organic fabric are all great examples of what eco-friendly toddler toys can be made of, and spark just as much joy as conventional plastic varieties.
With that said, below is our eco-friendly gift guide for sustainable, non-toxic and planet-friendly toddler toys (just in time for Christmas) that you and your child will love!
