Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re shopping for 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!

Why Choose Eco-Friendly Toys Over Plastic?

Eco-friendly toddler toys are made of natural or organic material with non-toxic components and 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 they don’t require batteries.

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!

Are you striving to make a switch to more natural and nontoxic toys for your little ones? You are not alone!

Many health-conscious parents are coming to the realization that kids spend a lot of time cuddling and sleeping with their toys—teething babies in particular enjoy biting them.

Now, most parents don’t think that those are big concerns, but, mainstream dolls have potential to be filled with hazardous material like flame retardants, BPA and PVC—all of which are considered to be hormone disrupting chemicals.

Because of these concerns, parents are opting for healthier alternatives when it comes to toys, especially dolls. And luckily, many eco-friendly brands are creating nontoxic and sustainable dolls that children can enjoy safely, without sacrificing any fun. Because let’s face it, aesthetics are important as well.

Though they may be more expensive than regular dolls, eco-friendly dolls are worth the investment. They are ethically made out of nontoxic and organic material, are void of synthetic chemicals, and are typically hand-made, which means there’s more attention to detail.

Dolls also help foster emotional development and teach empathy, which is an important trait. Hence, it’s a great toy for both genders to play with.
