We’ve searched far and wide to find the best organic toy brands and want to share them with you to add to your list (make sure to check it twice)!
Sustainability is a big part of how Begin Again toys are created. They construct their entire catalog from sustainably harvested wood or rubber, with the occasional use of eco-friendly plastic. And guess what? Absolutely none of their toys need batteries (halleluiah!). Begin Again does this to cut their environmental waste while both urging children to use more imagination and promoting well-balanced play. If your kiddos are clamoring for unique toys that will fit in their stocking—and with plenty of room for cheer!—the Tinker Totter Robot Character Set is sure to be a big hit.
Playing with dough is such a fun and rewarding activity for your child, but not all brands on the market use organic ingredients. Eco-Kids breaks the mold with their use of non-toxic ingredients in their natural play dough products. Each Eco-Dough set from Eco-Kids uses organic and natural vegetable, fruit, and plant extracts instead of dyes. Not to mention? Eco-Kids also incorporates essential oils that emit a nice subtle aroma. Their product catalog isn’t just dough, either! Take a look at their eco-face paint, eco-finger paint or eco-crayons.
Where many toy brands are going digital or integrating electronics, PlanToys focuses on kids toys that have a positive environmental impact. With nearly four decades of experience under their belt, PlanToys knows how to build some pretty cool wooden gems made from reclaimed rubber wood that infuses the world with positive vibes. Each product is built with the purpose of teaching kids to respect and preserve natural resources. Out of their entire product catalog, we must say that their Balancing Cactus took our eye and is sure to make a great stocking stuffer!
