Fun Eco Friendly Toddler Toys

Updated on October 1, 2014

Eco Friendly Toys Toddlers Love

Toddlers are curious precious creatures who learn about the world by testing and experimenting with whatever is in their reach. This includes play and activity toys which they put in their mouths. Here are some eco friendly toddler toys that are safe and will keep your child entertained.

Featured : Green Toys My First Stacker, Colors May Vary

This is made in USA from recycled milk bottles and no BPA, phthalates or PVC. Safe for teething babies.

Wooden Toy Car Ramp and Racer

If you find yourself constantly saying "no" to your child while at play, this will give you peace of mind. The curved ramp racer is made with eco-friendly durable rubberwood and finished with bright water based colors that are non toxic and kid safe.

Toddlers will love to watch the wooden race cars (included with purchase) zoom down the four tracks in continuous motion making clicking sounds.

When your child gets tired of playing with the wooden cars you can use other objects like small bouncing balls, his favorite Matchbox cars and other wheeled or circular toys.

Note : The race cars are small in size and may not be suitable for children under 3 years
