Eco-Friendly Toys for Young Kids

By Belinda Romano

As a parent, your number one concern is keeping your children safe. Whether it's keeping an eye on them or making healthy choices for them, you do everything you can for the sake of their well-being. This also includes making sure that playtime is as safe as it is fun, and with so many toys from which to choose, knowing which are the best for your kids can be a little daunting. And if your idea of safe play also includes choosing toys that are also safe for the earth, then you might feel like it's even tougher to narrow down your options. The good news is that you have plenty of great options. Plus, we're here to help. Check out our playtime picks of fun, wholesome and eco-friendly toys for your playful little ones.

Green Toys Recycling Truck


What's green and good for the earth? This little toy recycling truck! Made from recycled milk cartons and soy inks, it's the perfect toy for the eco-conscious child.

PlanToys Eco Home


Dollhouses may not be new, but this up-to-date version comes complete with a solar panel, wind turbine and electric scooter, not to mention organic rubberwood construction.

Hop, Skip and a Jump Ropes


If getting your kids to be outdoors and do a little exercise is your number one priority, a plain ol' jump rope will do the trick. But why not get an eco-friendly one with a rope made from 100% cotton and recycled plastic handles such as this one?

Zubels Eco-Friendly Plush Whale


Plush toys never go out of style, and this adorable hand-knitted plush is made from 100% organic cotton yarn and dyed with low-impact (meaning it uses less natural resources) dyes, making this a great eco-friendlly alternative to most plush toys.

Sevi Xylophone Eco-Friendly Toy


Music is a great way to stimulate children's development and introducing them to musical instruments at a young age is a fun and healthy way to play. This eco-friendly xylophone is handmade with wood and painted using vegetable dyes.

Boikido Eco-Friendly Wooden Memory Game


Simple yet stimulating, memory games are a children's favorite and make for great parent/child bonding play. This adorable memory game is constructed from FSC certified wood and painted with water-based paints, making this a truly eco-friendly toy.

Wonderworld Safari Toy Chest


If all your children's toys are eco-friendly, wouldn't it make sense for them to be stored inside a toy chest that's equally green? This fun and colorful storage chest is made from environmentally-friendly rubberwood and uses strictly non-toxic paints, dyes and lacquers, as well as formaldehyde-free glue.
