There are many reasons why we would rather buy organic toys for our children and as gifts. Here are our top 5:
1. Good for the Earth
Organic toys are generally made in a way that is sustainable for the Earth. By buying organic toys, you are helping to protect the planet your children and grandchildren will be growing up on long after you are gone. Teaching them about protecting the Earth from birth will help teach them to care more for the planet we all call home.
2. Good for Your Baby
There are so many chemicals used in the toys many of us let our babies play with that it can be quite scary and overwhelming. Which ones are safe? Which ones are dangerous? We take care with what they eat, we should also pay close attention to the toys they play with. Buying organic toys will let your mind be at ease and give you one less danger of the modern world to worry about.
Believe it or not, organic toys are NOT hard to find. And contrary to popular belief, they will NOT cost you an arm and a leg. Dandelion toys are a great example of a fair price point for a great organic product. They're one of our favourite organic toys on the market. Many stores, like us, strive to carry the best in organic toys for your children. If you look for organic toys, you'll see they aren't too hard to find.
In addition to being easily accessible and reasonably priced, organic toys come in all shapes and sizes and are FUN for your children! At Along Came Baby, we have everything from Haba plush animals and building blocks to Dandelion's rattles. Organic toys often stimulate children's minds more than other toys because the people who make organic toys inherently care more for the wellbeing of your child and want to stimulate their minds in every way possible.
