8 Brands For Natural & Sustainable Baby Toys
We round up some of our favourite brands offering the most sustainable, and beautiful, toys for little ones. Expect to find pieces made with natural organic materials and painted without toxins that are totally safe for play, and kind on our planet too.
1. Bonet et Bonet
Craftsmanship, quality and functionality are at the core of Danish baby brand, Bonet et Bonet. Their products are designed and developed from natural materials such as cotton, kapok and cashmere that are not only kind to little ones, but to the planet too. We especially love with their musical seahorse which is crafted from organic cotton and plays a little lullaby when you pull on the tail.
2. Lexy Pexy
Created by a mother who was looking for natural alternatives to teethers and toys for her new baby, Lexy Pexy’s wooden teethers come in an assortment of adorable designs. These teethers are made from natural, sustainable and non-splintering rock hard maple wood that helps to make sore gums happy. Each piece is sealed with natural and eco-friendly beeswax and is BPA and phthalate free.
3. Organic Zoo
One of our favourite labels for organic baby clothing and accessories, we also love Organic Zoo for their wooden toys which are so beautiful they could double as decoration! The paints and dyes used are all non-toxic and your toy will arrive to you beautifully packaged in recyclable cardboard, all ready for gifting!
Fabelab is a Scandinavian children’s interior brand who create responsibly made, high quality and innovative products. Many of their toys are made from organic cotton as opposed to unsustainable synthetic materials which is unfortunately the case for lots of children’s toys on the market today. Their Buddy Bunny toys are made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and are ideal for both play and comfort.
5. Raduga Grëz
Created by parents, who make toys for parents, these beautiful toys are truly works of art. Each one is carefully handcrafted in Russia by third-generation carpenters from solid wood and painted using non-toxic paints. We especially love their tea time and bakery sets!
Following the realisation that ‘90% of children’s toys are still manufactured using plastic, with a lot of this plastic not suitable for recycling’, Envirotoy made it their mission to curate the very best plastic-free sustainable toys for little ones. As well as their little wooden toys, we especially love their bath time toys which are made from natural rubber, and are 100% plastic free and 100% non toxic.
7. Le Toy Van
Ethically made from sustainable tactile materials, and designed in Great Britain, these toys are designed to encourage creative long lasting play to be past down from generation to generation. Le Toy Van use and replant a by-product of the rubber industry, Rubberwood, which they, amongst other woods, recycle into eco-friendly, high-quality wooden toys.
Born in Barcelona, Oli&Carol offer 100% natural and bacteria-free toys perfect for teething, bath time and sensory play. Each toy is unique, having been handmade and painted by skilled Artisans using natural pigments. These toys are made in one piece without any holes to prevent the creation of bacteria and mold inside, making them totally safe for little ones.
