Why choose eco toys over plastic?
As an environmentally conscious consumer you would know the damages plastic has on the environment, but are you aware of the possible dangers to your little ones? Plastic toys are made up of unnatural chemical composites that can leach into your child’s environment and even be ingested if chewing on them occurs. Toys made from natural materials avoids all of this and encourages your children to be active and creative, so many everyday toys have distracting bells and whistles that prevents the natural creativity process. Our eco toys encourage children to move by only being interactive if they are, they will also last for years to come so your children’s children can use them!
