Of course there were a lot of outrageous electronic toys and plastic on top of plastic at the New York Toy Fair, but we also found plenty of safe, thoughtful, eco-friendly new toys about to hit shelves this year.

25 New Eco-Friendly Toys of 2012

Scented Scoops | Ages 3+

One of my favorite Toy Fair finds was the new company BeginAgain toys, which — beyond using natural rubber and sustainable wood — is pioneering a new material called Green Dot. Green Dot is a cornstarch bio product that's 100% compostable, and will be used to make the scented scoops that sit on top of wooden cones in this role-play toy.
Coming Holiday 2012, $30
