We all want to get our kids the best toys this Christmas, ones that they will love and cherish for months and years to come, and not just be discarded after a few weeks, or even days, of play.
I believe that the best toys are ones that encourage children to use their imagination, and inspire creative and pretend play, instead of doing the “playing” for the child, which many of today’s toys with batteries do. And if you can find a safe and non-toxic version, made from recycled, sustainable, or fair-trade materials — that is the best of both worlds!
So, here are my top picks for green toys, and a few other great green gifts, for toddlers this holiday season:
