GREEN GIFTS FOR BABIES & TODDLERS
Solid Wooden Building Block Set from LOVEVERY
LOVEVERY makes the best baby play gyms (that don’t look like a circus popped up in your living room). Now they offer play sets and block kits that are safe, non-toxic, and versatile enough to entertain your little one for years to come.
Wooden Climbing Arch from Wiwiurka Toys
With solidly-crafted wooden climbing toys from Wiwiurka, you can create a safe environment for your little one to navigate and learn new skills. We especially love this arch with an adjustable rock-climbing board / slide.
Soft Books Set
Textured, soft, and snuggly – these books can encourage a lifelong love for reading, plus she’ll love chewing on the tabs.
Toddler Wagon / Walker
Made from solid beechwood, the Toddler Wobbler has an adjustable handle and brake so it can adapt to your child’s progress, and rubber non-skid wheels that help keep it under control without marring floor surfaces.
Merino Wool Hand Knit Cowl Neck Cape from Pixie Pebbles
Pixie Pebbles’ collection of soft, cozy, sustainable knits for kids is made in New York. Their handmade styles and colors for little ones are adorable.
Radio Ga Ga Onesie from Etsy
Another fun idea for green gifts for babies and toddlers is to get them things mom and dad enjoy. These tees (and onesies) have matching adult versions.
Middle Earth The Shire Baby Blanket from Oscha Slings
Another parent favorite? Pretty much the entire Middle Earth collection of babywearing wraps, scarves, and blankets from Oscha Slings.
Checker Slip on Vans
Seriously – so cute!
Animal Edition Silicone Baby Teethers
Six food-grade silicone fun shaped items made just for teething relief. Choose between animal and fruit designs.
Handcrafted Vermont Maple Passport Teething Toy
Adorably designed wooden teethers. They’re non-toxic, non-allergenic, naturally antibacterial, and non-splintering.
Wooden Stacking Rocket from Plan Toys
Sustainably made, totally safe, and high quality… you can’t go wrong with any of the items from Plan Toys.
