Safe and Ecofriendly Holiday Gifts

I am still procrastinating and haven’t even bought one gift yet, but I came across a great list of sites that have wonderful Baby Bodyguards approved gifts this morning, and I thought I would share.

Check out Oompa Toys . The Wisconsin-based company offers thousands of child- and Earth-safe items. Theit website is easy to use and  you can buy products ranging from toys, dollhouses and stuffed animals to learning games, musical instruments and art supplies to kitchen play accessories, kids’ furniture and tricycles, many items made with organic or recycled materials.

Another great source for kids’ toys is Washington-based Earthentree , which sells dozens of pull toys, rattles, stackers and other goodies to stimulate young hands and minds. All of their products are handcrafted by “fair trade” (fairly compensated) artisans in India using sustainably harvested wood and natural vegetable-based dyes. I also like Hazelnut Kids . Hazelnut Kids specializes in natural, earth-friendly wooden and organic cotton toys for kids and babies, and even offers gift-wrapping with recycled and recyclable paper.
