Re: Green, baby toys! Help

HABA, and Melissa & Doug offer a wide variety of wooden toys (not sure on how green they are, but they last forever...). Green Toys is a good brand as well, they offer a lot of recycled plastic products. I have found all of these at mainstream stores. They cost a little more but they are pretty durable as well. Here are links to a few sites I have stumbled across

http://www.melissaanddoug.com
http://www.greentoys.com/toys.html (look up retailers in the USA.. there are tons)
http://thegreennursery.com

I have found that buying DD toys that aren't green or are more mainstream isn't a horrible thing. But they do tend to multiply and they break constantly or do not get used. My best toy purchases for her have been a play kitchen (home made) with play food (fabric/wood), play dishes (green toys).

Since you spend a little more money on these toys, you are less likely to purchase MORE toys than you need. DD loves things she can learn with, use her imagination with and anything that she can pretend with/draw with is always a big hit.
