With the use of natural materials, Earth becomes a better place to live for everyone which includes our kids too. To practice this, there are many companies coming up with various natural toys. Whether you are looking to promote learning, develop fine motor skills or, encourage creativity, there are some awesome range of earth-friendly toys in the market. Here are five reasons to help you choose natural and safe toys for your babies.
As we all know, babies explore everything with their mouths and, plastic toys especially the cheap ones can cause irreparable harm to their developing minds and bodies. Plastic toys tend to contain toxic chemicals like Biphenyl A and phthalates which are known to be endocrine disrupters associated with birth defects, autoimmune disease and neurological and reproductive damage.
Toys made from natural materials are extremely baby-safe. They are often handcrafted by local artisans. They keep alive a tradition and often each toy has its own little quirkiness that is often missing in mass produced plastic toys. When you buy local toys made from natural materials, you also reduce your carbon foot print, by reducing transportation and logistical costs.
Wooden toys are timeless, durable, easier to fix, and are safe toys for babies. People choose plastic because sometimes wooden toys appear to be expensive but, in the long run the wooden toys are often passed down to generations. They are more charming and aesthetically pleasing.
So, let’s do our bit for our coming generations by going for eco-friendly toys:
