If you are a mother and anything like me then you are always looking for the best eco friendly toddler toys. We evaluate these brands and toys by the way they are made, the companies values and most importantly how much our toddler likes them and uses them in his every day life.

1- MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

We absolutely love this wooden drum kit that we purchased. For us musical instruments play a great part of what we want our little one to grow up around! We have flutes, Caracas, harmonicas and even a baby piano but what he has most fun on is banging those drums. This store has so many fantastic ideas you will surely find something you love and you can search by age which makes it all that much easier to navigate, especially when buying gifts for others.

Musical Instruments are really great for learning hand eye coordination and if you don’t mind a little noise making these are well worth the fun. This is also a really great eco-friendly set or this adorable Banjo.

2- WOODEN RAILWAY SET

We got ours second hand from several mothers. What is great about them is they are all generally compatible with each other. I am not sure who loves this toy more our son or his dad, wether it be playing alone or with friends this toy provides hours of fun. It never gets boring because you can always set up new tracks. After doing some extensive research we found a few sets that we wanted to recommend. I truly recommend this for both boys and girls!

3-PUZZLES

We believe puzzles are really an amazing toy! You can always entice your children by getting prints of things they love! Everything from floor puzzles to wooden puzzles. They are really great for developing perseverance, problem solving and eye hand coordination. Overcoming the challenges of puzzling gives them a sense of pride and self esteem. We highly recommend starting early with the puzzling world. Our favourites so far are by Melissa and Doug This store also has hundreds of other things to choose from so have fun browsing.

4-TOY KITCHEN

This is truly another all time favourite for us and so many parents we know. Whether you have a boy or a girl, kids love watching and emulating their parents. Unless you are extremely blessed with someone that cooks for you chances are your kids see it a lot and want to be part of the fun. Our son will make me full meals in his little kitchen and he really takes great pride in cutting his fruit and vegetables on his cutting board. As far as I can remember from friends with older kids this is a toy that lasts a long time because even 6 and 7 year olds have fed me their make believe meals when visiting friends. These are a few we found that we really liked.

5- KITE

This is the most beautiful kite story by Little Cloud Kites, we like to call this a boomerang gift. It is a magical experience for your toddler but also an amazing experience for you. This is a kite that you will hopefully have in your family for life. It also comes with a lifetime guarantee, they will fix your kite for as long as you own it. Beautifully handcrafted, with eco-friendly wood, organic cotton and a perfect carrying case. This is the gift of a lifetime.

We hope you like our very special selection of toys for the little ones!

Sustainably yours,

Chill n Feel- Super Soft Pima Cotton Baby Clothes and Handmade Toys

Absolutely love everything about ChillnFeel

This brand deserves its very own page on our blog. Not only because we absolutely love all their products, and they make some of the very best Sustainable baby clothes we ever found but also because we have been collaborating with them right from the start. We are proud ambassadors of this brand, and always will be.

Their beautiful clothes are made from Pima Cotton, which is a breathable fabric extremely good for sensitive skin, and other skin conditions. It keeps you warm in the winter and stays cool in the summer. We first learned about this fabric from Chill n Feel and absolutely love it.

Martina, the owner of Chill n Feel and I have become friends, and although we have not physically met, we have accompanied each other over the last few years. I want to reiterate that Pima cotton, which is one of the main fabrics they use, I am obsessed with…. it wears so well with time too. I have been trying to convince her do do a mama version because I am kind of jealous of Atlantis and his über adorable comfy pyjamas!

Gonzalo the monkey, pictured here, has traveled the world with us and he still looks as great as the first day we got him. We also are accompanied by the pirate and Octopus, they kind of belong to the family. These handmade toys are made with love in Peru and are truly the product of detailed and precise craftsmanship.

Another amazing benefit of ChillnFeel is that the baby clothes are made in a way that the little ones can grow into it. With an adorable detail on the fold on the bottom of the pants. All the time keeping mamas happy and confident about purchasing these products.

Atlantis is now fully potty trained and still insist on wearing them today…. to my surprise he looked at me when pulling his pants up and said ¨Mummy, I love these pants!¨That to me really just says it all. Thank you for being a part of our family and growing with us Chill n Feel.

We look forward to seeing YOU too enjoy your little ones in ChillnFeel.

Sustainably yours,

Eco Couple

Green Kid Crafts

Do you ever look at Insta Moms, or pinterest and think I would like to do these fun and creative things with my kids? Well look no further we found your one stop shop to eco-friendy, sustainable, super cool and fun things to do with your little ones!

Honestly there is so much to love about this company and its practices. So let me introduce you to Green Kid Craft. Not only does the company plant a tree for every box sold! So we are already so behind this project…. the founder Penny Bauder, is an environmental scientist and leader in conservation, sustainability, youth education, and activism. Someone you would be happy your children to spend some time with.

In these very odd times and the current situation the world is in it is more important than ever that we nurture our youth with positive influences and fun projects to keep their mind on things that are nourishing and fulfilling, especially if they are currently home schooled, or sitting in front of a screen for virtual school all day. No matter how old, even us as adults can benefit from zoning out into this type of creative time! I think that sometimes I get more excited than my son does about art and crafts projects!!!

These boxes are full of creative projects that bring out the best in our little ones, while also teaching them about the environment, the value of sustainability and ways to better our planet. I cannot be happier about this! And there are so many options to choose from. Wether you would like to gift someone a one time box or simply want to subscribe to an awesome program. Made from eco-friendly materials each box includes 4-6 projects filled with creative ideas and project to keep you entertained for quite some time.

¨Leading by example is the best way to help our children learn¨. – Green Kid Craft

So if you have reverted to using the screen, try replacing that time with one of these activities and help kids grow into little scientists, engineers and inventors! Which at the end of the day is so much more rewarding for you and them.

Have you heard of STEAM (Science & Technology, interpreted through Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements.”) You have nothing to loose by giving it a try and your kids have everything to gain! We absolutely recommend Green Kid Crafts

La bonita Jirafa Sophie 🇪🇸

Pulsa aqui para comprar en amazon

En nuestra búsqueda de juguetes naturales, un día dimos con una Jirafa. Resulta que nuestro pequeño la adora, la gente la conoce, se llama La Jirafa Sophie.

La jirafa Sophie en Hawaii

Hace unos cuantos años un señor llamado Rampeau tuvo la feliz idea de hacer un animalito para los niños algo más exótico que los clásicos perro-gato. Apareció Sophie, llamada así porque fue “concebida” un 18 de Septiembre, día de Santa Sofía; lleva ya varias generaciones entre los niños de todo el mundo, que la disfrutan escuchándola sonar cuando aprietan su vientre o cabeza.

La empresa Vulli, situada en los Alpes Franceses, conserva celosamente el secreto de fabricación de este fantástico juguete.

Sophie la jirafa se sigue fabricando “artesanalmente” ya que se requieren más de 14 operaciones manuales para realizarla.

Está hecha de látex, que es natural, flexible, impermeable, aislante y agradable en cuanto a su tacto y olor.

Nuestra sorpresa es que allá donde vamos, la gente nombra a la jirafa por su nombre, Sophie es conocida en el mundo entero y a nuestro pequeño le encanta comerle las patitas y los cuernecitos, se ríe con ella, es fácil de agarrar desde muy temprana edad, pesa poco, en fin, es perfecta.

Desde Ecocouple proponemos por un lado el reciclaje de juguetes, y por otro que intentemos comprar juguetes hechos de forma respetuosa con el medio ambiente, esto es, que se descomponen en un corto plazo, desaparecen y no dejan huella; Sophie cumple con ésta última.

En España se puede comprar en https://bbgrenadine.com/es/ 💕 Si os gusta este articulo a lo mejor también os interesa el de Hevea.

Un Abrazo,

Eco Couple

Hevea Planet 🇪🇸

Desde @ecocouple seguimos buscando marcas en el mercado que elaboran sus productos de forma sostenible y con materiales no tóxicos.

Recientemente nos hemos topado con la marca danesa Hevea, tambien vendida en España.

Hevea Planet nace del deseo de una mamá de crear productos no tóxicos para bebés y que a la vez fuesen sostenibles. Hechos exclusivamente de hevea, el árbol del caucho, sus mordedores, chupetes y juguetes, se hacen con respeto por el planeta.

A partir de los 3-4 meses, los bebés empiezan a llevarse las manos a la boca, y rápidamente no son solo mas manos, se lo llevan todo… y los juguetes, ¿no deberíamos mirar de qué material están hechos?

Así, el mordedor Kawan de Hevea está hecho de caucho natural y está pintado con pigmentos de plantas naturales. Es de gran alivio para las encías irritadas cuando el bebé lo muerda. Kawan es suave, ligero y fácil de agarrar

Kawan es suave, ligero y fácil de agarrar. Atlantis está encantado!

Hevea1

El diseño de una pieza no tiene grietas o juntas, lo que evita la acumulación de bacterias, suciedad y moho.

Hevea2

Y como no, el artículo numero uno para los bebés, el chupete:

Hevea3

Estamos deseando ver a nuestro pequeño jugando con los juguetes de Hevea para el baño.. aquí creemos que lo más importante es que el juguete no acumule moho, para ello Hevea hace sus juguetes de baño sin agujero en la base.

Bien, hasta aquí llegamos hoy; seguimos buscando las mejores opciones para nuestro bebé, y os iremos contando sobre los productos que encontramos en nuestro camino.
