Our Favourite Eco-Friendly Toys

Fun toys made with the environment in mind

It’s becoming easier for parents to make environmentally friendly choices when shopping for their children, especially with more and more companies focusing on sustainability. Toy manufacturers are no exception, and many are putting a lot of informed decision-making into production, from using recycled and sustainable materials to natural and non-toxic ingredients. The items we selected for this round up, like many other eco-friendly toys, are unique, captivating and safe—your children are sure to love them and you will feel good about purchasing them!

Begin Again Eco YoYo, $4

These eco-friendly YoYo’s are made from natural rubber wood and feature brightly coloured water-based stains. We love that Begin Again has gone back to the basics and recreated the classic version of the YoYo by leaving out the complex features of newer styles, yet remains modern by using attractive colours that kids will adore.

eco-kids Eco-Dough, $28

These beautifully coloured doughs come in a pack of five and contain all natural ingredients including plant, fruit and vegetable extracts, as well as essential oils. Kids get to use their imagination to mold cool creations and can start over whenever a new idea takes form.

Green Toys Tool Set, Pink, $30

We love the unconventional colours of this 15-piece tool set, as well as the fact that it is made from 100% recycled plastic from milk jugs. Green Toys carries their eco-friendly mandate all the way to the packaging of their products as well, using only 100% recycled cardboard (no plastic fasteners here!) and printing with soy ink.

Hape Happy Family Geometrics Play House, $48

This colourful dollhouse is made up of four separate geometric pieces that can be rearranged to create a new house design each time. Furniture and two dolls are included with the house, all of which are painted with water-based paint. We love the uniqueness of this toy—anything goes when it comes to playing with this dollhouse!

Plan Toys Musical Band, $70

This attractive mini drum set is made from sustainable rubber wood and uses water-based dyes for colour. Little ones can unleash their inner rock star while nurturing their creativity and practicing important skills such as hand-eye coordination and attentiveness.

Uncle Goose Count and Stack Number Wooden Blocks, $25

These numbered wooden blocks are great for teaching children to count while also allowing them to get creative and build scenes using the connecting images on the sides. The bright, attractive colours are printed with non-toxic ink and the wood is sourced from quick-growing basswood to create a safe and sustainable toy that is sure to offer little ones hours of educational fun.
