Tips on Buying Organic Baby Toys

May 31, 2008
Organic baby toys are now becoming increasingly popular with parents because they are not only safe for the child to pay with, but they are also much kinder on the environment as well. Yet although they may be made using organic materials these toys can still provide a young baby with hours of fun.

Along with more traditional wooden toys made using sustainable wood there are plenty of soft toys that one can get as well. Plus as we all know babies have a habit of actually putting everything in their mouths and buying toys, which are free of chemicals, are ideal for them.

When looking to buy any kinds of organic baby toys for your child there are certain requirements that need to be met for them to be classed as such. Below we take you through some of these requirements that should hopefully help you when it comes to finding out whether the toy you want to purchase is an organic one or not.

If you are considering buying any kind of wooden toy just because it says on the label it is natural do not take this as being gospel. Unfortunately although the toy is made using wood it may not be organic as the wood will have been bleached using chemicals in order to retain its natural appearance.

This is a reason why you should read the label or the box in which the toy comes very carefully. Look instead for wooden toys which not only have been made using sustainable wood but which have been made using only natural processes. This will then help to ensure that the toy at no stage during its manufacture will have come into contact with chemicals that can be harmful to your child as well as the environment.

Another thing to be aware of when buying a wooden toy is what paints have been used on it in order to decorate it. Those that are organic should be toys, which have paints made from only natural ingredients, pigments or colors. Often you will find on the label that the paint is being described as lead free and therefore is much safer for them to handle than others.

Although the cotton material on your child's soft toy may be organic it is important that you find out what stuffing has been used inside it. There are some stuffing materials that could be hazardous to your child's health, as they have been made using chemicals, which can be absorbed through the material covering them into your child's skin. Ideally look for those toys that have been made using all natural cotton in them.

The easiest way to find a great selection of good quality organic baby toys is by going online. Not only will you find information and advice that can help you determine which toys are organic and which ones are not. But you will also find sites that are selling these products and often a price much less than you would have to pay in a toy or children's store.
