Great Gift for Toddlers and Kids

If you want to steer them away from ONLY technology, and keep your kids developing on every level, or if you are interested in green toys or ones that raise awareness while it stirs the imagination and develops skills, this might be the post for you.

PRESS HERE: This is such a cool little book - who knew you could INTERACT so much with something that's this low tech... and isn't that the best part about it??? See what I mean in the video:

 Get it on Amazon for only $8.99.


GREEN TOYS is a company that makes things out of 100% recycled materials, made in America, and they are very affordable. They offer ALL kinds of PBA-free things for kids - and baby too - from building blocks, to tug boats, to teethers in pretty pastel colors. The hottest thing in their line this year is this tractor for only $19.99. Rust proof, with tires that go anywhere and detachable back bin. CLICK HERE to buy.


Though I think their Fire truck rocks (BUY HERE for $27.99).
They have chef sets and dining table set ups for your little one's tea party, play gardening tools and even tool boxes - blue for boys and pink for girls.  The below sells HERE for $27.99.


EEBoo.com is well worth clicking around to find all kinds of education-by-fun games and crafts for kids, I like their Spanish Flash Cards or Spanish Bingo or find those in French.  How about Flash Cards that make it fun for the kids on your list to learn responsibility? CLICK HERE to get the box for Good Citizenship, Good Manners, or Respecting the Earth, and click the pie in the corner to buy. For age 5+ at $11.95  Here are their Respect the Earth flash cards.


Friendly animals show simple ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in the 48 cards that demonstrate answers to questions about relationship to the larger world that children can relate to. For example: *Before you recycle containers… Rinse your recyclables! *If you have a computer… Ask your parents to set the computer to “power-saver” mode.

Another company that you should click around on yourself is BEGIN AGAIN. There are just TOO many things to choose from on this site. They offer toys under a special "A WISH" Collection - based on the idea that a child plays based on 5 distinct styles - for the artist, writer, inventor, sportster, hero. They also have toys for the Beginner. Well worth a gander.  


Here are buddy blocks: "A great first block set that grows with your child! Each 4-piece block forms 6 diff erent puzzles featuring colorful animals. Toddlers will enjoy stacking and puzzle plays as they develop. Buddy Blocks are the per-fect introduct on to puzzles. Sized for lit le hands, the 1 1/4" blocks are earth friendly and a delight to hold. Comes with storage tray for easy clean up. Mult -Stage toy: Grows with your child's needs."  At $13.00 you can't beat it! CLICK HERE to see/buy.
