Organic baby toys are a fabulous baby gift idea. All new parents want the best for their baby and if they are educated about chemicals they are most likely to be trying to avoid things like cheap plastic toys, going instead for a few very good quality toys. There are a few different types of toys to choose from - soft toys made from organic materials such as cotton, or wooden toys made from sustainable timber such as bamboo and rubber trees.
There are many brands of organic baby toys and all have a similar ethos of eco-friendly sustainability.
