Non Toxic Gifts For A Toddler
Non Toxic Kitchen Toys
Toddlers love kitchen toys. My toddler plays with her kitchen and food toys every day. They are the best! Toddlers not only have fun with kitchen pretend plays but also learn languages while playing them. My toddler learned so many words while cutting toy vegetables and fruits and cooking meals for her teddy bear. Let’s take a look at some kitchen and food toys.
Camden Rose Kitchen Toys
Camden Rose makes natural toys and home goods for environmentally conscious families. They are pricey but if you want high quality natural wooden toys with no toxic chemicals, they are the best. Wooden toys can be toxic if they are made with manufactured wood such as plywood or particle boards since manufactured woods are often treated with chemicals, have formaldehyde glue, have toxic dye or paints and also toxic lacquer finish. Camden Rose toys are made with all natural ingredients as below.

Non Toxic Plastic Toys
I want to avoid plastic toys as much as possible. However, there are times plastic toys are needed. If you must have plastic toys, choose plastic toys made with safer plastic. Plastic number #2, 4, 5 are the safest plastic. #3 and 6 should be avoided. You will be surprised find so many toys are made from #3 plastic PVC which is the most dangerous plastic material.
Green Toys use 100% recycled plastic materials (from milk jugs) for their toys. Their plastic material is one of the safest plastic.
