Why Natural Toys?

Why Natural Toys?

As part two of our two part three part series, we explore the importance of "Natural" in our tagline, Simple - Natural - Adorable.

Our product line features children's products made with organic cotton, wood, beeswax, as well as plant based bioplastic. We also carry a wonderful line of water-based nail polish. We strive to minimize any synthetic or plastic toys in the range of toys we offer.

Why are we obsessed with natural toys?

In recent years, there has been growing concern about the health and environmental impacts of conventional toys and play materials. Many toys are made from synthetic materials, such as plastic, that can release toxic chemicals into the environment and pose a threat to human health. To address these concerns, we strive to give families the option of natural, non-toxic toys as a safer and more environmentally responsible alternative.

One of the key benefits of natural, non-toxic toys is their safety. Unlike conventional toys, which can contain harmful chemicals, natural toys are made from materials that are non-toxic and free from harmful substances. This makes them a safer choice for children and the environment. Additionally, many natural toys are made from materials that are sustainable and biodegradable, reducing the impact on the planet.

Another benefit of natural toys is their versatility for open-ended play. Natural toys, such as wooden blocks, balls, and dolls, can be used in a variety of ways and can be played with for years. Unlike electronic toys, which can quickly become outdated, natural toys can provide endless hours of imaginative play and can be passed down from generation to generation. 

They are also typically long lasting because wooden toys can often be glued back to together, and soft cotton dolls can be repaired. (On that note, if you buy a stuffed doll or animal from us, we offer a free repair service for any soft toy that starts to come apart).

In addition to being safer and more versatile, natural toys can also support child development. Natural toys, such as blocks and balls, can help to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. They can also provide opportunities for imaginative play and encourage children to think critically and problem-solve.

Furthermore, natural toys can foster a strong connection to nature. Children who play with natural toys, such as wooden blocks and dolls, may be more likely to appreciate the natural world and develop a love for the environment. This connection to nature can help to lay the foundation for a lifelong commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.

In order to ensure the utmost safety and quality of our products, we source from the very best companies - mostly in Europe, and ensure they meet all applicable safety standards.  

While we hope you take comfort in the natural aspect of our toys, we also hope you are struck by their beauty. Stay tuned for part three in our series - Adorable!
