Sustainable toys are great for kids and the environment. They are safe to use, made from sustainable materials, and encourage learning. Sustainable toys also last a lifetime and inheritable down to younger family members or given away as gifts. Here are ten reasons why sustainable toys are worth buying:
Top 10 Reasons Why Sustainable Toys Are Great
They are safe for children
All the toys on this list are using safe materials that won’t hurt your kids. These include no toxic chemicals, no lead paint, no phthalates, BPA, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), cadmium and mercury.
These chemical-free products mean you can give them to your little ones without worrying about any potential harm. So, if you want a toy that is safe for your child, check out Wooden Busy City Train Rail Set by Hape.
They aren’t using nasty chemicals
You can find out what kinds of chemicals they’re using in the toys you buy by looking at the packaging. If there are any warnings about potential dangers, try to avoid that toy. Also, if a toy contains many different types of plastics or other materials, you should look for another one. It’s likely that those materials were manufactured with toxic chemicals.
Chemicals such as lead and mercury are dangerous for children because they can cause health problems when ingested or inhaled. These elements can also cause harm to adults who work at factories that produce toys using these substances. The workers may suffer from respiratory problems during their tenure at work sites where these chemicals are present. This could result in illnesses like asthma later on down the road.
There are a lot of toys that are toxic-free out on the market. For example, Emergency Services HQ Play Set by Hape. Not just toxic-free, it’s also good for the environment!
They support the environment
A big part of sustainable toys is that they are using recycled materials and sustainable materials. This means that the toys you buy for your kids won’t make the environment worse, which helps the environment. Sustainable toys can help children understand how important it is to protect our planet. We should all protect the environment.
Depending on the kind of toy you choose, it comes from renewable resources. This means you can replace broken parts by simply buying them and not having to throw away the entire toy.
Sustainable toys come in different shapes and sizes so there will be something out there somewhere just waiting for you! Discover the Marble Run Race Track Games by Hape, which support the cognitive development of the child.
They come from sustainable materials
When it comes to toys, you want to make sure that they are not only fun but also safe. When choosing a toy, look for one that comes from sustainable materials. There are many different types of sustainable materials that they’re using in toy manufacturing. Some examples include recycled plastics, biodegradable plastics, and organic fibres. The eco-friendly toys below all use some form of plant-based material!

They are durable, high-quality, and built to last
Kids are rough on their toys. They may not mean to be, but it’s just the nature of being a kid! Even if you have impeccable behaviour and perfect manners, your little ones will still put their toys through the wringer.
But now that we’re in 2019 and you want to buy sustainable toys, how can you know what makes them durable? Well, there are two things to keep an eye out for durability of materials and construction quality.
Let’s start with the durability of materials. If your toy feels like it could fall apart at any moment or is consists of brittle plastic, then it probably won’t hold up very well after repeated use. Even if it looks cool! On top of that, be wary of stickers and other pieces that could easily peel off over time. These kinds of features are easy targets for kids who love pulling things off their toys!

They encourage hands-on learning
Toys are a great way for children to learn about the world around them. They can help your child develop their imagination, creativity, and curiosity. In addition, toys can teach children about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through exploration and experimentation. Toys such as building blocks allow children to create structures with their own hands. Meanwhile, others such as dolls help them explore human relationships.

They support local jobs
The best thing about sustainable toys is that they support local jobs. The people who make and sell these products are part of your community. Because they’re helping to keep money in the area, you can spend it on other local businesses and services. This is good for your town or city economy because it keeps money circulating locally instead of sending it elsewhere.
When people buy things made by corporations with no connection to where they live, it’s good for society at large. We lose out on all sorts of benefits that come from knowing our neighbours and spending time together. Stronger bonds between different groups within society lead them to treat each other better. People feel more invested in each other’s lives; etc.

They inspire children’s creativity and imagination
Imagine the possibilities! These toys are not only fun to play with, but they also encourage children’s creativity and imagination. Children can use them in their way. Imagine a child who wants to set up a toy store or create a puppet show for others. They are also great for teachers in the classroom because children can be creative and imaginative when using these toys.
These toys do not just individually inspire creativity; they also encourage kids’ imaginations on a larger scale. How many times have you heard someone say that they wish they had been born earlier so that they could have lived during the Victorian era? Because one of the best parts of being alive today is seeing all that our modern world produces before us.

They can be recycled, repurposed, and even upcycled! If you want to pass your child’s toy along to their child, this is the best way for them to do so.
