5 Pretty Awesome Green Kids Toys

One of my favorite green stores is Wild Dill. They are a one stop shop for your green kids needs! Besides loving their children’s clothing (which will be addressed in a later article this month) their toys are outta site! I had to share some super cool toys I found while doing some holiday shopping for some friends and family. I hope you enjoy Wild Dill’s toys too!

Cut Veggies

Cut Veggies

 

 

This is probably one of the few times it is alright for your children to play with food! You can teach them how to be safe as well as the importance of eating their veggies all in one toy. This toy also helps increase their motor skills and coordination. This toy has used all child safe paints and was Fairly made in Asia.

Color Your Own Cottage

Color Your Own Cottage

 

 

I would have loved this when I was a little girl! You can paint and decorate your own playhouse any way you want! The set comes with non-toxic water colors. The cardboard is made from 45% post consumer waste. Your child can use anything they want to make this playhouse their own. Get creative and most importantly have fun.

 

RaceCars

RaceCars

 

 

You child too can have super race cars made out of recycled milk jugs! These cars are super detailed and can rival the likes of any other race car out there. The cars are made right here in the USA which makes them double awesome.

 

 

Dragon

Dragon

 

 

When I was a kid I hated being told I had to stay in the lines! I never wanted to draw anything “perfectly” where was the fun in that? Where was the imagination? This dragon among other styles can teach your child to color out of the lines and follow their own path. I love this little guy! Best of all when you are finished with the toy it is full compostable!

 

Butterfly Puzzle

Butterfly Puzzle

 

 

I’m a sucker for anything colorful and pretty but this simple educational game is really multi functional and is made to last long. The Butterfly Puzzle can be passed down and shared for years to come. The Butterfly Puzzle has been Fairly Made using child safe paints.
