Natural and Non Toxic Christmas Gifts for Kids and Teens
Cheap toys and gifts, especially those made from plastic are often very toxic. Made from cheap, nasty ingredients and mass produced in often unethical conditions, they also contribute to landfill.
I know that shopping for quality, non-toxic toys and gifts for kids takes more of an effort than just popping down to your local KMart.
I know that eco-friendly, non-toxic good quality toys made by small, ethical businesses cost more.
But I also know that our kids are worth it and so is our planet.
With that in mind, here are some of my top picks for natural and non toxic christmas gifts for kids and teens.
Both my kids adored hanging around under baby gyms! It meant I could get stuff done while they were entertained for a bit. I love this eco-friendly, non toxic version. Made from sustainable birch wood, certified organic cotton and sheep’s wool, it’s height adjustable and completely safe. You can also unclip the toys and use them elsewhere. Gorgeous!

So popular amongst our natural, new age mums, the Wishbone Bike is an award winning, NZ design, 3-bikes-in-1! It grows with your child from a push along to a balance bike aimed to take them straight to a pedal bicycle with no need for training wheels.
Made from kiln-dried, preservative-free plantation birch/ash finished with eco friendly glues, certified organic cotton spare parts bag, recycled packaging printed with non-toxic inks.

Made from sustainably sourced pine with a fabric canopy. When the kids get older, use it as a veggie garden!

New lunch boxes are a totally legit Christmas gift!! The Yumbox is another firm favourite amongst our natural new age mums. It’s affordable, leak proof and free of any nasty BPAs and phalates. It is also dishwasher safe and easy to clean and pack – no little containers needed.
