Why Choose Organic Baby Toys?
As a new or expectant parent, it's only natural that we want to choose what's best for our children. Which is why many parents often wonder, "are natural and organic toys really different or better for my baby?" In this article, we'll dive into the reasons why organic toys are healthier choices for your baby.
A lot of conventional toys are made overseas in countries that don't have strict regulations on materials used. As a result some toys still use flame retardant fabric and stuffing and PVC vinyl which have both been known to contribute to causing cancer.
Although babies and toddlers don't eat toys, every parent knows that most things they can hold always goes in their mouths! So tiny particles are easily inhaled or ingested and for this reason soft baby toys should be made with natural fibres and non-toxic dyes and avoiding flame retardant fabric or PVC vinyl. As babies’ skin is much thinner than adults, they can easily absorb nasty toxins. Organic cotton is also good for babies that have eczema, allergies and sensitive skin.
We have chosen to stock Purebaby as they use organic cotton that is soft, strong and resilient, while the pure fibres allow young skin to breathe. Their cotton is grown without harmful chemicals, using methods and materials with a low environmental impact. Their products are made with awareness and care and are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), the leading standard for organic textiles.
Purebaby’s products are perfect as a baby shower gift, a gift for a newborn or as a lovely gift to a new mum. The high quality also means that you will have them for years to come or can use them as a hand-me-down!
