Good morning lovely people, how are you all today? I just wanted to share a few toys that I’ve come across recently that encourage children to start thinking about aspects of eco-friendly living from an early age i.e. renewable energy, recycling, waste reduction and so on.

The playthings I’ve listed below are all made from ethical and environmentally sound materials and can be added to your Amazon basket as required (easy peasy!)

I especially love the Plan Toys dolls’ house, it’s very ‘Grand Designs’ isn’t it?

    Loving the cloth nappies for dolls! What a fab idea. My daughters put their old cloth nappies on teddies, so I’m pleased to see these on the market.
    We like to play lots outside, and as a green and eco blogger I quite often write about getting the kids gardening. I recommend buying a basic gardening set for toddlers. It teaches them the basics of gardening, without waving your big pointy trowel around!
