I’ve said it before, there is one thing I love to do and that is supporting businesses run by families. Not that there aren’t awesome “big” companies out there but when you hear a heart warming story like the one about how Wee-Organics was started, I feel better about where I spend my money because I know it’s going to people who care about our kids ad love what they do. Wee-Organics was started by “Grammie & Grampie”, also known as Ed and Sharen Bogosian. Their daughter Kim became frustrated with trying to find safe toys and teethers for her sons, so Grammie and Grampie started Wee-Organics to fill the void of natural toys made in the USA.
They run their family owned business in Vermont where they try hard to operate as sustainably as possible. Buying wood from mills that harvest in sustainable Vermont forests and have reforestation programs. They also give their saw dust to local farmers for mulch – how cool!
All their toys are made with natural local Vermont wood and when they are painted or finished, they use non-toxic water based paints and finishes. They have a range of items appropriate for babies 6 months and up as well as toys for older kids (I think I love Colton’s Tractor – how cute!) They create cars, trucks and puzzles and even take requests on their Safe Toys USA Blog.
Get Safe Toys: I really love the whole concept behind Wee-Organics! Check out their great selection of teethers, rattles and more on their website Wee-Organics.com.
