I’ve been a busy Santa‘s helper compiling my picks for safer gift picks for the kids this year. I put this out each year – it’s a lot of fun and I hope it helps. As a “greenie” I am a supporter of the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” mantra but I am also realistic and know that people are going to buy new gifts. So I hope they are more natural toys with safer materials and finishes. Finding gifts the kids will like (and that aren’t lining the shelves of Walmart) is tricky but many online shops like the good people that sponsor this website to keep it going, are families just like you, who need your support.
Please check out this year’s 2012 Safer Holiday Toy Guide! I have a lot of fun gift ideas for mom and dad too which I’ll post soon. While you’re at it, please take a look at my contributor article in this month’s Green Child Magazine about choosing safer toys. (I think it’s around page 52) If you want to shop smart this season, it’s a good read to start with!
Ho ho ho!
