Inhabitots on JustMommies: Best New Eco-Friendly Toys for Tots

By Inhabitots

Inhabitots recently attended the 2012 American International Toy Fair, and we were so delighted by all of the great, innovative new toys we can't wait to try out with our little ones. At the Fair, we learned that eco-conscious toy maker Plan Toys is now making toys out of factory sawdust. You'd never know their classic new train set was fashioned from such unsuspecting material. We also want to share some other great new toys that have recently come across our radar. If your tot is more of a chef than a conductor, she'll love Green Toys' new salad set, which comes complete with plenty of vegetables to whip up a healthy, delicious dish. P'kolino has the perfect new offering for aspiring artists on the move. Their traveling art sets make it easy to tote art supplies to and fro, so they're handy whenever inspiration strikes. Budding musicians may opt for P'kolino's rubberwood xylophone, which not only produces lovely melodies, it also teaches kids shapes and colors and doubles as stacking blocks that nest into each other for easy storage. Animal loving tykes will go ape for Areaware Dovetail Animals by Karl Zahn. Each wooden creature (alligator, alpaca, dog, elephant or horse) comes in three parts that fit together via dovetail joints. And we're definitely on board with Manny & Simon's latest addition: a vibrantly colored train push toy that's made from 100% post-industrial recycled wood residuals. So many new toys to suit every girl and boy!
