Need some Christmas inspiration?
Here are some of my favourite non-toxic toys for toddlers.
These are great. They are on our Christmas list too. There are so many activities to do in them and they all stack down into the bottom box – perfect for a flight or to pop in your bag to take somewhere for entertainment! There’s belt buckling, lacing, buttoning, bead lacing and sliding, zippering, disc spinning, soft buttoning and more. Made from sustainable rubberwood and have a non-toxic finish.
I adore these see through coloured blocks. Isabella loves looking through different colours and when you shake these blocks, they all make different sounds as they contain different sized beads. They have colours to match and they are blocks which can be stacked or shaken. Made from sustainable wood and non-toxic paint and glue.
These are what Isabella uses when she’s drawing. They are made from beeswax and non-toxic pigment…and smell amazing! The colours come out really nicely. Highly recommended.
This is also on our Christmas list. It contains the powder to make up 6 different paint colours using non-toxic natural pigments. It’s so non-toxic it is suited to all ages. As you mix up the paints yourself. you can make it as thick or thin as you want depending on if you want a water colour look or a paste. I can’t wait to get Isabella painting with these!
This was one of Isabella’s first birthday presents and it’s a big hit. She enjoys moving the beads on top and the shape sorter…and generally just putting things into the box and taking them out again! There are lots of activities in it and some that are a bit beyond her which is great as it’ll be a toy that lasts a while! Nothing better than having a toy they can grow into I think! Sustainable wood and safe water based paints.
Isabella loves books and pointing at pictures to find out words, it’s definitely her favourite activity. Hence, I just LOVE this little wooden book. It’s small enough to fit in your handbag and there’s enough in it with the 13 double sided pages to keep a child entertained for quite a while! It’s a toy which will stay relevant for a while as there are pictures as well as words and alphabet letters. A real winner. We have this on order! Non-toxic paints and materials.
Isabella loves everything to do with farms and farm animals – she loves making the noises and visiting the kindy farm at the markets. This toy is right up her alley. I love how it encourages imaginative play and it’s a toy that’ll have interest for now as well as a while to come.
We’re often at the beach and Isabella loves playing in the sand…this play set is made from safe plastic. It’s wrapped up and ready to go under the tree!
I think this is just adorable. If I had my time again, I would definitely get this. I thought walkers were just for when children were learning to walk and so wasn’t keen to invest. Now I know they like pushing them round and putting things in them for a much longer time! Love this. Non-toxic paint and sustainable rubberwood.
Another toy involving animals…always a winner! Really cute and encourages imaginative play. Will be great for now and years to come. Non-toxic paints and sustainable rubberwood.
This is just a touch too old for Isabella now, though I know there’s so much about it she’d love already judging by how much she likes opening and closing our kitchen cupboard doors! I think this is just adorable! Definitely something for next year’s Christmas list! Made from birch wood and non-toxic paints.
Isabella loves musical toys and banging things. This has it all – a drum, washboard, xylophone and clacker. It’s a great compact, non-toxic, percussion centre.
We love Green Toys in our house. We have shape sorters and trucks, stackers and boats! We love this boat for the bath. It’s fun to pour water from for Isabella…and I also use it to wash her hair! Made from safe plastic.
Isabella loves the bath and water play. These pipes have different shapes and functions – one has a little spinning water wheel, one has a twirl where water goes around. They are made from safe plastic and are on Isabella’s Christmas list.
Isabella received this for her first birthday from a close friend. It is a big hit in our house. She loves pushing the truck around and putting things in and out of it. It’s perfect in the sand pit too! Made from safe plastic.
We’re just getting to the stage where we might be able to play with play dough soon and not eat the whole lot! I love these stampers! They have beautiful patterns and can be used in baking and play dough and art too.
I’ve linked to the website Eco Toys because it’s where I buy a lot of Isabella’s toys. They get my business because I know if I buy something from there it’ll be safe. Even this mama gets tired researching everything she wants to buy sometimes!

It’s pretty easy to see why I choose them to shop at now isn’t it?
