We all know kids are hard on their toys, they get thrown, they get chewed and they get stepped on on a regular basis. Finding toys that are durable enough to withstand childhood is a tough prospect, but today we are getting the option of toys that are not only durable, but eco-friendly as well.

Why choose eco-friendly toys? Well, who wants their child chewing on potentially toxic plastics? Kids will chew, drool on and manipulate their toys so knowing that no PVC’s or BPA is added to the plastic means that your child isn’t running the risk of getting poisoned through their toys. These things are regularly found in regular plastic and vinyl toys.
