With Christmas just one month away, it is time to start deciding what to get those adorable children for Christmas. This will be my first Christmas shopping for three children, as we welcomed baby number three at the end of July. I thought I would be overwhelmed and stressed about shopping for three kids, but I have to say that I am actually the least stressed that I have ever been. I have a whole new attitude this Christmas and after so many years of purchasing toys that just end up in the donation pile, I now know to only get them high quality toys. Why? Because those toys are going to last more than just a few months and longer than the average plastic toy. The Ultimate Green Store offers a huge variety of ecofriendly toys for children of all ages. I discovered so many of my favorite brands on there and I just love that they have an impressive selection of wooden toys. Wooden toys are always on the top of my list when shopping, as I know they will give me more bang for my buck. Those toys are the ones that survive more than one child and can be passed down to younger siblings.
Under The Nile is one of my top favorite brands and we own several of their baby products, which are all of exceptional quality. With my four month old daughter in the midst of teething, I just knew the Organic Cotton Stuffed Toy Monkey would be the perfect gift for her… and boy was I right! Made with the finest 100% organic Egyptian cotton, this genuinely soft toy monkey immediately became her naptime companion. The huggable toy is stuffed with organic cotton so there is no fluff to inhale, which also makes it ideal for teething.The monkey is also pesticide free and very durable, a toy that is going to survive many naps with my daughter. I just love how easy it is for her little hands to hold and that it provides some security for her during naps.
Now back to my love for wood toys because seriously, I can not emphasize this enough… they will last forever! I have been slowly replacing everything in the playroom with wood toys and they are lasting so well being used by three children. I was very excited to add the Plan Toys 50 Organic Building Blocks to the collection and just knew the kids would be thrilled. My instincts were correct and my two oldest children have used the blocks practically every single day. They have created so many different ideas with these blocks, their imaginations are overflowing with ways to use them. I just adore watching my four year old son build the tallest tower he can, then listen to his contagious laughter as they come tumbling down. Watching him create strategies and discovering how to create a structure that won’t fall is very fascinating, such a wonderful toy to help with fine motor skills! Overall everyone was quite pleased with both green products we reviewed and judging from that I can tell you that The Ultimate Green Store does indeed offer some great quality toys.
