Are you looking for a place to shop online for quality and eco-friendly toys this holiday season? I have recently been introduced to a site where you can find something for all of the young children on your list and feel good about your purchase. Down To Earth Toys has a large selection of wooden toys and natural and organic toys for babies and toddlers. Take a peek in the natural and organic section and you will find pretty much anything from a cute little organic puppy doll to beautiful natural wood play kitchens.
At Down To Earth Toys you will also find that many of the toys they carry are toys made in the U.S.A. In fact, about 90% of the toys you will find there are U.S.A. Made. With the growing concern over not just toys but all products made oversees, so many of us would prefer to buy things that are made right here. Not to mention if that if the product is made in the U.S.A. it has a shorter distance to travel from production to your doorstep and that equals a smaller carbon footprint!
Down To Earth Toys offers top quality Toys Made in the USA.We feel that protecting your child, while also supporting America’s economy, are of utmost importance.We know that American made toys are constructed with safe materials and built by fair labor practices.Whether you are looking for baby toys, toddler toys, or outdoor toys… know that you have found a store that is dedicated to offering you toys that you will feel great about giving to your child!
I was fortunate enough to receive a Hickory Dickory Dock Clock by Holgate Toys to test out. This toy is made in the U.S.A. and recommended for ages 2 - 6.
Let me first say why I picked this. As many of my readers already know, I have 3 young boys. My oldest is 4.5 and my twins are 2.5. The twins are both in speech therapy for a speech delay, something we've been working on for a year now. When I saw this clock I thought it would be great for them for learning shape and color words. We also work on basic skills like matching and this toy is working well for us with that. Not only do I have them match the shapes to the corresponding space on the clock, but then we also work on grouping by color. I haven't focused on the actual numbers yet, but we will work our way up to that. I also like that my older son can play with this too. He likes to look up at the clock on our mantle and make up what time it is so now I have a toy where I can actually try to help him with reading time. The hands in the middle of the clock turn easily so you can set it to whatever you want and then let the learning begin.
