ecoTimeToys: Organic, All Natural Toys! Review and Giveaways {Ends 10/30}


"Where are all the old fashioned wooden imagination toys that we used to play with?" I just recently asked my husband as we walked through the toy department of a local store. Everything is brightly colored plastic that not only breaks quickly but is also not baby or kid friendly. There is little left to spark a child's imagination as everything is electronic and works on its own.

And if that is not bad enough, we now wonder if there is lead in that child's toy that our unsuspecting innocent child is going to stick in his mouth. Honestly, what happened to a good old fashioned wooden toy or rattle?

Thankfully, I was introduced to a great company called ecoTimeToys. This is a great toy store and worthy of every parent's perusal. What I love about ecoTimeToys is they are ecofriendly. They are safe for any child to play with it.

We had the opportunity to review the Rattling Caterpillar by Haba and boy was I pleased with toy. Gabriel is just a little too little to play with it yet but very soon he will be loving this cute little caterpillar. The caterpillar has the cutest face and I love the quality of this toy. This caterpillar is not one that will break quickly. It will definitely withstand much love and play time as I am sure he will get as Gabriel gets older.

As I looked through ecoTimeToys store, I was struck with just how everything is made for the imagination. I can still remember the hours my siblings and I spent building things and wanted exactly that for my children. My brother is now an engineer and who knows maybe he's career began when he played with building blocks similar to the ones that ecoTimeToys has to offer.

Another thing that I absolutely LOVED about ecoTimeToys is that their toys are affordable!! You can easily find toys that are under $20. Not only are they affordable, they will last you a long time. And if the prices are not already good, every day ecoTimeToys has a Daily Deal. This is a great place to shop for birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, and even baby shower gifts.


WIN IT!!!

EcoTimeToys has generously offered to give a $50 gift certificate so that one of my readers can go shopping for their own great ecofriendly toys!!
