Watch their imaginations take shape with an eco-friendly version of a childhood favorite. Handmade in California, Eco-Dough is made from plant, fruit and veggie extracts without chemicals, artificial dyes or metals. Even the containers are made from cornstarch and are 100% compostable. Eco-Dough doesn’t dry out quickly and if it is left out overnight, just add a few drops of olive oil and it will be as good as new.
Ingredients include natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, beets, blueberries, carrots, paprika, purple sweet potato, red cabbage and spinach, flour, salt, cream of tartar, organic rosemary oil, vitamin E oil, soybean oil, coconut oil, potassium sorbate and citric acid.
Toys inspire children's imagination and help them to develop physically and intellectually. Babies can spend hours playing with (and chewing and sucking on!) their toys. Make sure you choose toys that are safe by investing in wood toys colored with natural dyes or organic plush toys instead of the usual plastic that clutters your home. If you must buy plastic, look for it to be BPA free, PVC free, and phthalate free. For more on the benefits of choosing an organic or wooden toy, see our Healthy Baby Guides.
