Earth-Friendly Thanksgiving Gifts For Kids
Did you know that all of our recycled toys are made in the USA? We are proud of our American heritage and Thanksgiving is one of our favourite annual holidays.
This year, Thanksgiving is on Thursday 24th November. It’s a big date in the diary of families all over the US, with many celebrating it on an even bigger scale than Christmas. But the tradition is snowballing all over the world, as it gives friends and family a fantastic excuse to get together, share gratitude and feast on wholesome home-cooked food.
Gift giving isn’t an integral part of Thanksgiving, but it’s a wonderful way to show our loved ones how much we appreciate them. Plus, when it comes to the littlens, having an exciting new toy to play with will come in handy while the grown-ups are busy prepping in the kitchen!
Eco Friendly Toys Made Lovingly In The USA
If you’re an eco-conscious parent looking for inspiration on kids toys that are kind to the planet, we have handpicked five of our favourites by age. Take a look.
Baby Toy Starter Set (0-6 Months)
A charming gift for the baby of the family! While you’re digging into your Turkey Day roast, teething tots can soothe sore gums on these colourful keys, made for tiny hands to hold and chew. This starter set also comes with six stacking cups and baby’s first push toy, the adorable Elephant-on-Wheels.
Fire Truck (6-12 Months)
If disaster strikes in the kitchen, your miniature hero can come to the rescue with their very own Fire Truck. This bright red truck has no metal axles, so it’s kind to the earth and safe for baby. It includes a pivoting roof ladder and two removable side ladders for endless role play fun.
Yellow Seaplane (1-2 Years)
After a tasty (and probably messy) Thanksgiving meal, stop your wiggly one from taking off in the tub with this sustainable seaplane. The bath toy features two chunky pontoons and a spinning propeller, helping to take the stress out of bathtime and keep your kiddo entertained while you scrub those sticky hands! Also available in green.
Dish Set (3-4 Years)
Time for dessert! Mini hosts and hostesses can serve up wedges of pumpkin pie on their environmentally friendly Children's Dinner Set, made out of 100% recycled milk jugs. It comes with a set of four plates, bowls, cups, knives, forks and spoons. Imaginative play is brilliant for developing toddlers’ creativity, vocabulary and social skills.
Play Mats and Tools Dough Set (4-5 Years)
Artsy tots can get crafting this Thanksgiving with their dough making starter kit. The pack comes with spaghetti and star extruders, a scraper, knife, roller, cutter, scissors, three tubs of dough and a two-sided activity play mat. Squeeze and shape the dough into an autumnal scene of pumpkins, golden leaves and turkeys!
