1. Soy Crayons – $1.00

If you have a crayon-eater in your family, like I do, you’re going to love these bright and planet-friendly (AP certified non-toxic and contains no lead) crayons. Made from 100% renewable resources without paraffin wax, the crayons offer hours of scribbling fun. The box contains the following eight colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black.2. Hand Turned Wooden Top – $4.00

An old classic with a new twist, this 2″ wide and 1.25″ tall top is hand turned hard maple. The colorful swirling stripes on both the top and bottom of the disk are made with non-toxic and permanent inks.

3. Eco Panda Pick Up Sticks – $3.00
Made from bamboo, the ultimate sustainable material, this eco-friendly wooden sticks game is not only fun to play, but 100% biodegradable too.

4. The Mushroom Kaleidoscope – $4.50

Trippy! These mushroom kaleidoscopes let children see the beauty of the world through three different lenses. Plan Toys are dedicated to using non chemically treated recycled rubberwood.

5. Plantable Nut Tree -$1.10

Little green thumbs are going to love this little present. Just soak and plant the 4″ x 5″ tall Plantable Nut tree and watch pretty Wildflowers bloom. Enjoy the living gift with your child as s/he learns science too.
