Jade’s ToyBox offers unique, eco-friendly toy filled gift sets for babies, toddlers and preschoolers in a variety of themed ‘concept boxes’ that combine learning, fun and safety. The company was started by a mother and father in New York City after they realized that a number of their daughter, Jade’s toys were listed on the China lead recall list. They developed Jade’s ToyBox to take the guesswork out of shopping for kids. Jade’s ToyBoxes are “free of batteries, licensed characters and toxic chemicals.” From the New Yorker which features quintessential toys for tots living in the Big Apple, to the Moody Foodie which encourages a child to expand their picky palate, there’s sure to be a ToyBox for every kid’s penchant. Our favorite is the Green Bambino Box, (shown above) which is the ultimate starter kit for all new and expecting eco-conscious parents. Learn what’s inside the toybox after the jump!
The Green Bambino Box includes: a starter library for parents and baby, including replenishable wood ABC blocks, a phthalate-free rubber duckie, a wind-up wooden music box (handpainted in the U.S.A.), a recycled paper journal, letterpress “baby update” cards, and a handmade, fair-trade Yoyo animal from a Bolivian women’s cooperative.
Note: Jade’s ToyBox will also create custom boxes that represent your child — with dolls, books, and other products that reflect your family’s cultural heritage.
