Eco-friendly parents often have a hard time finding bath toys that are fun, safe and affordable. This tugboat from Green Toys is all of those things, and because it is made of 100% recycled plastic (post-consumer milk jugs), as well as being BPA, phthalates and PVC free, it is a plastic bath toy that doesn’t have to conflict with eco principles.
Not only that it is fun for babies and toddlers. It floats, it pours, it scoops, it has a great handle for grasping and it is a good size (9 inches long). Some moms have found it helps with the dreaded task of hair-washing, turning that into a fun game instead of a torturous screaming session.
Buy it for an eco-friendly new baby gift, or buy it for your own baby. It’s other environmental credentials are that it is made in California to strict toy safety regulations, locally-made means fewer air miles, and its packaging is all recycled and printed in soy inks.
