As part of our Conscious Christmas With Abe’s Market series, I’ve had the chance to look through a huge selection of eco-friendly, educational, and most of all – FUN toys.
This post includes green gift ideas for girls, but many of these would fit just as easily into our gift guide for boys. Oh, and I only listed the bookcase that looks like a dollhouse first because I would loved finding it under the tree when I was a little girl
Sustainable Bookcase / Dollhouse
At only $59, Kroom’s Dollhouse Bookcase is a gift that makes a big impact for that special child, but leaves little impact on the planet and your wallet. She can store books, dolls, or both in this sturdy recycled cardboard (I know families who have had this for two years, and it’s still in great shape). It’s also recyclable when your child outgrows it.
Botanical Watercolor Pigment Paint Set by GLOB
Art supplies encourage creativity and imagination. And with these natural, botanical pigments, you don’t have to worry about breathing, eating, or getting toxins on the skin. Each bottle makes up to 4 oz. of paint in four vibrant colors:. Lemon Verbena, Blueberry, Pomegranate, Basil
The back of a school worksheet just won’t do for some of her more special Works of Art. This 5 x 7 painting pad/sketchbook is made from 100% post-consumer waste, recycled paper *Acid free, processed chlorine free paper and board.
Table & Chairs Set by Kroom
Now that she has plenty of eco-friendly art supplies, she needs a place to create. Set up a space in the kitchen (so she can stay busy while Mom & Dad make dinner) or playroom to keep all the art supplies contained. The sturdy construction can hold up to 176 lbs. per chair and 264 lbs. on the table.
Global Green Pals – Pani Rani Eco-friendly Doll
My grandmother had several dolls from the Madame Alexander International Collection. I remember the first time she’d get a new one – my eyes couldn’t work fast enough taking in the details of the fabrics, hair styles, skin color, eye shape. I loved seeing how beautiful someone “different” was.
Pani Rani™ or “Water Princess,” is from India and grew up in a dry place so she knows water is precious for all children around the world. She cares about conserving water and knows we can all do our part. Rani comes fully accessorized wearing a colorful South Asian dress with coordinated hair ribbons and sandals and carries a small fabric bucket that can be attached to her hand
Farm Play Set
Farm play sets can be a fun way of talking to your kids about where food comes from. The problem with these toys is that they’re usually plastic. Another recycled cardboard set by Kroom to the rescue (you can find even more Kroom sets at Abe’s Market.)
Now she can design her own wearable art! This eco art kit really makes beautiful jewelry, and it includes a bonus project–the box turns into a frame for her finished artwork. Assembled at Goodwill Industries of South-Central Wisconsin. Ages 7 and up.
Toe-Tally Natural Nail Polish Gift Set by Piggy Paint
For a fun and safe stocking stuffer, we love Piggy Paint. I use Piggy Paint in the summer months and think the non-toxic, hypoallergenic formula lasts longer than conventional nail polish. What we love most is that it’s safe for your little girl’s piggies!
