Eco Friendly stocking fillers for kids


Eco friendly toy
Felt Giraffe £9.95


We are huge fans of natural wooden, nature inspired toys and crafts that inspire imagination and creativity. I think personally the craftsmanship and quality always seems a lot better than that of plastic toys and longevity is important to us, especially if we have any more children it's something that can be passed on. There is also something wonderful about the texture and feel of a wooden, fabric or paper toy that is more warming than that of a plastic one and it's really good for children to be surround by different textures that increase the sensory experience of their toys. Now this is not a sponsored post I just wanted to share our favourite picks from a store we often use when it comes to birthdays and special occasions - Myriad, a lovely natural toy and craft online shop. I wanted to put together some fun and affordable stocking fillers that are beautiful but also eco friendly

  1. Oooh, that elephant is so lovely - I'd like it in my stocking! It's true what you say about plastic toys; they have no personality and they don't seem to last from one Christmas to the next, never mind long enough to pass on to a new generation!
