Mushroom & Co stock only natural toys and we know lots of our customers buy them as gifts. Whether for a baby shower or birthdays, Easter, Christmas or just because - we have put together this quick gift guide of green ideas for you to enjoy:
Green Baby Shower Gifts
Our teething toys and bath time toys are very popular as Eco Friendly Baby Shower Gifts. Clothes for baby are a common gift at a Baby Shower and while welcome, choosing the right size for baby and style for mum can be difficult. Baby’s grow very fast so a gift of clothing will not always last very long, this is why gifting toys that help in baby’s development and play are a great idea.
Eco Teething Toys like Strawberry the Teether are made to be the perfect size, shape and weight for the baby to hold. Created to soothe baby’s gums they are textured and brightly coloured to engage your baby while teething. As they are made from 100% organic natural rubber they are also safe for baby to chew.
We also stock more animated teethers like Jo the Duck and Bo the Frog and at a great price of only £6.00 each you can combine them to make a great eco-friendly, organic teething gift for the baby shower.
One of the most exciting and rewarding times for a new mum is when they bath their baby, getting them into a routine and playing games in the tub! Gifting cute characters for mum and baby to explore together at bathtime is a great baby shower gift.
We stock classic toys like Nelson the Duck and a great range of character bathtime toys like Ollie the Octopus and Kobi the Crab.
Our Ocean bath set is very popular as a gift or pick a few of your favourites, combine them with a baby bath soap or lotion or a cute baby bath towel and you have a new baby bath time hamper to deliver to the new mum.
Eco Toys for First Birthday Gifts
A first birthday party is a real family occasion and a great time to celebrate the new member of the family and all they have achieved in their first year. Being one, means that much of what the child picks up still goes straight into their mouths which is why it is so important that their toys are made from natural rubber with no toxins or chemicals. This ensures they can chew and bite their toys the way they want to!
Teethers are still good gifts for a first birthday, as are sensory toys that help develop all their five senses while playing and exploring. Hunter the Hedgehog is a great toy with brightly coloured soft ‘spikes’ so he can be squeezed, chewed and pulled in as many ways you can imagine! Perfect for curious hands. Heady the Caterpillar is a cheerful, cute character toy that has lots of soft tactile hairs on his back, great for touch visual development and those huge eyes make him a great friend.
Getting gifts that will help develop a child’s play skills and imagination are a great idea for a first birthday and our Jungle Chums are just perfect for this! Edward, Tammy and Zippy are adorable characters with big features and colourful easily distinguished bodies perfect for creating stories and first adventures with. They also come as a set of three, ready to be gifted!
