I am a already a big fan of organic cotton and eco-friendly toys for kids and now thanks to The Ultimate Green Store and their Under the Nile fruit set I have discover eco-friendly educational toys that help kids create positive associations with healthy foods.
The Under the Nile's organic cotton stuffed fruit tote includes a banana, grapes, a watermelon and a pear. The super cute tote makes clean up and storage easy. This set is also made AND stuffed with 100% Organic Egyptian Cotton and it is safe for infants to play with and chew on. I love that it is pesticide and organic dyes free.
The fruit set was a success with my little one and he played with it right away. He loved it! I was happy to play with him and teach him the names of the fruits. Every time he plays with each fruit I repeat its name and I will continue doing it to help him learn the words. For older children the set is great to be used as an introduction to "healthy" foods in a friendly manner. By letting them play with the toys and see the happy faces you can introduce new fruits and vegetables during the fun times and reinforce the notion that eating fruits and vegetables doesn't have to be a chore.
We have used our tote and fruits for a couple of weeks and I can say the toys are very durable, even after being chewed on by my son almost daily. I have shown the set to a couple of mommy friends and their little ones and all of the other babies are immediately attracted to the fruits and start playing right away. A success when having play dates!
