postheadericon Tips For Choosing Stuffed Animal Toys For Little Ones

Little ones love curling up with soft and cuddle stuffed animals and many will
keep their treasured buddies for a lifetime. Of course, not all toys are made to last, so here are some tips for choosing the safest, most durable toys that children can enjoy for years to come:

  • 100% organic fleece is soft, cuddly and safe for the tiniest little hands to cuddle and love. Best of all, it's machine washable.
  • Look for seams that are completely sewn 
  • Outer features - eyes, nose and mouth - should be secured with safety hardware.
  • Any clothing or accessories should be made from equally safe, child-friendly materials.
  • Pay special attention to make sure there are no removable pieces that could be a choking hazard.
  • Avoid toys treated with chemical flame-retardants. Natural fibers are best. 

Vintage baby toys can tug at our heartstrings, but use caution when purchasing vintage toys that will be used for more than display. Safety regulations in the past were not as stringent as they are today, so take care to educate yourself when choosing stuffed animal toys for little ones. Organic stuffed animals are often hand-crafted and special attention is given to safety, so many parents opt for these products for their children.
