Welcome to my Green Christmas Guide where you will find my favourite eco friendly toys and gifts for babies & children, from big name brands and small buisness. All the products featured are kinder to our planet and substantially made. Best of all everything is under £50! I've also included my favourite stocking filler (no tat I promise!).
The term eco friendly is sometimes associated with boaring but I promise the products featured are far from that. They will spark imagination, inspire curiosity and keep little hands busy.
If everyone switched to buying just one eco friendly gift this Christmas it could make a big difference to our planet.
