|Little man and Maclaren’s Organic Mac the Puppy|
Maclaren is well known for making popular, top quality strollers at affordable prices. We love their Twin Techno double stroller (for us it’s second to none), and we recently learned they also make organic baby toys. When we bought toys for our little guy, especially stroller or crib toys, we always bought organic toys. He likes to put everything in his mouth, so it made us feel much better to know that whatever he was playing with was made of organic cotton. It’s great news that Maclaren, a company we love, now makes them also.

Maclaren offers organic toys in three styles currently- a dog, an elephant, and a set of three stroller toys. All are well-made and packaged to make a lovely gift presentation (above photo), and the stroller toys also feature a fun vibrating effect when the strap is pulled and released. The stroller toys come in a pack of three- a turtle, a chicken, and a kite.

These colorful toys being organic means they are non-toxic if your child mouths them (no harmful chemicals, no dangerous dyes, no hazardous by-products in the material from the manufacturing process. There are also no buttons that can be chewed off, or long straps that can pose as choking hazards. I would feel safe with him falling asleep with these (though in general I don’t leave anything in his crib). They were made with safety in mind, and the fact that they are nice quality and cuddly for children is a plus. Our son liked the vibrating stroller toys (for a minute- he’s over one now so the novelty wears off quickly) but he really like the larger stuffed animals. He pretends they are pets and kisses them and pets them, then he hands them to me to kiss and pet them. The organic stroller toys would make terrific gifts for new babies up to about one, and the larger animals would be great for babies and tots as well.
Thank you to Maclaren for the samples!
