Find healthy kids toys!

We all want to do right by our babies and children, and sometimes that means doing a bit of investigative work before speaking with our dollars. When it comes to finding healthy toys, car seats, and other kids stuff, the people at the Ecology Center have already done the work for us. Searching before buying a new play thing for my kiddo tells me whether the product I'm thinking of getting is high (or low) in certain chemicals like lead, chlorine, or arsenic that may be harmful to my child's health. This site used to rank only toys, but has now added, a searchable database of test results for things like teethers, activity mats/gyms, car seats, and more. Cheers to good information and healthy choices!
