WHY DO WE RECOMMEND YOU TRY TOYS MADE FROM ECO-FRIENDLY WOOD?
Toys can be a source of exposure to toxic chemicals for our children, both when they are made from plastic as well as when they are manufactured using non-organic varnishes and/or paints. In addition, many toys on the market are made in Asia under bad working conditions. It is very important to choose toys that are free from toxic chemicals and are made under socially acceptable conditions.
