You don’t need to be the Grinch to be green at Christmas time!

Babies may not be able to make eco-friendly choices for themselves, but that doesn’t mean their favorite grown-ups can’t buy them something that is good for playtime and for the planet.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite Earth-inspired gifts: The items below are sustainable, recyclable, or a mix of both! Kids can stay happy playing, while parents can know they’re getting an early start at teaching kids about caring for the environment.

As a kid, Nicole either wanted to be a professional toy player-wither or a writer. Somehow, as social media editor for The Toy Insider, The Toy Book, and The Pop Insider, she’s found a career as both. She's grateful to work somewhere that she can fully embrace both her love of teddy bears and her admiration for the Oxford comma. When she's not playing with toys at work, she's playing with her baby girl at home.
