Last week, I had the privilege of being invited to the annual Blogger’s Brunch here in NYC, where a number of influential bloggers networked and interacted with various companies and marketers. One of the organizations present at the brunch was Goddard Schools, a school that I know a few of my friends and family have turned to in the past.
Goddard Schools had a lot of great information to share with us bloggers, but one piece of information that was especially helpful for NKT was their 10 Eco-Friendly Toys Under $30. Together with Eco-Child’s Play, Goddard Schools unveiled a really great list of eco-friendly AND budget friendly toys.
All the toys are really great suggestions, but I love that Hugg-a-Planet Earth by Peace Toys made their list! Different variations of this stuffed version of the Earth has been awarded various toy honors and accolades. The Hugg-a-Planet Earth is appropriate for all ages, is labeled with over 600 places and is just like a real globe, but soft.
There are different sizes ranging from small to very large, with the smaller that stay under the $30 range. We have the baby planet earth ($10,) which makes a great alternative to a stuffed animal, but is also perfect on the bookshelf, a desk or a decorative toy on a bed. It’s so versatile, green, educational and unique.
Hugg-a-Planet Earth can be found online and at various boutiques and retail stores.
