Green Kid Crafts is on Dr. Toy’s 7th Best Green Toys Awards and 2013 Best Green Toy Company Award List

San Francisco, CA – For the seventh year Stevanne Auerbach, PhD/Dr. Toy, recognizes the Best Green Toys and Children’s Products and the Best Green Toys Company. Dr. Toy brings attention to the excellent innovative products and companies that are working toward making an important difference in playthings while reducing the impact of production.

The award winning Green Products are made by companies, like Green Kid Crafts, striving to inspire children to appreciate the environment and help them learn to take better care of our natural resources. These companies are making products to teach children more about our planet and producing playthings that are based on green principles. These are excellent examples of playthings that are made safely, are healthy to use, and have plenty of other special play and learning values.

These green toy products constitute a small number among all the choices of the many positive play products available, but we need to start somewhere. As awareness grows more families are thinking and considering new directions that are safer, more balanced, healthier and in many cases are reflective of the “slow” movement as they provide play that respects the child’s pace of exploration.

2013 Best Green Toys Products

Dr. Toy recognizes these fine Best Green Toys and the astute companies making these eco-friendly products, including Green Kid Crafts. They are each making a difference in their own way and making important contributions. Each step moves us toward a healthier home and community.

Dr. Toy has identified diversified products that help children learn more about their world. She has found quality products made from organic materials, or produced in ways that are healthier. Consumers are encouraged to consider these products for home or school or as gifts. Dr. Toy is pleased to recognize these ground breaking companies and products that are helping to create a healthier place for everyone to live.
