Success Through Play™ Comments:
These bright and colorful eco-friendly toys, safe for children aged 3 year and older, delighted our test panel of 3-5 years olds! They are heirloom quality and very well constructed. The eco-toys feature a wonderful textured fabric which provides wonderful tactile stimulation. The caterpillar has a friendly large face which will warm the hearts of children. The colorful rings of the caterpillar are secured by a velcro stopper. Child can practise "threading" the rings on and off of the caterpillar, taking it one ring at a time, which will help to develop their eye hand coordination skills. While they are at it, they can count and name the colored rings! The body of the caterpillar is flexible and children with love moving the caterpillar in various directions, imitating the up and down motion of a caterpillar.

The stackable stuffed animals are safe for children aged 3 and older. They are beautifully designed and feature a textured fabric which will provide tactile input. The bright colors and interesting patterns are sure to turn these animals into your child's favorite friend, to tote all around town!

These toys look so bright and colorful. How wonderful that they are eco-friendly at the same time. Usually eco-friendly toys are natural colored, but these look fantastic. They also appear to offer opportunities for stimulating our children's development. Thank you for highlighting them...I would have never known about them if I hadn't seen them here.
