Eco-Friendly Toys for Toddlers

4. Ride-On Toys From Wishbone Design Studio

Wishbone bikes are the industry standard in wooden riding toys. Their 3-in-1 convertible balance bike grows with your child, transforming from a push trike to a small scooter, to a large balance bike.

Wishbone gets my vote because their company manifesto includes a declaration to “Sustainibilize Everything.” This has led to a bike made from 100 percent reforested birch plywood with a silicon seat and organic cotton bag, a “no plastic packaging” policy, a carbon emissions offset program which certifies them carboNZero (the company is based in New Zealand), and more.

I like the idea of all of these except the first one. The construction of the toy itself may have been eco-friendly, but by giving a child a toy car you are turning a car into a "happy thing" for them, and thereby perpetuating the western obsession with personal cars.
