Natural baby products keep baby safe, parents happy

When it comes to food and toys, parents want to offer their kids the best, healthiest and safest options.

Dandelion Earth-Friendly Goods just launched a line of chemical-free organic developmental toys, rattles and teethers and ReUsables — plates, bowls and utensils made from corn.

Of the toys, the Stacker has four unique rings that vary by color and texture and stack on a base — just like that classic plastic version, but made from soft organic fabric and stuffed with a washable filling made from corn. The toys range in price from $12.99 to $34.99 for the Stacker.

The rattles and teethers are also made from similar materials – organic fabrics and stuffed with soft corn fibers. The organic Teething Blanket, made of a soft organic cotton velour, features a bear head, making the small blanket take-along friendly.

The ReUsables line ($6.99; plates and bowls come in packs of two, utensils comes with four forks and four spoons), made from corn and natural ingredients, are also free of BPA and phthalates. The downside? You can’t microwave these items and you have to hand wash them, too.
