Safe toys are very important to every parent. We want our children to have fun, but also not be exposed to lead or toxic chemicals. Up until recently you didn't have much of a choice on toys. You got what you got and hoped that they were safe. Now, however, there are companies that consider providing nontoxic, fun, and educational toys their mission. It can be hard finding them though! It can take hours of searching online. With four children of my own I know just how challenging finding these toys can be!
Play It Safe Toys is devoted to finding the best in children's toys that are not only fun but safe and non-toxic. The lovely lady Justine who founded the company describes why she started her business.
As a Mom, I always worry about the kinds of things my kids put in their mouth. In recent years, I have become even more skeptical about toy quality and safety. I know when I go shopping online for my kids it can be very difficult to find quality toy brands all in one place. I created this site so that parents and family members can find vetted quality toy brands in one spot. You can rest assured that I only carry brands that I would comfortable with my kids playing with.
Play It Safe Toys really does have a great selection of pretty much anything you could want for your child. Their site is very easy to navigate and has links that take you to different interests, age groups, and types of play. My kids loved browsing through the toys and earmarked many into the "Iwant" category!
Play It Safe Toys sent me two different toys for review. The first is for older children. It is their Traditional Wooden Stilts which retail for $50.00. These are for kids 8 and up.
These eco-friendly stilts are just like your favorite uncle used to make! We make them using regional hardwoods, like maple and beech. The uprights are available in two heights - 47-1/2" (#08804) or 57-1/2" tall (#08805). The footrests adjust from 5-1/2" to 14-1/2". The bottom position provides an extra large base for better balance. Stilt walking hints are included.
They shipped very quickly and came in a nice secure box with lots of padding. Assembly was quick and easy and my children were so excited to try them out! I noticed the wood is very smooth and well sanded so there are no slivers. Also they are very well made and the hardware is high quality so that there is no slipping or wiggling on the screws. It only took my two middle children ages 9 and 10 about 5 minutes to figure out how to use them and they LOVE them. unfortunately it has been really icy and snowy so we couldn't use them outside so all my pics are of the kids in the living room. These are going to be great this spring for the kids running around the yard!
The other toy is their Bathtub Ball Shark Tank $24.00 ages 3+.
I really like this toy. It is fun in the tub without leaching any harmful chemicals into the water. My son who is 5 loves playing with the toys it comes with and enacts many battles. One thing that is great about it is that you can throw it in the dishwasher for quick cleaning.
I would recommend Play It Safe Toys to anyone looking for toys they can trust! Things I like about Play It Safe Toys is the knowledge that the toys are non toxic and well made, selection, affordability, quick shipping, and good customer service.
