We have pulled together a range of toys that are sustainable, and eco-friendly, using recycled plastics, and recyclable packaging. All of these toys play a part in cutting down on waste, to make our planet a healthier place to be.

Eco Friendly Tactile Sea Shells, Edx Education

This Tactile Sea Shells set from Edx Education contains 36 shells in six different textures and three sizes, which are perfect for counting and sorting, or even for making great patterns in play dough.  For more of a challenge, why not place the shells in the cloth bag for your child to try and match the patterns and sizes through touch alone?
