8 Eco-Friendly Gifts

Organic toys and gear for mom and baby

Ready for Duty
Zo-Li’s Baby Ohm Changing Mat is PVC- and latex-free, skidproof, and photodegradable — it’ll fully decompose after just a year in the sun. ($20;


Watch your lil” bunny’s face light up when you lift the flaps in Peter Rabbit Peekaboo! to see where that mischievous rabbit and his friends are hiding. ($7; at bookstores)

Stick To It

The Soft Buggy Cup attaches to your stroller with Velcro and holds everything from coffee to keys to animal crackers. Best of all, it folds flat with the stroller. ($15;

Change is Good

Bassinets are useless after about 4 months, but BabyPlanet’s Eden Convertible Bassinet turns into a seat your child can use till he’s 3 years old. Plus, BabyPlanet will recycle the whole thing when you’re done with it. ($150;

Hello, Dolly

Dolls are typically designed for toddlers, but your baby can cuddle up to these plush-bodied cuties from birth. Plus, they’re machine-washable. ($25 to $35;

World Mat

The three-arch design of the Fisher-Price Precious Planet All Around Musical Playtime Gym makes it easier to get your baby on and off the mat, where he can frolic with all the creatures of the land and the sea. ($65;

Use It — or Lose It?

Sure, babies can be slippery when wet, but do you really need to don special gloves to get a grip? The folks behind BellyLaf Grippees ($17;, mittens with silicone bumps on the palms, think so. How ’bout you?
