Unique Green Toys for Little Ones


St. Patrick’s Day is next week! Like many other small holidays, I think it’s fun to celebrate with a few special things – Maybe with green pancakes, a fun shamrock craft project, and a special new gift for my kiddos. We don’t go crazy with St. Patrick’s Day, but we still like to make it special. If you are looking for a fun green toy to give your little leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day, here are some great ones to choose from!



1 – This recycling truck by Green Toys is absolutely fabulous. (We actually have the pink one and my girls LOVE it!) The best part about it is that it’s made in the US from recycled milk containers! How cool is that!?!

2 – Even our tiniest babes need a little something special on St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s a handmade wooden and green crocheted teething ring from Koukku on Etsy. Ease those teething pains with a bit of Irish luck!

3 – Toddlers love to pull things around the house! This adorable wooden pull-along frog from Melissa & Doug will be a favorite! (Both of my daughters LOVED this toy from about 16-24 months!)

4 – Imaginative play is so important, too! Here’s a fun creative toy featuring a chickadee, her eggs, and a bowl and scoop from Mama May I on Etsy. Your little guy or gal will have fun learning to count with this cute toy.

5 – And because 1 teether is not enough, here’s an adorable wooden shamrock teether from Little Sapling Toys on Etsy. My daughter has one of their handmade teethers and I can attest to how wonderful they are!



6 – Here’s a fun toy for your imaginative preschooler – a take-along pocket toy from Mama May I on Etsy. This little set features a tiny wooden friend and some things to make a house a home.

7 – Stuffed animals are a necessity for nearly every stage of childhood. Whether you have a baby or an older child, they’ll love this handmade bear dressed in green from Finkelsteins on Etsy.

8 – Busy babies love things that shake, rattle, and roll! This adorable handmade tree rattle from Stephanie Monroe on Etsy ┬áis the sweetest little gift and would make a perfect St. Patrick’s Day surprise for your little bundle.

9 – Have a little one with an aversion to veggies? Surely they’ll begin to love greens with this adorable broccoli friend from Ikea. It’s great for all ages and will hopefully encourage them to eat their vegetables!

10 – So many dolls are made with girls in mind, but here’s one perfect for little boys! This dude doll from Sweet Littles Handmade on Etsy will be the perfect companion for your little guy!

11 – Last but not least, this green tree standing puzzle from Art Gift Store on Etsy is just so neat! (And inexpensive, too!) Keep your little problem solver busy with this earth-friendly toy.
