Here are some of my favorite brands of non-toxic toys:

Yellow Label Kids  Absolutely gorgeous handmade toys that are fair trade.  I love their knit toys, especially their play food.  http://www.yellowlabelkids.com/

HABA   Wooden and cloth toys with water-based, solvent-free stains.  Made in Germany.  They offer a number of safe baby toys.  I especially like their play food.  http://www.oompa.com/cgi-bin/category/HabaToys

PlanToys  From their website: “All PlanToys® are made with clean, natural rubberwood from rubber trees which no longer produce latex. To keep the rubberwood pure, no fertilizer is added to the soil for three years before the trees are cut. To strengthen the wood, PlanToys® uses a special chemical-free kiln drying process.  PlanToys® are assembled using a proprietary, non-formaldehyde E-Zero.  PlanToys® does not use dyes containing lead or any other heavy metals. We use only safe, non-toxic water-based dyes on all of our toys.”  I love their dollhouse accessories.  http://www.plantoys.com/

Oompa Toys  A wide selection of toys made in the United States and in Europe.  You can purchase toys from all of the above-named brands here.  They provide thorough information on all of the brands of toys that they sell.  They also offer a number of other safe children’s products, such as lunchboxes and backpacks.  “No batteries.  No blinking lights.  No cartoon-themed toys.  Period.”  http://www.oompa.com/
