If you're a parent, especially of small kids, you understand the value of upcycled toys in your home. But what we don't realize is how essential it is to identify and purchase the appropriate type of toy. As new parents, we go out of our way to ensure that everything is safe, clean, and BPA-free for our children. We gradually begin to introduce items without being aware of the chemicals and toxins they contain. In India, an alarming 90% of a child's toy collection is invariably and unknowingly made up of plastic toys as they are inexpensive and widely available, which is why most Indian parents purchase them.

However, apart from being made of hazardous plastic that is harmful to babies' health, many plastic toys are battery/electronically operated. These toys not only contribute to the already-growing e-waste problem, but they also slow down the brain development process. As in such toys, the infant is not playing with the toy; rather, the toy does all of the work. Parents must be extremely careful when giving such products to their children. Upcycled toys on the other hand seem to make things easier for new parents as they are mindfully created by keeping your baby's health and interests in mind.


What are Upcycled Toys?

Thoughtfully created for your baby, Upcycling is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, or unwanted products into new and useful materials/products. SuperBottoms upcycled baby toys are made from the leftover fabric from cutting out your favorite sustainable baby essentials. As a result, they are both safe for your baby and the environment.

Why Choose Upcycled or Sustainable Toys For Kids

Childhood refers to the formative years of a person's life. During this time, children's activities shape their cognitive and physical development. As a parent, it is essential to choose only high-quality toys for your children. Rather than opting for plastic alternatives, it is preferable to choose sustainable toys, and here are 5 reasons why:-

1. Hazardous Chemicals

Toxic chemicals found in plastic toys include Biphenyl A and phthalates, which are known endocrine disruptors linked to birth defects, autoimmune disease, and neurological and reproductive damage. An upcycled toy is a risk-free sustainable alternative!

2. Plastic Pollution

Toys are extremely difficult to recycle, which means that every plastic toy ever manufactured will end up in a landfill and in the oceans, these contribute to the ongoing problem of plastic pollution. It is extremely crucial to raise awareness about Mother Earth so that these children can see a green planet.

3. Foster Creativity

Providing children with toys made of natural elements like fabric, and organic materials can garner interest and generate curiosity. Children connect much faster to their environment and surroundings with such materials, leading to a push in their imagination and creativity.

4. Big Savings

Plastic toys do not last long because they are made of a low-cost material. Every month, parents unconsciously purchase several more products, resulting in higher spending. Organic material toys are more durable, and you'll need fewer toys in the long run if you switch to the right kind.

It is difficult to keep track of everything that happens inside our children's systems in this era, but it is also wonderful to see the variety of options and ease of access.

5. Space Crunch

In India where almost every household experiences the problem of space crunch, not everyone has the space to collect a variety of toys. Choosing minimalism when purchasing new toys for children is a big responsibility. Fortunately, sustainable or upcycled animal toys are commonly designed to keep the child entertained for longer periods, so one toy can be used for days without them becoming bored.
