Toy of the month – Eco-finger paint

With eco-finger paint children learn about how to represent their ideas and how to use their imagination and creativity. Whilst having fun and developing their skills, they play with the handmade eco-finger paint which contains natural ingredients.

The eco-finger paint is made from natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, beets, carrots, curcuma, purple sweet potato, red cabbage and spinach, flour, cornflour, wheat paste, and earth clay. In addition, the eco-finger paint is packaged in recycled materials, which are printed with soy ink and the help of wind power.

The benefits of babywearing

Here at greenBee we want to positively influence your baby’s development skills. This is why we also love for babies to be carried in .
My wife and I have carried our daughter since she was 4 weeks old – and we still carry her (she is now 16 months old).

Babywearing

I genuinely believe that carrying her had a great positive effect on her physical and mental development. It is said that Babies who are carried learn more, stimulating brain development and expanding their future learning potential.

Our favourite toy of the month - Green Doll's house with Furniture

The doll's house is made of organic rubber wood from rubber trees which no longer produce latex. It is assembled using a certified E-Zero glue in place of traditional toxic wood glue. Only safe, non-toxic water-based dyes are used.


This wooden eco-efficient doll's house includes a windmill, a solar panel and electric inverter for generating electricity, a rain barrel for collecting rain, a bio-facade, which uses the natural cycle of plant growth to provide shading, and a blind which can adjust the amount of sunlight and air circulation. Also, recycling bins are included in the set. The bedding is made of organic cotton.
We love the doll's house because it is a great educational tool and great way to teach household/family responsibility and values.
