With the recent scares about toxic toys and BPA-leaching plastics, it's wise to go green in the toy department this holiday season. It's surprisingly easy to make an eco-friendly choice when it comes to kid's toys. Plus, earth-friendly toys are made to last so, while you may pay a little extra, they'll be treasured heirlooms for years to come.
Who doesn't love a fantastic family board game for the holidays? Earthopoly ($24.95, LateforTheSky.com) is one of the best. Players become caretakers of natural locations and trade carbon credits for clean air. Made from recyclable paper and vegetable-based inks, this game is great fun and will teach the entire family how carbon credits work.
