A friend just asked me to recommend some natural toy sites and thought I'd share:
i've ordered mostly from www.rosiehippo.com and www.hazelnutkids.com they have a range of prices; some not too expensive, some expensive. I've also ordered from www.threesisterstoys.com you get free shipping in the us with code MOTHERING ... from Mothering magazine ad
the place where I've found the best deals on safe, non-toxic toys was the most recent order for Angelo's birthday (so I was looking in the 2 year old range instead of baby range, but probably still will find some good ones). I bought lots of Melissa and Doug toys (guaranteed non-toxic coatings, lots of wooden toys. really cool options haven't seen in other lines. occasionally there's a plastic piece, but are really good over all- pic is of Angelo with his M & D "Pets" chunky puzzle) from www.fatbraintoys.com They have a natural/organic _section_ with lots of M & D toys. be sure you stay in that section because they also sell "regular" toys.
