Pure Play Kids– it just doesn’t get much better!!

Image Ohhhhh my goodness– there is little that’s more fun than opening a large box of goodies from Pure Play Kids!!! I adore our new additions sooooo much!  My son’s 3rd birthday is coming up in a couple weeks so I got several things for him which I’ll share later in a different post, but I wanted to show some of the items I got for my Baby Girl, who is just about 8 months currently. I spent a lot of time researching trying to find an organic doll made in the US of completely US sourced materials, and did not find one that met all those criteria, at least not for under a couple hundred dollars for some Waldorf options (great if you can afford them!). Pure Play is as close as you can get to what I wanted. The dolls are hand stitched in the US from organic fabric imported from South Korea, and are GOTS certified organic inside & out. I was pleasantly surprised by how large it was, from the website pic I was expecting it to be smaller. For $30 I could NOT be happier with her. I also got an organic cotton star which is awake on one side, asleep on the other and the other side you can’t see is yellow. I did branch out a bit & make my first Haba purchase through Pure Play, the rattle & ball are made in Germany. I’ve had several people tell me that if I want truly the safest products I’d support made in Europe more, and I agree they have stricter safety standards which makes me happy! My goal is to find truly safe products that would meet European standards, while supporting made in the USA. But, I did want to add a bit more color & variety to my Baby Girl’s safe toy offerings, so decided to add these.

The Pure Play folks (Mike & Tania, who are super amazing & dedicated to made in the USA as much as possible) have told me they plan to increase their made in the USA rattle selection, and are always open to new ideas too. I’m going to put in a request for a boy doll to go with the couple of girls that are offered! All together I spent $200, which yes is a lot of money, but I feel I got SO much for that money, and other than the 2 items from Haba my entire order is made in the USA! My sister added a couple things to my order for her daughter’s Easter basket, one of the items she ordered was a magnetic farm set. I didn’t pay attention when ordering it to see where it was made, but did not expect it to be made in the USA (Pure Play offers many made in Europe items too, but NOTHING made in China!). Sure enough, it is indeed made in the USA, and they have a whole selection of different magnet sets which I am so happy to have learned about. I’ve looked for, and been asked about magnets in the past & for some reason my searches did not lead me back to Pure Play, but now that I know I will be spreading the word!!

    I have been looking for a organic doll for my babe too, and although awesome, those waldorf dolls are super price like you said. I am definitely going to get this one! And my next purchase is going to be a lil baby carrier so she can carry her doll like I carry her 😀 thanks for sharing!

      And, they generously created a coupon code for my page!!! I just sent a message to see when it expires, but here it is: ECOUSA15. 2 of the dolls are organic cotton inside & out, 2 of them have some sort of recycled fill, I’m thinking I’ll add those when by Baby Girl is older, but am sticking with the organic cotton for now!
