Pick child-powered not battery-powered.
Instead of….Battery operated toys for babies
Try this….Baby-operated rattles and other toys that make sound when moved.
Instead of….Videos or computer games
Try this….A gift certificate for the family to visit the zoo, science center or museum.
Instead of….A plastic battery powered vacuum cleaner that talks
Try this….A child-sized broom and feather duster.
Instead of….Noisy, battery operated cars, trucks and dolls
Try this….Cars, trucks, and dolls where the energy and sound effects are supplied by your child!
