Chewing on plastic toys may be harmful to children, so what are the alternatives? All young children explore new toys with their mouths and chewing/biting relieves some of the teething strain in infants. What your child puts into their mouth is very important, and Under the Nile offers organic fruit and vegetables toys that are perfect! The fruit and vegetables can be purchased individually or in a group crate. Made in Egypt of organic materials, you do not need to worry about your child placing this toy in their mouth. One of my best friends from high school gave me the carrot when my first child was five months old. The organic carrot quickly became her favorite toy, and we all laughed about this simple toy that was favored above all the other ones she had received for Christmas. The carrot went everywhere with us and because it is made of natural materials, the carrot is easily and quickly washed by hand. Later, we added the banana to our collection of Under the Nile organic fruit and vegetables. These toys are affordable and give parents the peace of mind needed during the difficult teething times.
