From a very young age, lucky children may learn an appreciation for nature’s elements and time. If you want a gift that will inspire a love for nature, help kids learn about flowers, mushrooms, birds, and set a bucolic mood for playtime cottagecore toys is a beautiful idea!

I rounded up the sweetest toy inspired by the cottagecore aesthetic and lifestyle. So, all the toys in this post are gentle, made of wood or hypoallergenic fabric, and use non-toxic water-based dyes. That way, not only you’re baby will be exposed to visual nature’s stimulus, but will play with toys that are harmless to his health and to nature! We go by European and American standards and you can read more about them here.

The Best & Safest Non-Toxic Play Food for Kids

Sustainable & Non-Toxic standards considered for this post

Each country or economic bloc has its own standards for sustainability, safety, and toxicity. And because they can go from strict to almost nonexistent we are considering brands that market their products as compliant with at least one of the standards below.

FSC-certified wood

From the fsc.org website : “The Forest Stewardship Council sets standards for responsible forest management. A voluntary program, FSC uses the power of the marketplace to protect forests for future generations.

FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits. “


⚠️ Because there is not a large consensus whether the formaldehyde emissions under the TSCA Title IV is really safe and nontoxic, we are only featuring MDF/plywood as alternatives to real wood.

From the epa.gov website : “The Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act of 2010 established emission standards for formaldehyde from composite wood products and directed EPA to finalize a rule on implementing and enforcing a number of provisions covering composite wood products. After March 22, 2019, composite wood products must be labeled as TSCA Title VI compliant. These products include: hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, and particleboard, as well as household and other finished goods containing these products. 

The final rule also established a third-party certification program for laboratory testing and oversight of formaldehyde emissions from manufactured and/or imported composite wood products.”

CE Marking

From the europa. eu website : “CE marking indicates that a product has been assessed by the manufacturer and deemed to meet EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements. It is required for products manufactured anywhere in the world that are then marketed in the EU.”


EN-71 is the CE standard for toy safety. The EN-71 covers 12 toy-related safety issues, from mechanical properties to flammability. The disposition EN-71-3 covers the migration of toxic elements, and that’s why toys compliant with the CE marks and the EN-71 disposition are considered non-toxic. From the standard.eu : “This document specifies requirements and test methods for the migration of aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, boron, cadmium, Chromium (III), Chromium (VI), cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, selenium, strontium, tin, organic tin and zinc from toy materials and from parts of toys. Packaging materials are not considered to be part of the toy unless they have intended play value.”

Nordic Swan Ecolabel

From the nordic-ecolabel.org website : “The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is the official ecolabel of the Nordic Countries. The Nordic Swan Ecolabel works to reduce the environmental impact from production and consumption of goods – and to make it easy for consumers and professional buyers to choose the environmentally best goods and services.

Sets strict environmental requirements in all relevant phases of a product’s life cycle;
