Like all kids, my girls love toys. I try to provide them with as many toys that have educational value as possible. So when I stopped in the Endangered Species booth at Expo West, I fell in love with the company’s concept.
Created by Mom and Founder Laura Hite, Endangered Species offers eco-educational fun products for kids and babies. Laura has created a line of toys designed to teach young children about endangered animals while creating fun products that are environmentally friendly.
They offer a variety of unique bath toys, first aid products, activity sets, travel items and more. Endangered Species products use recycled packaging and a portion of every purchase of an Endangered Species product is donated to the Defenders of Wildlife Organization to help endangered animals.
One of my favorite things about Endangered Species is that they use “stone paper” that’s made from reclaimed limestone. It is durable, waterproof and tear resistant. And unlike traditional paper, it doesn’t use wood pulp – so it saves trees. The stone paper manufacturing process doesn’t use water, doesn’t emit toxic gas and doesn’t pollute. In addition, the stone paper is recyclable, bleach free and toxin free!
We got to review 2 wonderful products from Endangered Species
This fun set includes: Hypoallergenic Bubble Bath, 6 Bath Crayons, 10 Floating Animal Disks, Stone Paper Coloring Map, Animal ID Spinner and Rescue Net.
The girls have had a lot of fun playing with this set in the bathtub. They have the map stuck to the wall and they love coloring on it. It has held up extremely well – a true testament to the durability of the stone paper it’s made from. The animal disks also stick to the map so we can talk about which animals come from which continent.
I love the design of the crayons. They are a triangle shape so they don’t roll around. However, I didn’t realize how easily they’d melt in bath water, so next time we’ll be more careful to keep them stored on the side of the tub.
This set is great for kids who love animals and learning about their origins.
Whenever one of the girls falls down, I have always given them an ice pack. We were going through a phase with Zoë where she wanted nothing to do with the ice pack until we got this Turtle Cold Pack.
It’s soft and fuzzy like a stuffed animal, so it keeps your fingers warmer while you’re applying cold therapy.
But on the underside, the material is thinner so the cold from the pack inside can easily reach your kid’s owie.
Zoë is more than happy to use it now, which is great!
In addition to the Turtle, the cold pack is also available as a Seal or Panda Bear. We love our little ice pack. I wish they came in a larger size!
Overall, I have been quite impressed not only with Endangered Species’ mission, but also the quality and unique educational value their products offer. Be sure to check out the Endangered Species website and like their Facebook page.
