Eco Soft

Just in time for Earth Day on April 22, these soft playthings are as environmentally responsible as they are cuddly.


With a purchase of each Treefie, a Beanie Baby-like stuffed animal, a tree is planted in your child’s honor. A leaf insignia embroidered on the animal serves as a reminder of the green cause. Your child can also log onto Treefies.com to download an official certificate, and play games that teach about the environment. $5.99. Available at Amazon.com.

Good Earth Girl Ballerina

Unlike many of its plastic and synthetic counterparts in the doll world, miYim’s Good Earth Girl Ballerina is completely organic. She’s made from unbleached, unprocessed cotton and colored in soy inks. Yet being green hardly means being boring. This fabric, foot-tall blonde ballerina, posed in a pirouette, has a ruffly pink tu-tu and blushing cheeks. $24.99.
