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!
