This Week’s Happenings in the Park Street District: Calendar, November 21-27
When looking for Eco-Friendly and hip alternatives to conventional baby/toddler/big-kid gear, be sure to check out Monkey Bars, located at 1339 Park Street. The Earth-Friendly boutique specializes in Feeding, Clothing, Diapering, and Fun solutions for the busy but Earth-Conscious parent. The store even has goodies for grown-ups, making Monkey Bars your one-stop spot for Going Green this Holiday Season.
Here are a few gift ideas from Heather Rider Reed, owner of Monkey Bars:
Toys… Toys inspire a child’s imagination and helps them to develop physically and intellectually. Children can spend hours playing with their toys. To make playtime safe think about purchasing wood toys colored with natural dyes or plush toys made from organic cotton instead of the usual plastic that clutters homes.
Clothing… Since clothing is in constant contact with a baby’s and toddler’s skin, it is important to choose items made of organic cotton and non-toxic dyes. Clothes that are irresistibly soft and adorable can also make dressing a little one fun for parents.
Sleeping… Babies spend up to 16 hours a day in their cribs, so it’s best when a baby’s crib is a cozy, comforting place to rest. By purchasing bedding made of soft organic cotton and non-toxic dyes, you avoid harsh chemicals that could come in constant contact with a little one’s sensitive skin. Furniture and textiles are also an important piece to consider when addressing the air quality in our homes.
Diapers… Diapers are a daily part of life with a new baby. The average baby goes through a whopping 8,000 diapers before they are potty trained. A number of companies now provide diapers made from more natural ingredients that are gentler on baby’s bottom… and the planet.
Not sure what you need for a new baby? Heather and her staff are there to help with The Monkey Bars Gift Registry (complete with your very own Personal Shopper!). Spend 30-45 minutes with them, and you’ll be all set for your baby shower!
Exhale… Monkey Bars loves you!
