Toys That Won't De-Chicify My Home

Written by: Ruthie Friedlander

Not only does it seem like your kids go through them faster than a freshly purchased package of Cheddar Bunnies, but for anyone with even the tiniest bit of design acumen, it’s hard to deny the simple truth that most of them are, well…an eyesore. 

You’ve spent countless hours on Pinterest curating the perfect playroom (read: tiny section in your home you pretend is a playroom) only to look around and see large, jagged-edged, plastic things strewn all over in colors that are most definitely not found in nature. 

There must be a better way!

We scoured the world to find toys that would fit into the chicest of homes that (most importantly) your kids will still actually want to play with. Added bonus: we’re proud to have hand-picked options from the most unique vendors, many of whom work exclusively with sustainable, eco-friendly resources. Shop our favorites, here.
