fairtradealpacawoolfingerpuppets.gifTry as I might to avoid battery-operated toys, we still have several of them in our home. Not surprisingly, most of these toys don’t work because I’m notoriously bad at replacing batteries — hence, my love for anything not battery-operated. Plus (and I think this goes without saying) batteries are pretty ungreen and thus when we highlight toys on The Green Mom Review, you’ll pretty much  never see “batteries required” on the packaging. Take these finger puppets available from Best Baby Organics. If you’ve got fingers and an imagination, you’re ready to play! Now, that’s my kind of toy! Hand-knitted by Peruvian Artisans in the Andes Mountains, these fair-trade finger puppets come in over 90 different animal and characters including jungle, farm, domestic, exotic, ocean animals, insects, cartoons and more! You can designate which five puppets you’d like or let Best Baby Organics pick for you and be surprised.
