Our bestselling non-toxic craft supplies
Who wants their kids to use craft supplies that are full of nasty chemicals and toxins? Not us! Here are The Tot’s most popular natural craft products…
Did you know that everyday crafts supplies can contain a range of toxic chemicals including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), 1,4 Dioxane, lead and other heavy metals, and butylated compounds? These chemicals can cause everything from organ damage to cancer, so you want to make sure that your children aren’t exposed to them.
Even products labeled “natural” can sometimes hide harmful ingredients. Instead, look for products labeled “non-toxic”, “zero VOC” or “certified organic”.
To help you take the guesswork out of choosing craft supplies for your children, the Tot only sells products that are entirely free of toxins and safe for little hands. Here are our top bestsellers.

The Playon Crayon packs include 12 crayons made from 100 percent non-toxic wax. Their unique shape makes them stackable, easy for small hands to hold, and less likely to break or cause choking.
The Eco-Dough set is exploratory molding dough made with non GMO flour, salt, cream of tartar, soy oil, organic rosemary oil, vitamin e oil, water, citric acid, potassium sorbate, FDA approved soy based organic and inorganic pigments.
