Non-Toxic Dinosaur Toys

Non-toxic dinosaur toys and educational books from Prehistoric Pals

The importance of using non-toxic materials in children's toys cannot be overstated. Child development and psychology research consistently underscore the critical role these toys play in a child's early years. Children explore the world through their senses, often putting toys in their mouths as part of this exploration. Exposure to toxic materials can have detrimental effects on their physical health, potentially causing long-term harm. Non-toxic dinosaur toys safeguard a child’s physical well-being while promoting interactive, engaging, and educational play. In this post we compare the toxicity of some common toy materials before highlighting three of the best non-toxic dinosaur toys.

Choosing Safe Toys for Kids: Materials to Avoid

Many mass-produced kids’ toys contain a variety of materials with names that are misleading or difficult to pronounce, making it hard to tell what’s safe. Below are some common toy materials and their relative toxicity, sorted from those that are highly toxic to those that are not toxic at all.

Toxic vs Non Toxic Materials in Children’s Toys
Material Toxicity
Lead-based paint Highly toxic
Phthalates (e.g., DEHP, DBP, BBP) Highly toxic
BPA (Bisphenol-A) Moderately toxic
Flame retardants (e.g., PBDEs) Moderately toxic
Acrylic paints Low toxicity
PVC Non-toxic
Natural wood Non-toxic
ABS polyester Non-toxic

Tender Leaf Brachiosaurus

This Brachiosaurus toy from Tender Leaf is made of non-toxic, recyclable wood, making it both safe and sustainable. Standing around 4” tall and 6” wide, this cute dinosaur toy is great for imaginative play and easily fits in the toybox.

XY-WQ Mold Free Dinosaur Bath Toys

This set of endearing dinosaur bath toys from XY-WQ are the perfect size and texture for little ones to catch and play with in the tub. Made of non-toxic PVC, these toys are sealed with food-grade epoxy lue to prevent water from getting in and allowing mold to grow. The set also comes with a mesh bag to make drying and storage a breeze.

PVC and food-grade epoxy glue 7/10 - The epoxy glue will deteriorate and let water in 1-3 years $12.99  7/10 - Gets very young children interested in dinosaurs

These bath toys get a 7/10 rating overall. While the materials are non-toxic and the toy is advertised as mold-free, the epoxy glue will eventually deteriorate and allow water to get inside, allowing mold to grow and making the toy unusable. The dino bath toys don’t bring any extra educational value, but they are great for getting very young kids interested in learning more about dinosaurs.
