Take a Peek


Once upon a time there were toys for kids that were eco-friendly and there were toys that kids liked to play with. Rarely did the two overlap, leaving the eco-conscious, green-living parent at a loss.
Fortunately for modern Ottawa families, there is a place called Peek-a-boo Natural Toys & Accessories on Wellington St. West. It’€™s a bright space filled with fabulous toys and clothes for babies and kids.

This mom- and kid-focused store was opened by Hulya Bayras with a mandate to show kids how to have a positive affect on the earth. They sell only organic, natural, chemical-free, eco-friendly and zero footprint toys, clothing and accessories. Designed for imaginative play, we like the red double-decker London Bus by Le Toy Van, which begs to be zoomed across the floor and filled with sightseeing tourists. A fabric shadow theatre by France’€™s Moulin Roty would be ideal for a dark and rainy afternoon. And we’€™d like to place an order for a boiled egg and two pieces of chocolate, please and thank you very much. Even wooden chocolate from the Soopsori Birthday Cake Set tastes good, apparently.

Open your imagination up to the possibilities that old-school toys can bring, and let your child’€™s imagination run wild.
