Eat Your Veggies!

Yep, those are my kids... playing happily together, sharing, using their amazing little imaginations, learning that vegetables are our FRIENDS. "Could one little set of toys do all of this at once?", you may be asking. Thanks to Under The Nile, the answer is yes!

Under the Nile is this amazing manufacturer of organic infant and children's apparel, toys, blankets and accessories. But they are SO MUCH more than that. Not only are they providing healthy toys for children, they're also providing healthier living conditions for impoverished people in Egypt.
Under the Nile participates in the 13 Villages Project, which brings work to women in villages that are desperate for better livelihood. Now THAT'S something worth sinking your teeth into!

My boys have been LOVING this Veggie Crate from Under The Nile's "Farmer's Market" collection. I'M loving that my kids are playing with safe toys from a company that is doing good around the world!

  1. I love Under The Nile. When our little girl was born we got her a couple sleepers and a hat made by them and they were worth every penny. The quality is fantastic!

    I'm also a sucker for anything Monkey so I would love one of their stuffed monkeys!
