Teething toys are among the most popular selling items for babies and we have a few on our list. The first is this collection of plastic shapes that are designed to look like a set of keys. Teething toys are designed to go in your baby's mouth so the material has to be safe and free of chemicals or other harmful toxic components. Green Toys prides themselves on their eco-friendly products and their My First Keys baby toy is not only food-safe but manufactured from recycled plastic and meets all FDA standards for a toy that can be placed in the mouth. Best of all, despite being shaped like keys each toy on the ring contains no sharp edges or points.

3. Maple Landmark Mini-Monster Car

Babies can spark their imagination with this wooden car from Maple Landmark. Based in Vermont, the company makes three different vehicle styles, a car, a truck, and a bus, all of which are constructed from sustainably sourced rock maple wood. Each toy measures nearly four inches in length and three inches in height, and comes with big wheels that roll easily on just about any type of surface The construction process uses laser engraving for the aesthetic details and since any toy is inevitably going to end up in your baby's mouth, Maple Landmark doesn't use any chemical coatings or finishes. There are no removable components either, so it's completely safe for baby to play with any time.

4. CelebriDucks The Good Duck Yellow Rubber Ducky Teether Made in U

The good people at Celebriducks set out to build a better rubber ducky because most American moms out there felt that all of the ducks currently on the market were not healthy or safe enough for infants. So the company created a rubber ducky that was perfect for playtime in the bath by using medical-grade resin material that is free of PVC, BPA's, lead, paraben, latex, and paints that were too toxic for an infant to place in the mouth. This is the safest rubber ducky you'll ever buy and your baby will love it. Non-toxic and small enough for tiny hands to hold. It even floats on water, like a rubber ducky should.

5. Maple Landmark Shape Sorter Round Cage

Another product from Maple Landmark makes the list, this time it's their Shape Sorter Round Cage. Measuring six inches in length and five inches in diameter, the cage holds 12 shapes that babies can insert and remove through the holes at the end. This educational toy introduces your baby to the concept of shapes with pieces shaped like a square, circle, triangle, and rectangle, and teaches the child to match the correct shape with the appropriate hole. Everything has been made with locally harvested hardwood and the cage and shapes have been colored with water-based dye stain instead of harmful paints.

6. WowieStar Silicone Baby Teether

This baby teether has been constructed of FDA certified medical grade silicone that is free of chemicals and contains no phthalates, latex, or rubber materials. The starfish shape makes the teether easy to grab with tiny infant hands and your baby can chew on it from any angle while still allowing for front teeth and back molars to make contact with the toy. It's also heat and cold resistant so feel free to drop it in boiling water or the dishwasher.

7. Montessori Inspired All Natural Wooden Baby Development and Discovery Set

This collection of toys is made from birch, maple, and other natural materials to promote educational discovery through touch and puzzle solving.

9. Suction Cup Buddy Bathtub Toy Organizer Holder

Babies love playing in the bathtub but sometimes Mommy and Daddy can get beleaguered by the amount of toys floating and sinking, not to mention being thrown around by a happy and excited baby. Well now you can get this toy organizer holder that attaches to the wall via suction cup. The mesh bag is large enough to fit everything yet doesn't pose a choking hazard if the baby should try to put it over his or her head.
