Beautiful hand knitted and crochet ethical toys


Best Years have been specialising in making ethical toys for over 10 years and are truly passionate about toys. They love how they help imaginative play, and help cement friendships. They love how children create worlds around their toys and this is why they feel that toys should be as special as the children who play with them.

Not only do we think that Best Years have the cutest toys around but all their toys are uniquely suited to the needs of young children. Knitted and crochet toys bring a tactile quality to baby toys which is great for helping sensory development. They are also robust enough to stand up to even the most active of toddler play. And it helps that all their toys are machine washable too!

These toys have it all – fun, engaging, loads of play value, tactile, bright, practical. What more could you ask for?

Well on top of all that Best Years are an ethical company and making sure all their toys are ethically produced is something they are extremely passionate about. They found a wonderful factory to make their first knitted dinosaur toys over 10 years ago, and since then they have partnered with a wonderful fair trade cooperative who hand make knitted and crochet toys for them in rural Bangladesh creating thousands of fairly paid and flexible jobs in the process.

The collection consists of a large number of toys, rattles and comforters to suit all ages, from dinosaurs and astronauts to mermaids and unicorns.
