Natural Pod’s Blocks Chosen as TOP 10 ECO-TOYS 2009
Tree Branch Blocks Prove to Be One of the Hottest Toys of the Season!

(Vancouver, BC) – In its eco-standard setting approach to toys, Natural Pod sets the future’s foundation with some small green building blocks. Natural Pod, the leading online retailer of natural toys and only Canadian company to make the list announced this morning, is the designer and manufacturer of these organic, award winning beauties.

Now in its second year, The 2009 Eco-Friendly Toy Test is the joint-collaboration of Goddard Systems (named the number one child care franchise company for the eighth year in a row by Entrepreneur magazine) and Eco-Child’s Play (a leading “green” blog). Test entries were evaluated on a number of criteria, including

• affordability ($30 and under)
• age appropriateness (for preschoolers and early elementary)
• level of creativity and socialization engaged
• eco-friendliness
• child-initiated interactivity

“When our locally-made, beeswax-finished, kiln-dried alder Tree Branch Blocks get called eco-friendly it’s no surprise really,” says Bridgitte Alomes, founder of Natural Pod. “What is always astonishing, though, is to witness firsthand the kind of open-ended imaginative play such simplicity can foster. That’s when the magic begins.”

Appropriate for ages 2 to 8 a small set of the Tree Branch Blocks come in a locally made natural cotton bag and retails for $29.95. Consisting of many unique pieces of various diameters and lengths, still covered in a  thin layer of bark with smooth finished ends, these rustic blocks offer the ultimate in open-ended building
stimulation. Natural Pod’s line of small and large exclusive toys (many architecturally designed) are represented throughout North America at fine retail outlets and spaces of learning as well as online at www.naturalpod.com.
“We are thrilled to be in the company of some of today’s most progressive green companies,” says Alomes, “and that green is becoming the new norm. We are also extremely grateful to our customers, whose use of their spending power to promote social change benefits us all.”

The other 9 companies on the Top Ten list plus more information can be found at

Natural Pod (www.naturalpod.com) is a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of natural children’s toys that are environmentally responsible, inspire imaginative and creative play, and become heirlooms for families, educators and retailers.
