Good for Kids and Planet

Positive childhood development. ChildTrek is an advocate of children's positive childhood development. We understand that children learn through play and why we carefully select toys, books and gifts that promote lasting social, physical, emotional and intellectual well-being. We offer products that are informed by groundbreaking early learning research, true and tried traditional wisdom, and the realities and challenges of parenting and caregiving.

Eco-friendly practices. ChildTrek believes that one of the best legacies we can leave our children is a healthy, vibrant and prosperous planet. To that end, ChildTrek carefully selects toys and other children's goods that promote sustainable existence with our beautiful world. Most are made of sustainable materials and earth-friendly practices.

Certifiably-safe. All the toys offered at ChildTrek meet or exceed North American and / or European safety standards. They are independently certified child-safe and non-toxic.

ChildTrek also features toys made under fair-trade practices to promote world prosperity.

ChildTrek Founder

Miebeth Bustillo-BoothChildTrek was founded by Miebeth Bustillo-Booth, a former teacher, in 2007. She created ChildTrek to marry interests around toy safety, positive educational development, and environmental stewardship. She believed then as she does today that these principles are linked: Non-toxic, educational toys are both safe for our children and better for our planet. Learn more about "How ChildTrek Was Born."

It dedicates a section on its web site called Parents' Corner, a collection of resources where parents and caregivers can find information and helpful tips about such topics as How to Care for a Newborn, What a Toddler Needs, and How to Develop Your Child's Language Skills.

In the spirit of offering high-quality toys that are good for kids and planet, ChildTrek is committed to doing good in the world. That's why we are donating a portion of profits to charitable organizations.
