Pink Toys

Pink is probably one of the most common colors you'll find on a child's toy -- just look at the girls' toy section at any store -- but this October, a pink toy could mean a whole lot more than sugar and spice. Here's a selection of toys out on the market that donate a portion of their sales to breast cancer research:

Even babies can help in the fight against breast cancer! Baby toy company Bright Starts has a collection of toys -- the Pretty in Pink collection -- that donate a portion of all sales towards breast cancer research. The collection includes an activity gym, toy bar, rattle, blocks, bracelets, teethers, and other adorably pink baby toys. The baby girls of today will grow into the women of tomorrow, and it's never too early for them to help!
Zubels' breast cancer awareness bear -- the Lynn Sage Bear -- is hand made by talented artisans using 100% organic cotton eco-friendly yarns. Even better, 100% of the profits from the sale of this bear will go to the Lynn Sage Foundation for breast cancer research-- and you can buy this pink ribbon bear not just in October, but year round.
Zoobie Pets are thinking pink for this month's Breast Cancer Campaign! These loveable plush animals are part toy, part blanket and all cuteness. There's no better time to pick up your very own pink pet than now, because when you order online today at, you get 10% off when you type in "awareness" as a coupon code! Zoobies will also donate an additional 10% toward breast cancer awareness for every purchase with the code. Order from their selection of pink pets, like Hada the Hippo™.
I've always loved Oriental Trading, and now I love them even more. Because From June 1, 2010 - June 1, 2011, Oriental Trading will donate $3.00 of the $5.99 retail sales price of each Pink Ribbon Rubber Duckies set sold to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® with a minimum guaranteed donation of $100,000.
While walking the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, I passed quite a few people selling pink-ribbon themed items, mostly to raise money for their own 3-Day walks. I bought these Bandz of Hope as soon as I saw them, because my kids love Silly Bands and I was happy to help someone meet their fundraising minimums. What I didn't know is that the site that sells them, Shopping For A Cure, also donates all net proceeds from sales to the Susan G. Komen foundation. So my kids are happy, the person I bought it from gets $5 more towards her walk, and money gets donated to breast cancer research. Brilliant!

BTW, you can find more great products benefiting breast cancer research on this blog. Only 11 days in October, stay tuned for more Pink Posts!
