If disposable diapers, plastic toys, and baby superstores are turning your tot into another landfill-clogging, conscience-free capitalist, ease your tortured soul at this socially-conscious shop. Each toy has a feel-good factor: Jamtown's three-piece music kit contains instruments made in Peru and Indonesia and purchased under Fair Trade principles. Pastel Toys' weathered-blue blocks were crafted by disabled people on an Israeli kibbutz. Dutch-born owner Carin Van Der Donk, a former fashion model and mother of two, opened the store in 2003 after reading about worker abuse in China, where many toys are made. "For that extra 50 cents or $10 you're going to pay for a handcrafted or Fair Trade toy," she argues, "you're saving whole environments and cultures."
