Our Committment

To the Environment

Five Little Monkeys, as the first toy store to become a Green Certified Bay Area Business, offers a unique selection of toys whose impact on the environment is minimal. When selecting our toys we look at where they are made, what they are made from, and where they will end up. We prefer toys with minimal packaging and especially those whose packaging is biodegradable and/or recyclable.

Here is a list of 25 things we do to be green:

  1. Recycle! Plastic, Glass, Paper, and more!
  2. Reuse boxes and shipping material
  3. Encourage staff to bring lunch in re-useable tupperware instead of plastic baggies
  4. Ask if customers need a bag rather than assume
  5. Offer quality toys that last a long time so they can be passed on and won't end up in landfill
  6. Avoid products with excessive packaging
  7. Install low-flow water fixtures
  8. When possible, limit deliveries to full van loads.
  9. Use both sides of paper before recycling it
  10. Encourage staff to walk, take public transit, or bike to work
  11. Carry products made from renewable resources, recycled materials, and organic cloth
  12. Use energy star rated equipment
  13. Re-use paper scraps and paper clips instead of post-its
  14. Run several errands at once when driving
  15. Use dry-erase boards and emails for employee memos instead of paper
  16. Donate damaged toys to organizations who fix them and reuse them
  17. Use airflow from open windows and doors for cooling
  18. Purchase supplies made from recycled materials
  19. Support other local green businesses
  20. Walk to do errands
  21. Use biodegradable, recyclable shopping bags made from recycled paper
  22. Drive a hybrid company car
  23. Place fewer larger orders for merchandise to save on fuel consumption
  24. Use non-toxic, biodegradable cleaning products
  25. Use a timer and occupancy sensors for our bathroom light switch
To the Community

We believe in supporting the community that supports us! By donating to local schools and non-profit organizations, sponsoring youth sports teams and events, and mentoring youth we give back.

If you are a local school looking for a donation we ask that all requests be put in writing. Include your organization's tax ID # and event date. Please understand that we get hundreds of donation submissions each year and do our best to accommodate every qualifying request, however they do take time for processing. We will call your contact person when your donation is ready for pick up. If you are looking for a donation, please email donations@5littlemonkeys.com. Due to extreme demand, donations are limited to one per school per calendar year.

To Toy Safety

Your child's safety is our first priority. When selecting our products we only buy from reputable companies who share our commitment to putting safe, high quality toys in the hands of your children. Our products meet or exceed all current laws and regulations governing juvenile products. With daily email updates from the CPSC we are able to react expediently to any recalls, pulling toys from our shelves and notifying our customers as necessary.

Helpful tips for buying safe toys:

Be a label reader. Look for toy labels that give age and safety recommendations and use that information as a guide. Select toys to suit the age, abilities, skills and interest level of the intended child.

Look for sturdy construction, such as tightly-secured eyes, noses and other potential small parts.

For all children under 8, avoid toys that have sharp edges and points.

Magnets – For children under age six, avoid building sets with small magnets. If swallowed, serious injuries and/or death can occur.

Small Parts – For children younger than age three, avoid toys with small parts, which can cause choking.

Ride-on Toys – Riding toys, skateboards and in-line skates go fast and falls could be deadly. Helmets and safety gear should be sized to fit.

Projectile Toys – Projectile toys such as air rockets, darts and sling shots are for older children. Improper use of these toys can result in serious eye injuries. Try and limit your selection to one with blunt foam tips.

Immediately discard plastic wrappings on toys before they become dangerous play things.

To Learning Through Play

We believe that play is an integral part of a healthy childhood. Through play children gain necessary skills for a happy, productive adulthood. Social skills, creative thinking, spatial reasoning, and learning through role playing are just a few of the benefits of play. By putting the right toys in the hands of children we are helping shape positive, productive members of our society.
