Raising kids to be design-minded and eco-conscious isn’t always easy, but Fast Company has put together some products that kids will love just as much as adults.

Skip Hop’s Wishbone bike is eco-friendly and practical–this recycled-plastic and sustainable-wood 3-in-1 bike goes from three-wheels to two with a quick switch, and also adjusts its height for a growing kid.

Kids love building forts. Kids love cardboard boxes. Voila–a cardboard Teepee from Ecocentric.

Part of Plan Toys’ eco line, this dollhouse is equipped with a wind turbine, solar panels on the roof, a shade canopy, recycling bins, and a complete furniture set for your eco-conscious dolls to live in.


The Metal Speedcar Racer from Design Within Reach is modeled after a classic speedster.
