Green Toys with a Giveaway


Brandon has lots of "green" toys and lots of those are Green Toys!  Green Toys are made from recycled milk jugs and are 100% made in the USA.  From the recycling, to production and assembly are done in California.  How awesome is that!?!  Green Toys products are tested by nationally recognized, independent, third-party labs (located, yes, in the USA.) They contain no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint.

The packaging is also very environmentally friendly.  They minimize packaging, and all of their boxes use as little material as possible. All Green Toys products are packaged in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable. So, not only are they earth-friendly and ready for your recycling bin, they are really easy to open for those little fingers just itching to get at the toys!!




We believe the world would be a much better place if everyone said “please” and “thank you", cell phones didn’t ring during movies, and all toys were fun, safe, and made from environmentally friendly materials. Since it’s probably no use holding our breath for those first two, we’re concentrating on the toys.

Green Toys Inc. makes an awesome line of classic children’s toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. This helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improving the overall health and happiness of the planet.


Brandon and Kristina each recieved a few things from Green Toys and they were pretty excited when they arrived.  I was pretty happy, again, with how easy they were to open up and get into, you know they can't wait long to get playing!  We got a jump rope, which isn't just for skipping either, they use it to play tug of war, to pull each other on cardboard boxes, to tow bikes and more.  The ecosaucer flying disc, which I love because it doesn't end up in the recycle after a few months because its thin and flimsy.  It has some strenght to it and will last for sure, however its still easy for Brandon to throw. 


We also got the sand play set.  This isn't just for Summer either, you can use it for gardening in the greenhouse, digging in the wet Fall dirt and the bucket is great to take on walks for collecting bits and pieces that they find along the way but can't bear to leave behind.  Green toys are very moderately priced.  The jump rope is $10.49 the sand play set is $21.99 and the ecosaucer flying disc is $5.49.  They are a bit higher priced than the cheap ones you find a department stores but they are way better quality.  They make great gifts and I love that you don't need to replace them every year, if not sooner like some others!  I am hoping Brandon gets the brand new school bus for Christmas, hint hint :)
