Finding baby products that are made of quality materials is not always easy. So many of the toys we have to choose from are brightly colored cheap plastic and made who knows where. I am so happy to have found high quality, USA Made Toys from Green Toys. We have a few toys from Green Toys already, and I was excited to receive a recycling truck for little dude in exchange for this review, all opinions are my own.
Green Toys Recycling Truck – Play Green!
Green Toys are 100% made in the USA, they use recycled milk jugs as the main ingredient of their plastic when making toys. For every pound of recycled plastic they save the energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries, enough electricity to power a TV for 3 weeks or to keep a laptop running for a month. When it comes to toys they have everything from plastic keys for the really little ones to pretend dining sets for the older kids as they start to enjoy pretend play.
We already have a dump truck, now to be paired with a recycling truck to make sure things are getting done around here! The recycling truck is a fun way to teach kids about the importance of recycling – to allow for Green Toys to make more toys! There are even cut outs on the back of the box to help teach kids to sort as they recycle bottles, cans, and paper. As little dude gets older, the Pizza Parlor and Tool Set will definitely be added to our toy box.
Green Toys aren’t just “green” – they are award winning toys with awards from Parents Magazine, the Cribsies, Red Tricycle and more. You can find Green Toys at many stores – including Amazon.com, BuyBuyBaby and Diapers.com.
