Green Toys Review & Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED***


Have you ever worried about the safety of your children's toys? I know I have. Especially after toys started getting recalled due to lead. Many of these recalled toys are the ones you found right on the shelf at your local toy store. So what do you buy if you want toys that are made in America, safety tested, and are Eco Friendly?


You can start right at Green Toys! This company creates fun, classic children's toys that are made from recycled plastics and other environmentally friendly materials. Doing this helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which improves the overall health of the planet! How many of the toys in your house do that?? Pretty great, right?

The main ingredient used to make these adorable toys is milk containers. So all of those many gallons of milk we go through every month & then recycle can be turned into toys made of safe, clean plastics! All of the Green Toys products are made in the US, right in California! Even the packaging is environmentally friendly...it's 100% recyclable and doesn't include any unnecessary extras. It's also very easy to open...something I definitely appreciate as a Mom!
Green toys are also tested for safety and contain no traceable amounts of BPA or Phthalates. And they do not contain any external coatings, which eliminates the fear of lead paint!
So now that you know how safe & environmentally friendly Green Toys are...I am sure you are wondering if the toys are actually fun for kids, right? Well I will certainly tell you that my two year old daughter just loved her Cookware & Dining Set. This set contained 4 of each item (like plates, cups, bowls, silverware), plus a pot & frying pan and helped her create a perfect little tea party. And I felt completely comfortable when she brought that little teacup up to her mouth...I knew it wouldn't have lead or any other harmful chemicals. We were both happy! She loves to pretend to cook just like Mommy and we have really enjoyed this set!

Green toys offers many other toys such as:
  • Recycling Truck
  • Dump Truck
  • Tool Set
  • Sand Play Set
  • Ecosaucer
  • Indoor Gardening Kit
  • Tea Set
  • Dish Set
  • Chef Set
  • Jump Rope
All of these toys really help bring out your child's imagination...the simplicity of them allows them to create their own ideas & play any way they wish. So many of the toys out there now have all of the music, lights, etc. So it is nice to just get back to basics and watch them play and do what comes naturally!

PURCHASE: Green toys can be purchased at many online locations, and you find a store in your area by clicking here.
GIVEAWAY: Green Toys would like to offer one reader a Jump Rope! The jump rope is made of US made 100% Cotton & 100% Recycled Plastic handles! Available in pink, purple, or green!

I love the green tea set and the donuts. I own both of these from green toys and my kids love them. Everything from this store is very colorful and durable, as well as "greenly" wrapped! I've been very impressed with everything I've purchased there and would be delighted to own another product from Green Toys!
