ABE Sponsor: Green your toybox with Green Toys!

Do plastics weird you out? They sure do make me feel icky. I think you start looking at them differently once you have a child taste-testing everything in the house. For a while, I said NO plastic. But then, with a little research, I learned that there are options out there for moms like me who want cute, fun stuff but still say NO WAY to BPA!

When I found Green Toys, I thought they might be too good to be true. But then I contacted the company, and asked a few questions. Then I checked some of the great eco-conscious websites I follow, and most of them endorsed Green Toys. I was sold!

Here are just a few of the fun, classically styled toys made by Green Toys.

Check out this chunky pink and lavender dumptruck. She’s cute, sturdy, and she means business!

I don’t think we could live without the tool set. We tried felt tools, but what little boy wants to play with a floppy screwdriver? :? My son loves that he can use these to be just like his Pop Pop, and I love that they have the names of the tools spelled out in big clear letters on each piece. (The set comes in pink, too! Not that I’m implying that there should be any gender assumption there, but it’s nice to have choices, right?)

From play food and garden sets to tableware and even a recycling truck, Green Toys has something to make every kid smile! (Mom, too! :D )

Here are some key things you need to know about these eco-friendly toys:

  • Made in USA (which also means less transportation, less energy wasted, and a smaller carbon footprint.)
  • All toys are made from 100% recycled milk jugs, which results in a plastic called high-density polyethylene (or HDPE), one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.
  • All Green Toys products are minimally packaged in easy-to-open corrugated boxes that are recycled and recyclable.
  • All Green Toys are tested by independent, third party labs in the USA, and they contain no traceable amounts of phthalates or BPA…and no paint! That means no possible lead. Ever.
