Green Toys Review and Giveaway



Not only do I love the color green but I also love being green. As Kermit the Frog says, "its not easy being green". He sure nailed that concept on the head. Green Toys helps make it easier to be green.


Start Simple: Recycled Plastic Milk Jugs
We use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in creating our toys. Yes, the exact plastic milk jugs that you and your family drink from every day. When you finish your milk and toss the container in the recycling bin, these milk containers are collected at your curb by a local recycling company, who then sorts them from all the other types of plastic. Next, the milk containers are reprocessed into super clean fresh plastic. For you plastic geeks, the plastic material we use is called high-density polyethylene (or HDPE). This material is considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.

All Green Toys products are 100% made in the USA. To be more specific, they are produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws. It's cool to buy USA, but also think about this: transportation is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gasses.

Our toys are truly local creations. Every step in the process, from milk container recycling to toy production to final assembly, occurs in California. Our raw materials and toys aren't shipped from overseas, which saves a lot of energy and reduces greenhouse gasses. It also guarantees your toys won't get seasick before they get to your home.





I chose to review the Green Toys Recycling Truck. The cool thing about this truck starts on the box. Not only is the box made from recycled paper (duh!) but there are cute little recyclables printed on the box that you can cut out and sort in the back of the truck! I like that the truck is completely sturdy and will not break easily while Monster Mister Dexter plays with it. I also, obviously, love that it is Eco-friendly and recyclable. Not that I will be getting rid of it any time soon! Dexter likes that he can fit a lot of things in the back of the truck since the gate opens wide. He can fit his little stuffed Elmo in it and he thinks that is the best!

The Recycling Truck was also named Disney's FamilyFun #3 Toy of the Year!

How would you love the opportunity to win a fantastic Green Toy for your little one just in time for Christmas? Well, thats right, you can win your choice of either the Recycling Truck, Dump Truck or Tea Set. All you need to do is head over to Green Toys and pick out your favorite toy. Then come back here and tell me which toy you like the most AND which toy you would like to win. Make sure I have a way to email you so you can know you won!
