2011 Holiday Gift Guide Day 11 - Green Toys

What if there was a site that offered toys that were not only 100% made in the United States,  but also made out of recycled milk jugs. Well guess what there is and they by the name of "Green Toys".  It's hard to believe that such quality toys could come from recycled milk carton's but it's true.  In fact,  it's the main ingredient that they use to make thier toys.    Because they they are made from recycled milk cartons,  it saves energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.  Besides not only does Green Toys focus on green toys they also focus on enviromentally safe packaging,  as they come packaged in 100% recyclable packaging. 

Green Toys very kindly provided me with two exciting toys to review with my boys and one to review with my nieces.  Their current selection of toys includes 26 classic toys that any child would be sure to love including Blocks,  Sand Play Sets.  Chef Set,  and many other fun and entertaining toys. 

The first toy we reviewed was the Green Toys™ Flatbed Truck & Race Car .  Before I ever received it I knew my kids would love it because what little boy doesnt love race cars!  From my one year old to my seven year old,  they all enjoyed it.   It provided them with hours of imaginative play.  This set includes a blueFlatbed truck with a bright red race car.  The flatbed can actually be tilted up to allow the race car to roll off. 

Secondly my children tried out the Green Toys™ Dump Truck for boys.  This toy is perfect for playing in the dirt or sand box,  which makes it the perfect toy to take to the park for lots of fun outdoor play.  Besides using it as toy I think it has a lot of potential for party use too.  For instance this toy would make  a perfect use for a dumptruck cake or could be used as decoration to store party favors in.  Whatever way you use it I am sure your children will enjoy it just as much as mine has!

Last,  but not least on the list is the Green Toys™ Pink Dump Truck for girls. I recieved this item to review with my nieces,  which was a nice change since most the items I review with my boys,  so it was nice to be able to receive a pink colored toy.  It may be colored pretty and pink but your little girl can still get down and dirty in this fun dump truck for girls. No matter if she fills it up with dolls or rocks,  she is sure to have a lot of fun with this enjoyable toy.

BUY IT: You can purchase a Green Toys™ Flatbed Truck & Race Car for $32.99.
