Green Toys Review And Giveaway

Green Toys Inc. Home Page
 
 
Have you ever wondered exactly what went into the making of the toys your child is playing with?   I have wondered about that frequently, especially since it is a well known fact that many toys are made with toxic paints, plastics, and metals.  Your child then touches them all day and sticks their hands into their mouths.
 
So I started to search out safe toys for my four children. Toys made of non-toxic materials is essential to me.  That's when I became aware of Green ToysGreen Toys is a company that creates toys that are not only safe for your little ones, but made every step of the way from the raw materiel's to the packaging right here in the USA!
 
Here is What Sold Me on Green Toys
 
  • Tested by nationally recognized, independent, third-party labs (located, yes, in the USA.) They contain no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint.

  • All Green Toys products are packaged in recycled corrugated boxes with no plastics, cellophane or twist-ties, and are 100% recyclable. 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.

  • All their toys use recycled milk containers as the main ingredient for manufacturing

  • Cost is very reasonable and when compared to a similar product at Walmart they are pretty much the same!
 
I was sent the Green Toys Train for the purpose of this review. My five year old son especially like to play with inside the house and out. He makes up all sorts of imaginative story's about what is happening to the train.  For the child that likes them, his is a perfect train.
 
It is very well made and I liked the attractive packaging.  This train is extremely tough. It can take allot of abuse from an active toddler and also is easy to put together so even a two year old can link the cars together.  I also liked that I didn't have to fight through the thousands of ties and tapes that most toy companies seem to think that they must put into their packaging.  Green toys does that on purpose to eliminate waste.
 

 
 
There are so many other toys that Green Toys sells that I would love for my kids, from Kitchen Toys to really neat Outdoor Toys for this coming spring.  I also would want some more of their tub toys.  They have a really cool Ferry Boat that I know my little Viking Boy would adore.
I would recommend Green Toys to anyone looking for safe, affordable, and sustainably made toys for the special children in their life.

  1. Not sure what you wanted for comments. My son loves trains, but being a rough and tumble toddler, his toys have to stand up to standard (ab)use. We have nifty thrifty finds and he has scored some as gifts. I do like the look of their upcoming Construction Trucks line.

  13. My son would love the train! He already has the plane and tug boat. Love the texture, color, and look of these toys! So far they have held up to all the punishment a three year old and ten year can dish out. Yeah, my ten year old loves these toys as much as my three year old. I know my three year old would love the train-- he is a big 'toot-toot' fan.
