100% USA-Made Green Toys for Christmas

If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift, consider trying a toy by Green Toys!  An innovative company, their toys are constructed primarily of recycled milk jugs.  If you would like specifics, the material used is called high-density polyethylene (or HDPE), considered one of the safest, cleanest plastics around.

Toy’s made in the USA are few and far between in today’s world.  However, you’re in luck, all Green Toys are made in our own California.  They are packaged in boxes from recycled material.  Green Toys makes a variety of products appealing to both boys and girls.  They make a dump truck, recycle truck, fire truck, tea set, dish set, tug boat, sand play set, blocks, and more!

Jack has a lot of fun playing with his dish set and sand play set.  It is refreshing to know if he puts the dishes or sand shovel in his mouth (and he has!), he is not subjecting his body to harmful chemicals.  Jack recently had an opportunity to try out a Green Toy Recycle Truck, donated by Green Toys.  The truck has a movable bed and a back door that opens and closes.  Jack enjoyed putting things in his truck bed and driving it around.  This toy is great for indoor and outdoor play.  Jack likes to play with the truck in his sand box in the summer.  I love that this toy does not require batteries and instead encourages pretend play and creativity.  Some times Jack pretends he is driving different places, picking up recyclables and other times he just drives it around with his other trucks.  He enjoyed this toy at the age of 2 and I’m sure it has many years left of play and creativity.  Also, a plus, Green Toys, including this truck come with an affordable price tag, around $7-$25.

Have you tried a Green Toy?  If so, how did your child like it?  What is your favorite product by this company?

    We got the tool box for my son last Christmas, and it is STILL his all-time favorite toy. He plays with it every single day, and it looks new. We even lost the wrench on trick-or-treat night (he was a builder for Halloween) and I emailed Green Toys and they sent us a free replacement! Cam’s getting the recycle truck for Christmas, and I’m sure he will love it just as much. 🙂
