Inspired by the desire to shop locally, buy green, and find some darn cute toys, I stumbled upon Green Toys! Don’t be fooled by the rather unimaginative name…the toys are super cute and creative. This company manufactures all of its toys, which are made from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs and other environmentally friendly materials, in the United States. They are all BPA, PVC, and Phthalate free. So, no worries when these toys end up in your little one’s mouth!
I first met Green Toys when a dump truck introduced himself to me in the toy aisle at Homegoods. Yes, toys have a tendency to speak to me! My rule of thumb…if a toy is rude enough to ignore me, it can stay on the shelf! This little red and yellow dump truck wanted a home. And, although I’m okay with Ayla having “boy” toys, when I saw that the same dump truck came in pink and purple… it was love at first sight (sorry, little red and yellow). Soon after I purchased the girly dump truck I hopped on Green Toys’ website in search of more treasures. This time I zoomed away with an adorable pink race car.
Next on my list to buy is the vintage cooktop! It comes in either pink or a pale aqua. So cute for a playroom, and it won’t take up much space. I know that I highlighted the girly toys, but Green Toys has tractors, train sets, ferry boats and more. Check it out and see what you think.
