My Family is what you would call a ‘Recycling Family’. We Recycle everything…cans, milk jugs, batteries, cereal boxes…ect. In addition to that I Recycle old tee shirts into Cloth Diapers, broken picture frames into Jewelry holders, used wrapping paper tubes in to small gift boxes.
When I go shopping I love when I see “100% Recycled” but I have found that that usually pertains to the box, not what is inside the box. Which brings us to this wonderful Green Toys Recycling Truck Giveaway!
What I Received…
This is the cutest little Recycling Truck…and…ALL Green Toy’s Products and their packaging are 100% RECYCLED. BPA free, Dishwasher safe, NO lead paint!
From Green Toys:
Sort bottles, cans, and paper or just have a blast! Your eco-conscious little one will learn recycling basics while playing with this super cool recycling truck that has a movable recycling bed and open/shut rear door. The awesome eco-design has no metal axles.
Dimensions: 12”L x 6 ¼”W x 7”H
For ages 1 and up.
What I thought, or Rather what Elias thought….
My boys thought this truck was the coolest. It rolls really fast, which they loved! It has little side compartments where you can recycle little cardboard squares ( you cut out from the box – they have pictures of a bottle, a can, a newspaper) the back of the truck opens to reveal a very large area to put all kinds of ‘recycling’ in!
When they have it all full they can back the truck up to there ‘Recycling Yard’ and dump it! 5 yo Elias was giggling the whole time he was playing with it. He was so excited to get his chance to play with it while the twins napped!
When I asked him what he thought he told me ” This is the coolest truck I have ever played with” then proceeded to get the little booklet that came with the truck, it shows all the Green Toys they carry, and show all the other Green Toys we NEED! “We need A Tea set for Gabbi, and a Dump Truck for Simon, and of course a Fire Truck for me!!”.
I would be lying if I told you that we won’t be getting those other items…at some point in the new year we will be making a Green Toys order!
My Closing thoughts…
I think that my most favorite part about Green Toys is that they have gone ALL out! They didn’t just use Recycle Plastic for all there toys they made sure it was safe, BPA free, No Lead, and Dishwasher safe, that show that they are a company who truly cares about out Environment! It is just a added bonus that the packaging is recycled too!
Visit Green Toys and fall in love with them like I did the first time I saw them in BOHO magazine!
