Green Toys- Dump Truck Review and Giveaway!!!


THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. THANKS FOR ENTERING!

What ARE Green Toys? That is what I was wondering when I clicked onto their logo on another site. First, I saw very cute looking plastic toys. As, I continued to read on their site, I found info like this, about WHY they are "Green", and HOW they are "Green":
Got that? Green Toys are made from recycled MILK JUGS!!! How awesome is that? My family goes though a gallon of milk a day, and I never thought they could be made back into something like this:
So, yesterday I received the dump truck in the mail. I opened the box, and inside I saw the dump truck in it's recycled box. When I pulled that box out and opened it, I was OVERJOYED to see the Dump Truck slide right out! FINALLY~ I don't have to spend 5 hours trying to undo all of those metal twisty things that hold all children's toys in their boxes. No. This company uses as little as possible, so there is no waste...
Well, I showed my 1 yo the truck this morning and he instantly made the "truck sound". Bbbrrrrr... And he has been playing with it ever since. I can tell you also, this is a very well made truck. There are no metal axles. And my 4 yo was also loving this truck today, and was running after and pushing the truck all around the house. It has passed the durability test!
There are several very cute toys by this company, and under their "where to buy" section, you can see there are lots of places to get your Green Toys.
So, NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!!!

Green Toys are giving away one of their adorable dump trucks to one of our lucky viewers!

We would love the sand play set. We live very close to the beach, but don't own any sand toys.

I've seen these and wondered how they passed the toddler boy test. I'm glad to see such a good use for all those milk bottles we go through! I know my little nephew would love one.

Felicia said...

Oh, I agree with Mom of Three Little Princesses. My Princess Niece would enjoy the tea set. My Busy Big-Girl Cousin, the jump ropes and her Younger Brother the sand set. Personally, I'd go for the garden set :)

I would give the dump truck to the child care center at the nursing home where I work. Besides being a fun toy, perhaps they could use it to teach the kids about recycling.

I would love to get this for my five year old. After he tested extremely high with lead intoxication, we had to get rid of many of his old toy cars and trucks.

Wendy said...

I would love this for my 2 year old, although I bet there would be a fight between him and the 6 year old over it! Great giveaway. I had no idea you could make toys of out of used milk jugs. How awesome is that?? wendy@wendy.com

Wendy said...

As for the other gift... it would have to be the recycling truck to go with the dump truck! (That way it would avoid the aforementioned fighting.) That would make a cute set!

Anonymous said...

I owuld love to give this toy to my son Samuel. I have become greener and greener since my pregnancy with him and I think this would make the perfect first birthday present for him.
