Wanting to get your little one a gift in honor of Earth Day, we've got the perfect green gift for you.
Green ToysTM was nice enough to send us a sample of one of their 2009 new arrivals. They sent us the Green Toys Dump Truck.
After I managed to work out an equitable sharing plan for the boys, they were happily taking turns playing with their favorite new toy. They were running it all over our family room once they stopped fighting over it. This is one strong toy to stand up to two active boys who were pulling it in two different directions, leaning on it, and crashing it into pretty much every chair they could find. The truck's big bed also was filled to the top with all kinds of cars, Little People, and miscellanous toys.
The truck is made of 100% recycled milk cartons and made in the USA. It has working dump bed and no metal anxles. It is a high-qualty, well constructed toy that is made to last. It also has a great texture. They come packed in recyclable corrugated boxes with none of those pesky ties and plastic casing that makes holidays and birthdays pure torture for parents.
My boys also have the Cookware and Dining Set and love that too.
Other toys include:
