Summer Splash Sponsor Spotlight for Green Toys

May 13, 2013

Summer Splash is coming up! I am very excited to bring you an awesome package to get your family outside, together this summer! This feature is all about our sponsor Green Toys! Green Toys provided a sample for me to share our family’s experience with you!

Green Toys Inc. makes an awesome line of classic children’s toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. This helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improving the overall health and happiness of the planet.

Their toys are not only made from 100% recycled materials (mostly milk containers). They are also packaged in 100% recycled cardboard and are made in the USA.

green2We got some toys to play with and tell you about! They sent us an EcoSaucer and Jump Rope! The girls had a blast “testing” them out at the Great Cloth Diaper Change:

We love toys that keep us active. There are a lot of times when we are all (mom and dad included) too plugged in! Someone is always on a cell, computer, Kindle or watching TV! This summer we are definitely taking some time to get outside and PLAY! It gets pretty hot around here so it is easy to get stuck inside, especially when it is 110 degrees outside, or higher. We are planning to take some day trips to the lake and get out of the heat using the items in this giveaway event.

The EcoSaucer is thicker than most “flying disks” that you are used to. This makes it more durable. I have several that my dog has chewed up into bits. There is no way that is happening here! This EcoSaucer is very durable. I would trust it enough to leave it in the backyard with the dog. It performs very well and The Toddler was even able to catch it a couple of times. I had some trouble gripping it the way I have become used to, which I think is due to the fact that it is thicker. A fun toy that can be enjoyed by many at the same time!

The Jump Rope was also a lot of fun. Of course the Toddler isn’t quite old enough to use it on her own but She had fun trying to learn from her big sister. The Jump Rope is very well made. The rope is soft and very pliable. It is not a regular nylon rope. Because it is so much softer I am inclined to think that it will wear down quickly. So far, after many uses it isn’t showing as much wear as I thought it would!

The Green Toys we received are awesome! I highly recommend them to any parent, caregiver or gift giver! This is such a great way to get kids moving and help save our garbage from ruining the planet!

    Love Green Toys! They are my new favorite brand. Made in the USA from recycled mild jugs, ingenius! I have the sand bucket for my son’s 3rd birthday and recently bought a set of dishes and love them both. High quality! We’d enjoy more toys from green toys!

    I feel like flying discs these days are so flimsy. My husband and my boys are rough on sporting equipment and toys so I’m glad to know it’s durable. I would definitely consider getting this when we need to replace the one we have
