My brother got some really cool toys made of recycled milk jugs for his birthday. They are by Sprig Toys, a line of eco toys that are kid-friendly. His favorite one is definitely the Discover Rig a fun, four-wheeling truck that can seat up to three Adventure Guide characters (which max likes to call his “boys”). Max’s own push-action makes the lights and sounds go off – I guess you’d call them kid powered.
Max also got Dune Bug’s Sand Truck, a small dump truck that he’s going to take the beach because it comes with a detachable shovel and sand mold and can go in the water. My mom loves what she calls their “chunky wheels and kid-powered construction.”
My mom looked it up for me and all of the toys are made from bio-composite material made from recycled wood and reclaimed plastic.
All of the packaging was completely recyclable with no twisty ties and you could even cut off some of the pieces to add to the play like my mom did.
Check them out, it is about time some ostarted making some really cool green kids toys. I highly recommend you find some Sprig for the kids in your life.
