Green Toys: A Review and Giveaway

What do Green Toys and tea have in common?  A great gift, a fun toy, and a tea party.

Besides all of the fun pretend tea parties we have been having . . .

unwrapping the contents of this box made me truly appreciate green products.

Say goodbye to wire twist ties and copious amounts of tape securing your child’s toy for the next atomic bomb.

Wanna know more about Green Toys?  According to the EcoMom website,

Like all Green Toys products, this tea set is made from advanced environmentally friendly materials, helping to reduce fossil fuel use and carbon dioxide emissions, all in the name of Good Green Fun.

The tea set that EcoMom sent to us to included 17 pieces: pink tea pot with lid, purple sugar bowl with lid, blue creamer, 4 blue cups, 4 green saucers, 4 yellow teaspoons. On top of all that, the entire product (including packaging) are 100% recycled and recyclable.

Guess what the tea set is made from?  Recycled milk jugs!!!!

Though the age for this product is 3 and up, Smiley (2) has been enjoying adding a lot of honey to his tea pot.

And big brothers, Sir Honey and Mr. Smackdown, often host tea parties.  What I like about these parties is that I don’t have to fret about my tea pots breaking!  And there is never any spilled milk!  (Remember – we are pretending!)
