Green Toys Sea Plane (Review & Giveaway)

In our house, we try to be as eco-friendly as possible. We sure do get a lot of boxes, when the mail comes- so we wind up with a lot of paper, cardboard, and even plastic that we set adise for recycling day. We taught Balian about recycling right off, and now he proudly knows the difference between the trash, and the 'recyling trash.' With all of the packages and paper to come in the next week or so, recycling has definitely been on my mind. Though we recycle at home, we can do our part for the environment, even futher, by purchasing environmentally friendly toys for our son.

Green Toys

As a mom, I only want the best for my son, but I'm not always thinking about how some of the things he holds in his hands were even made. With Green Toys, I know that what he's playing with is safe. Most Green Toys are made with the main ingredient being plastic milk jugs, which are then recycled... and used to make awesome toys!

We were able to select one of the newest Green Toys available for review. I chose the Sea Plane for Balian, because he is fascinated by planes, and loves toys that can be used in and out of the bath tub!

Our Green Toys Sea Plane...

As soon as Balian saw the Sea Plane from Green Toys, he was ready to dig into the package, which was made of 100% recycled paper. The large working propeller caught B's eye, and he couldn't wait to give it a test spin!

'Come on, mommy- let's play plane!'

As we opened up the Sea Plane, I explained to Balian that the box was made from recycled paper, and he immediately picked it up, and carried it to our indoor recycling bin. I was so proud- my little recycler! After that, it was right back to the plane for some play time! The sea plane is a great size, and it's easy for both big and little hands to grasp. Balian had a ball spinning the propeller, and making the plane fly. We even tried the sea plane out in the bath tub, the next evening. It floats magnificently, and offers a whole new world of fun and imaginative play for my little pilot!

'Can you hear the plane, mommy?'

Green Toys is a wonderful choice for anyone who wants to teach their children the importance of taking care of our precious Earth, or for anyone who just wants to make an environmentally-conscious toy purchase. I love that these toys are made right here in the USA, and that I can feel good about my son playing with them. It's nice to know that all of those milk jugs that we go through each week (at least four!), are finding new life again through Green Toys. And hey- if our sea plane is ever spent, we can recycle it, so it can be transformed into something useful, yet again!

Green Toys are wonderful for anytime, and they'd make a great gift this holiday season, too! Your little ones will love the bright colors, and all around fun they'll have playing with these toys! There are lots of toys for boys and girls of all ages! I can't wait to  get some of the little gardening toys for Balian once spring rolls around- my little helper will love them, and so will yours!
