This past Christmas my Mother bought Matthew a dump truck and a recyle truck from Green Toys.
Matthew loves to play with trucks so my mom bought him two trucks made from recycled milk jugs! The trucks are pretty lightweight and almost feel just like a real thick milk jug. They are made in the U.S.A. and even their packaging is made from recycled corrugated cardboard and is recycleable.
The boys both play with these trucks all of the time. They like to fill up the dumptruck and then run it around the house and then dump out the contents. They like to run the recycle truck around the house and keep asking me for things to recycle and then put it in the truck. They can either open up the back of the truck and put the recycleables in that way or slip the recycleables into the slits on the sides of the truck. If I don’t have anything small to recycle they will take crayons or small pieces of paper and spread them out over the floor and go and pick them up with the recycle truck and pretend that they are recycling.
I like that the recycled plastic contains no BPA and has been thoroughly tested. I feel good when my boys play with these toys and are getting very into recycling. They now get so excited when we have something to recycle and they get to go put it in the recycle bin.
I am very grateful for companies like Green Toys who are helping the planet and are making safe toys for children to play with.
