Are You Looking for Green Toys That Are Made In America?

Are you looking for toys made in America? Are you tired of wondering what is in that toy that I just gave my child? I know it was made in China and I remember the massive recall of toys from Mattel back in 2007.

Do I really think that much has changed - that our government really has their eyes on the ball. Or do I think that our government and China will overlook many things just to keep the money and economy rolling and not worry about the safety of our children like I would.

One of the things we can all do in our daily lives is make change. We can change the food we eat, the soap we wash with, and the toys that our children play with.

We can also buy American - yes, we still have companies in America that can display the Made in the USA sign.

One of those companies is called Green Toys and they make a classic line of toys. They have a Dump Truck, Pink Dump Truck, Fire Engine, School Bus, Tool Set, Tea Set, Dish Set, Blocks,Sand Play Set, Stacking Cups, Teethers and many more items.

All of their toys are made from recycled milk containers, which is considered one of the safest and cleanest plastics to use, and they are all made in California. California has strict toy safety and environmental laws so you know that they are not only making a safe toy, but they are helping the environment at the same time. One way is by using less energy for transportation, as the toy is made in California and doesn't have to be shipped to us from overseas.

The toys are tested and have passed many tests, such as the Consumer Safety Improvement Act, California Prop 65 restrictions on lead & cadium, FDA regulations for food contact and voluntary testing for no BPA (Bisphenol-A).

They are tested by independent third party labs here in the United States. They show no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA and they are made without external coatings so you don't have to worry about lead paint.

The packaging is minimal and the boxes are recycled corrugated boxes and they don't have those twist ties that you have to fight with to get the toy out of the box. And the box is 100% recyclable, so you can do your part to help the environment.

Green toys are receiving awards and recognition from many different experts and businesses, including Dr. Toy, Oppenheim Awards, Parents' Choice Gold Award and many more. If you are looking for a great, well made classic toy for your child or as a gift consider a green toy.
