Turn pretend play, planet friendly! One of my favorite online shops KangarooBoo is now selling Green Toys, a line of toy sets made of recycled plastic (like milk jugs). There are 4 cute sets, an Indoor Gardening Set, Cookware and Dining Set, a Tea Set (shipping in April), and a Sand Bucket set. All sets come in cute pastel colors without any surface paint (no lead worries!) The toys have all been voluntarily tested and are free of BPA, Phthalates, and have passed all voluntary testing for cadmium and those other nasties. They’ve been approved by the FDA for food contact and are made in the USA which helps reduce the fossil fuel needed to ship overseas! Even the packaging is made with recycled materials. I think these are great gift ideas and I have a set of twins to shop for next month … that tea set is perfect. KangarooBoo has a bevy of other great safe toys too, and they carry the Boon line of dishware. As always, a portion of their sales go towards children’s charities. It’s a win win!
