Just in case you did not know this Wednesday is Earth Day. Click here for a brief history of Earth Day. To celebrate I am having a week of Eco Friendly reviews with a few giveaways thrown in for fun...so make sure you check back.
So here we go....
A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to find on my door step the absolute cutest Eco Friendly toy from Sprig Toys that I have ever seen....Their Sprig Hollow collection. I was so excited for my son to play with it and he excited to see it!!!
From their press release:
Sprig Hollow, the latest Eco-toy line from Sprig, encourages preschoolers to scoop, pour, fill, plant and most importantly, get outside and play with Mom and Dad. The new collection of multi-piece play sets includes Bee & Butterfly’s Farm, Dune Bug’s Farm Truck and Dragonfly’s Heli-Scoopter. Each colorful set includes seed-infused, recycled paper flowers that provide an easy parent-kid project: simply plant the paper flowers in soil, water and watch them grow into real wildflowers. All Sprig Hollow components are made from natural rubber and Sprigwood, a child-safe bio-composite of recycled wood and reclaimed plastic that has visible wood “flecks” and gives the toys a fresh, wood-shop scent.
My son grabbed this and headed for the bath tub, there was still snow on the ground when they arrived. He had a blast with them! Had to coax himout of the bathtub by saying he couls sleep woth one of them.....cute I know. He is so excited to take them out to our extra large sandbox that Dad built this spring. He is also very anxious to plant our flower and to see what blooms.
Here is the history of Sprig from their web site:
Once upon a time, there were three talented toy designers who were taking the industry by storm. Their award-winning toys were selling like hotcakes. They were happy and successful. Then one day the designers visited the factories that turned their computer renderings into real toys. They eagerly watched the assembly line with anticipation, and quickly realized the harmful impact their toy production had on the nearby air, soil, water, plants and people. They were devastated.
They went back to the drawing board, only to face another disturbing toy trend that threatened to control their designs. Passive “watch-me” electronic toys were gaining popularity, encouraging otherwise healthy kids to become more inactive. The designers refused to be part of the problem, so they joined forces to become the solution.
Our brave, young designers made a pact. They vowed then and there to make the best toys the right way. They were on a mission to keep kids active and the planet healthy, and the quest became personal when they started to have children of their own.
In 2007, they formed Sprig Toys, Inc., turning their vision into reality. The designers packed their families and moved from opposite coasts to reunite the threesome in the heart of the Rocky Mountain west. It was in Fort Collins, Colorado, where Team Sprig created their top-secret, high-tech toy laboratory – and where they designed an exciting line of battery-free, Eco-friendly, paint-free, kid-powered toys sure to dazzle the most discriminating preschooler.
