When my daughter was about 11 months old, I decided she was ready for a toy that would develop and "fine tune" her stacking, sorting skills. I started to look at the local stores near my home, but there honestly wasn't much to choose from, so I began looking online.
I will begin by saying that we are a family that does our best to live by the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” motto. Not that we regularly recycle our rainwater to water the plants, or have solar panels installed on our roof (although those are things we will work towards) we try to do our part in caring for the earth.
Green Toys is an amazing toy company that I have found makes all their products out of 100% recycled plastic in the USA. These days, it seems like there are so many toy companies out there, churning out their wares in foreign factories with who knows what materials, and no real oversight on keeping up standards for reducing environmental impact. You can imagine, it was quite refreshing to find a company like Green Toys with such awareness and stewardship in the toy industry.
Green Toys was generous enough to "share the love" not just for the planet, but for McKinney Mommas as well, by sending us their Green Toys Stacking Cups to review with my daughter earlier this month.
I love the bright yet uniquely mellow colors of these stacking cups. They are numbered 1-6, so you can help your little one learn math and counting while developing fine motor skills at the same time.
These Stacking Cups by Green Toys are so versatile - and can be stacked, nested, filled and poured. They're also great for outdoor play, indoor play or even bath time (we've tried it all).
Now, I like to think that my little one is smart but we're still working on perfecting the stacking skills, mostly she just likes to knock them all down once her mommy (me) builds a tower with them.
Oh, well, we'll keep trying!
I feel really good about purchasing toys for my kiddo from Green Toys for these reasons:
- No BPA, PVC, phthalates or external coatings
- Made in the USA
- Made out of 100% recycled plastic
- Using recycled plastics, Green Toys saves energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions
