Green Toys

It's so hard to find toys that are safe for your kids (lead free) and will also be something they would want to play with. Sorry, as much as I try to get my kids to like wooden toys...the wooden dolls with no posable arms and no super capes just aren't going to cut it. Also as a mom to boys I can not tell you how hard it is to find dishes and tea sets without Dora or princess heads on them. No one makes a "boy" set that is also affordable.
Well that is until Green Toys came on the market. Not only do they have a gender neutral dish set they are also made out of 100% recycled milk jugs. They are free of Phthalates or BPA and to top it off they use recycled cardboard in their packaging. No twist ties or cellophane. And the best part of this company...They are made in the USA. It just doesn't get any better. Keep them bookmarked for Christmas. They are available on Amazon.com

Wow, this is really great.
I really like the plain with no design on them.
Boys can play like they are cooking just as much as girls can.

Have you ever looked at Melissa and Doug (Doug and Melissa?) toys? They have some nice wooden food sets that we use in our classroom.
