Easter Gift Guide - Green Toys Submarine

Take the helm of The Green Toys® Submarine for a nautical journey to help protect the planet! Submerge it underwater to explore the terrain at the bottom of the tub, and let it resurface to scan the horizon in search of the next earth-friendly adventure. Made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, this sturdy watercraft features a spinning rear propeller, a flat bottom for added stability, and the classic handle and wide-mouth opening combination for plenty of scoop-and-pour fun. The cabin can be opened for easy cleaning, while the whole vessel is also dishwasher safe. No BPA, phthalates, PVC or external coatings, and also meets FDA food contact standards. Packaged with recycled and recyclable materials and printed with soy inks.

My Thoughts

I am always looking for safe toys for my children.  Its important to know exactly what your toys are made us, and that there is no lead paint or other things that can cause brain damage or make children sick. At Green Toys, I found...well, I found Green Toys that are cute, fun and safe for kids of all ages. Plus they are environmentally friendly because they are made from recycled plastics. Even the package they come in made from recycled paper and soy based ink.

 The submarine is the perfect toy for the upcoming spring and summer seasons because you can play with it both indoors and out. Like all green toys, the submarine is very well made. There are no small pieces that break off, so its safe for children as young as six months. Yet, even bigger kids will love this fun toy. Its great to play with in the bathtub or to bring  along to the beach or the pool. You can  make it float along the top of the water or submerge it completely.  There are no batteries required and its even easy to clean. Dirt rinses right off and you can toss it in the dishwasher if you need to. The best part is that its made from recycled material, which makes it a great choice for the environment as well as your kids. My son just loved it!

 The submarine is only one example of the wonderful toys you can find at Green Toys. They also have dump trucks, fire trunks, tea sets, indoor gardening sets, jump robes, and more.
