So it's day 2 of our Fun in the Sun Summer Blog party! Yesterday was the Julbo USA giveaway so if you missed it make sure you check it out...their glasses are awesome!

In case you've missed it I have a son and my son is such a manly little boy! I swear he walks with a strut and insists on wearing a hat like his dad, and don't even get me started on his toys; his favorite at the moment is his tool set. Since I do try to be more conscious about the environment I am always on the lookout for products for my children that are eco-friendly and when I came across Green Toys I became a huge fan of their toys!

Green Toys makes a great line of classic children's toys constructed of recycled plastic milk jugs and other environmentally friendly materials. The mission of green toys is to provide environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional plastic toys while doing their part to preserve the earth! Green Toys are not only made environmentally friendly they are also made to be so much more safe for our children than traditional plastic toys (no BPA, phthalates, or lead to worry about). Green Toys are also packaged in recycled (and recyclable) corrugated cardboard. Some of the toys in their line include a tea set, indoor gardening kit, recycling truck, sand play set, and jump ropes to name a few.

We received the Green Toys Tool Set for review and I have to admit I was impressed with it before I ever took it our of the package! First of all I have to say that this tool set is hands down the best made plastic tool set I have ever seen! I have been looking for a tool set for my son for months now and the tool sets that I've seen are cheaply made, easily broken, and pale in comparison to Green Toys Tool Set...seriously this set was impeccable! The tools are all constructed of one piece of plastic making breaking them nearly impossible, and they are also solid which makes a huge difference in the longevity of a product, especially a child's toy! The Tool Set is a 15 piece set that includes a tool box, 2 screwdrivers, hammer, saw, pliers, 2 two-hole connectors, wrench, 2 nails, 2 bolts, and 2 nuts!


(Gaige fixing something with his wrench)

  41. Green Toys are so awesome, how can I choose a favorite? My daughter got the cooking set for Christmas and the tea set for her birthday. They are great quality and she loves playing with all the pieces. I just ordered the indoor garden as a potty training bribe (a BIG potty training bribe!) I love the tool set and would love to get one of the two dump trucks also.
