Have you ever heard of toys made with recycled sawdust?
I hadn't either! Well, that is until I stumbled across these AWESOME toys from Sprig Toys.
Sprig Toys was incredible enough to send Noah and I their Front Loader Eco Truck. Noah has, over the last few months, really found a passion for cars and trucks, so this fit right in line.
My first impression was that of impressed. The shipping box that they used had been reused - it was not a new box! Yeah for up-cycling!
The packaging material for the actual toy was made out of recycled paper and cardboard, and even the ties that secured the toy to the packaging was NOT plastic!
Then....the toy. Outside of the great fun that Noah is STILL having with the truck, I was more impressed with its design and eco-friendly functionality. Sprig Toys are made of Sprigwood.... a child-safe, bio-composite material made from recycled wood and reclaimed plastic. I'm LOVING this!
Sprig Eco-Trucks are loads of fun. Can you dig it?
Digging, loading and dumping. That’s a tried-and-true formula for dirt pile and sandbox fun that we simply won’t mess with. Sprig Eco-Trucks are fully equipped with flip-open cabs and easy-grab handles, making each freewheeling vehicle inviting and a cinch to maneuver.
The scooping action and rotating chassis of the Excavator turns serious digging into child’s play. The Loader does the trio’s heavy lifting, and the Dump Truck gets the job done with its tilting cab, locking bed and swing-out tailgate.
The playful, cartoon-like designs of our chunky vehicles make them irresistible to preschoolers, and parents love the eco-friendly, battery-free, kid-powered construction. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
In addition to the great toys that Sprig Toys develops, they have a great website full of color and coloring pages! Great for you and your child!!
