Toy Fair Finds: Green Toys

Posted by aMuse Toys on February 16, 2012 0 Comments

We love Green Toys and always look forward to catching up with them at Toy Fair. Their new offerings include a variety of perfectly crafted little vehicles made from their signature material (recycled plastic from milk jugs).

 

Hard to believe [not really] but we had a hard time picking just one favorite. The new Green Toys Salad set and Build-A-Bouquet kit make great additions to their award winning line up. The tool set also got a makeover, its now sports a darker color pallet. 

Made in the USA and eco-friendly these new Green Toys products are definitely aMuse Toy Fair 2012 Top Picks. 

You can expect to see the Minis and Salad at both store locations and amusetoys.com by mid-march and the Build-A-Bouquete in early June. Preorder via email at mail@amusetoys.com

Keep up with new arrivals via Facebook and Twitter

 Irvine Nature Center BugWe have teamed up with (cool) progeny parenting blog and the Irvine Nature Center for a Family Play Day at the Irvine Nature Center on Saturday September 17th. It's an exclusive viewing of the Nature Center's brand new outdoor learning classroom complete with fun activities.

Irvine Nature Center Plants

The Irvine Nature Center is an environmental education organization whose mission is to educate and inspire current and future generations to explore, respect and protect nature.

Irvine Nature Center Animal Tracks

Children learn to love nature while being outdoors and interacting with the center's knowledgable staff and engaging exhibitions.

We will be providing an eco-friendly craft called makedo. It  is a connector system that enables materials including cardboard, plastic and fabric to easily join together to form new objects or structures.

makedo provides you with the reusable tools to take things you’d usually throw away, and turn them into brilliant works of fun and functional art. Participants will work together to recreate plants and animals we find in nature from recycled materials.
