This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered!!
When I was at Toys R US last month I browsed their small Eco-friendly section. I was shocked when I saw Sprig Toys. I had seen them on the internet, but never had the chance to see what they were all about. As I looked them over at Toys R Us, I was pretty impressed by the quality. Then a few weeks later Sprig contacted me about a review and I was stoked. I love trying new things!
Sprig Toys is an Eco-friendly company dedicated to making the best toys the right way. Three of the Sprig designers were once creating toys that were selling “like hotcakes.” They were happy and successful until one day they visited the factories that turned their computer renderings into the real thing. They realized the harmful impact their toy production had on nearby air, soil, water, plants and people. They then weren’t so happy. The 3 toy makers then made a pact to only create battery-free, eco-friendly, paint-free, kid-powered toys. And now we have Sprig Toys to enjoy!
Sprig Toys are molded using Sprigwood- a durable, bio-composite made from recycled wood and reclaimed plastic. In the compound, there are no heavy metals, BPA, phthalates, urea or formaldehyde. Though, I just learned that all wood has a natural level of formaldehyde as part of its makeup due to it being in the air, soil and water- and even in outer space! But Sprig Toys does not add any additives to their compound that is considered hazardous on any list.
Sprig Toys sent us 2 amazing products to review. Ella’s favorite is the Princess Penny’s Story Building Palace. The set comes with 95 pieces that you can build your own castle with. I love that the pieces are cardboard that you get to piece together using mini blocks with slits for the boards to fit. And it comes with a Princess Penny who is adorable! I love the simple design. Ella had a blast putting the castle together. I wasn’t sure she would be able to do it herself, but once I showed her how.. she was right at it. She loved the horse and carriage! This set has kept her busy for hours! I took it over to the old townhouse so Ella could play while I worked. 🙂You can get the Princess Penny’s Story Building Palace for $29.99 at Sprig Toys.
The other awesome toy we received is the Adventure Series Dolphin Explorer Boat. Ella has loved playing with the boat in the bath tub! It comes with 2 dolphins, 2 boats, 1 life preserver, and Captain Owen- with a backpack and hat. I love the mommy and baby dolphins! Ella has the jump in and out of the water which is adorable to watch. This would be a great toy to take to the pool or beach and even with outside water tables. You can get the Dolphin Explorer at Sprig Toys for $29.99.
