trucks and tools for girls {Green Toys}

girly dump truckWhy should boys have all the fun dumping dirt and “fixing” (read: smashing things) with their tools?  Girls can get in on the fun too, and with Green Toy’s line of girly trucks and tools, even grandma will be tempted to pick up some tradition boy toys for the little ladies.  Green Toys doesn’t discriminate based on gender – they offer lots of fun toys in pink and purple to appeal to the girly girls.  From a dump truck to tools and a race car – they have a great selection of pink toys that would be great for holiday gifting.

We’ve featured the amazing Green Toys brand before.  They are a fantastic eco-friendly company that makes plastic bottles into sturdy toys for tots.   Green Toys are made 100% from recycled milk jugs.  These plastic toys do not contain any BPA, phthalates or PVCs and are made in the USA (local production = less green house gasses from transportation), and can be recycled again when it’s time to purge from the toy bin.

Here’s the low-down on a few of their great girly green toys.

The Green Toys Pink Dump Truck is a great outdoor, sandbox or beach toy.  It’s extremely sturdy and can withstand tough play (I saw it happen first hand – this truck took a lickin’ and looks no worse for the wear).  It’s also super easy to clean – just rinse in water and air dry.  My little lady liked pushing the truck around, but her older cousin took to filling the workable dumper with all sorts of stuff and then dumping it while making appropriate dumping noises (this produced oodles of giggles from both kids).  We went to a birthday party at a local indoor place space last weekend and my girl recognized the truck (they had the whole Green Toys line – tea pots, trucks, etc.) and went straight for it as soon as she spotted it.  It’s really a fan favorite in our house these days.

The Pink Tool Set is super cute too.  Though that’s probably not how most would describe a tool set, this groovy pink and purple 15 piece set includes a tool box, phillips screwdriver, flat screwdriver, hammer, saw, wrench, pliers, 2 two-hole connectors, 2 nails, 2 bolts, and 2 nuts.  The pieces are labeled, making this toy educational too.  Knowing which screwdriver is a phillips is a real life skill!  The carrying case has holes around the sides, perfect for pretend play with the nails and bolts.  This tool set is sure to get girls in on the fix-it fun.

Green Toys are not only well made, but they’re also well priced.  These toys retail for under $30, and you can find them for even less online (Amazon has pretty good prices right now and free shipping so order soon for guaranteed holiday delivery).  I’ll be giving a brother and sister matching trucks this xmas (the red/ yellow combo for the brother and pink/ purple combo for the girl) so no one has to fight over toys.  Either of these toys would also make great sibling gifts for when a newborn baby arrives.
