When I think Earth day I remember when I was a kid be talked about saving the earth. Now I feel like earth day is every day about being green and trying to be greener. I recycle, I use green products (mainly because my wife loves them), I shop at green markets (I’ll admit living across the street from one has made it easy) but in the end the things I never thought about were the toys.
I was introduced to Sprig [Link] in the most uncommon way online – the more I read the more I thought wow this is a great company. I started noticing their toys in the stores I shopped in as well. At Toy Fair I had the pleasure of meeting with the CEO Craig Storey (who is also a dad), he showed me around the product line and started to discuss the companies history.
The toys looked amazing… I loved the creative design and I loved that it was imagination play (so much play is structured games these days). The best part was that these toys are totally made from recycled materials (recycled plastics and saw dust).
I was given the chance to see the imagination play with my son first hand using the Dolphin Explorer Boat. Yes, it floats and makes for a great bath toy, but beyond that its just very cool to see my son pick up the boat make motions with it like its on the water then drop the boat (while nothing breaks!).
Sprig is rolling out some new products and two readers will be lucky enough to win one of the new toys each.
How to win it… Contest ends 11:59pm EST. April 29, 2010.
