With Earth Day approaching, I am pleased to introduce you to the most creative, educational, and eco toy for kids. It's Build a Dream Playhouse. A cardboard structure that you can build with your child, paint, decorate and have tons of pretend play in.
ECO COMPANY: Their products are manufactured from 80% recycled materials that result in an end product that is 100% recyclable. Also, their distribution center is located only 38 miles away from our manufacturer, which drastically reduces the fuel consumption required to ship our products.
My daughter wanted the imagine wagon ice-cream truck and when it finally arrived she was more excited than a shopping spree at Toys R Us. My experience has taught me that kids like to create the toys and projects themselves. They feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. It also allows for parents to get involved and work together with their children.
We had a ball putting it together, which didn't take too long. An adult assembling it would take about 10 minutes, but my daughter really wanted to take an active role, so we took our time and in about 30 minutes her wagon was ready to roll.
We "drove" it outside and began to add some life to it in the form of paint, and markers. This was actually so much fun for me that I had to hold back so my child could do most of the drawing. We listened to music and really had a great time together. When it was complete, we set it up in our yard and within minutes some neighborhood children ran over to play as well. Our plastic tea set, desserts, and ice-cream set came in handy and I also brought out some money so we could work on making change as well.
I cannot recommend this toy enough. On so many levels it is awesome! It also is constructed with strong cardboard and it's design is well thought out. I know this because we had some high winds the other day and 3 children were playing in it for the afternoon. It held up perfectly and looks brand new.
The prices range from $39 to $69 and (free continental US shipping ((sorry Hawaii and Alaska readers)) you can purchase here!
