I freaking love Green Toys! Well worth your money
on April 17, 2015
This particular rocket is great. The top detaches as a lander/mini rocket and my 3 year old son loves putting other things there and in the rocket.
In general, I freaking love Green Toys. They aren't the cheapest out there, but they shouldn't be either. I'd rather get my kid one good Green Toy than 2 or 3 crappy Chinese toys laced with who-knows-what kind of heavy metals and shortcuts they take and put in their paint/plastic.
-High quality molds. You don't see the seams (you know those places in plastic toys where the molds clamp together).
-Texture is very nice. Think milk jugs (duh, cause they're made from them)
-They are durable and have few breakable parts
-My kids love them
-Made in 'Murica!
-Since they're made from recycled milk jugs, you don't have to worry about what's in the material. Not to beat a dead horse, but the Chinese put anything in everything and that's how they make things for so cheap, ship them halfway around the world, and can still make a profit.
-Packaging material could even teach Amazon's "Frustration Free" packaging a lesson
-A little pricey
Overall though, these are legacy toys that your kids can give to their kids. We have 4 kids, and a bunch of toys. Many of these cheap toys will be given away, many more will break and/or be thrown away because they're flimsy, ugly, annoying, and questionably safe. Green Toys are simple and durable and should last a long time.
