We are super excited to introduce to you today the very first stacking toy that has every won BOTH of our MACT Awards! Green Toys™ Stacking Cups wins both the Excellence and Green Awards!

One of the things that we really appreciate here at MACT Awards are healthy toys that grow with our children, toys that stimulate our children’s brains, toys that won’t end up in our landfills after just a couple of playdates, and toys that can be used creatively in numerous ways.

I just love that these toys can be used in your living room, at the beach, in the bath tub and even in the school room. Our testing mamas raved on and on to us about all the joyful ways in which their children played, and continue to play, with their Green Toys™ Stacking Cups. Oh, and we think it is just marvelous that as opposed to these toys creating more waste in our landfills, each Green Toys™ Stacking Cup actually was made with recycled materials, keeping even more trash out of mother earth!

Moms Review Green Toys™ BPA-Free, PVC-Free Stacking Cups

What could be more fun than stackable toys that can be immersed in water, counted, & then tossed in the dishwasher! My answer to that question would be Green Toys wonderful Stacking Cups that are BPA (this acts as a hormone disruptor in the body), PVC, & phthalates free and contain no external coatings. These brightly colored star shaped containers have provided hours of hands on play at our house. My daughter has been able to count them over and over, learn their colors, make towers, and also found them useful in sorting her dry cereal. I love how well made they are, very thick recycled plastic, so no worrying about tough toddler play.

As a mother I look for toys that help educate and stimulate young children. These do just that, they are able to help them count from 1-6 and as they get older can help learn basic math concepts. These would also be great for a day at the beach or playing in the sand box. They are easily rinsed off and being dishwasher safe allows you to know they are getting a good cleaning from all the dirt a young child can encounter on a daily basis. Even after numerous dishwasher runs with these Stackable Cups we have not had any problems with colors fading or plastic melting, they come out just as they went in and we love that!

With a low price of $11.00 for these marvelous toys you cannot go wrong! Perfect for ages 6 months and up. Any new mom or even an experienced one couldn’t say no to these. This company provides quality items one can feel safe about their child playing with. Not having to worry about chemicals when an infant decides to chew on one.

All of Green Toys are made in the USA right in California. Their eco friendly transportation lessens toxins in our air as they keep everything local. Who doesn’t love breathing one less chemical when they go outside, cause I sure do! Every item this company sells starts out from recycled milk containers, to date they have used 8,162,872 and counting! That’s a lot of milk containers that have a great second use. Great reason to recycle if you don’t already!

And this is what another happy testing mama had to say…

It’s really refreshing to discover new toys that my busy 15 month old is interested in. We both love these earth-friendly stacking cups. The star shape is super cute and the colors are fun. They are both fun and educational. They can be stacked upside down, nested inside one another, and used for water play. Older children can learn simple math problems as well as liquid volumes by pouring smaller cups into larger ones. The age suggestion is 6 months +, which I think is appropriate since they can be played with in several ways.

They’re actually made out of 100% recycled milk jugs! Our children’s generation is growing up learning to recycle, so to show them an after product is really satisfying. Buying recycled products reduces greenhouse gas emissions, saves energy, and in return, minimizes our carbon footprint-which is so vital to our children’s future. These green toys are totally safe too-free of BPA, PVC and phthalates, which is peace of mind for all parents. The packaging is minimal-cardboard box made from recycled materials as well and printed with soy ink. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and it would make a great gift for any young child. They’re made in the USA , which is especially important today!
