Message from Dr Toy

Dr. Toy announces the Tenth Annual Dr. Toy's Best Green Toy and Children's Products Awards and Best Green Company Award - 2016

For the tenth year Dr. Toy, recognizes the Best Green Toy and Children's Products and the Best Green Company.

Past Best Green Company Winners are: Bears for Humanity, Blue Orange Games, Green Toys, Hape Toys, Hugg a Planet, Maple Landmark, OWI, Plan Toys, and Thames & Kosmos.

The 2016 Dr. Toy's Best Green Company Award is proudly presented to Green Kids Club.

The award winning Dr. Toy's Best Green Toys and Children's Products are made by companies striving to inspire children to appreciate the environment and learn to take better care of our natural resources. These companies make products to teach children more about our planet and produce playthings based on green principles. These are excellent examples of playthings that are made safely, healthy to use, and have plenty of special play and learning values.

As awareness grows, more families are thinking and considering new directions that are safer, more balanced, healthier, and in many cases are reflective of the "slow" movement as they provide play that respects the child's pace of exploration.

About the Best Green Company

Dr. Toy is pleased to bestow the highly coveted tenth-annual 2016 Best Green Company Award to Green Kids Club

Unique, multi-faceted approach to engaging kids through stories, activities, lessons, video and music. The Green Kids Club works with animals to improve our world by using basic sustainability concepts of preservation, reduction, prevention and mitigation. Stories are developed to teach children the importance of protecting habitats to maintain ecosystems, animal life and ultimately human life. More details at
