An earth-friendly feast for the imagination, just in time for Earth Day. This uniquely stackable Green Toys™ Sandwich Shop stimulates kids to “cook up” all kinds of meal-time scenarios.
This is ultra-safe play food that meets food contact standards, so parents can relax when their kids pretend to take a bite. Every piece looks good enough to eat and is designed to stack, which develops fine motor skills, provides communication opportunities, and minimizes a child’s frustration. This is an innovative Sandwich Shop that lets kids play chef and server by taking orders, creating custom dishes, and then play waiting on diners. The colorful sets feature realistic, interchangeable ingredients that stack vertically in any order and work perfectly with other Green Toys kitchen sets. The Sandwich Shop playset comes with everything needed for two complete, three-inch-square sandwiches, including two bread slices, bun top and bottom, burger patty, fillet, cheese slices, produce toppings, plus Sandwich Shop order forms. All Green Toys products are designed, manufactured, and assembled in California. Made from food-safe, 100% recycled milk containers, they contain no BPA, PVC, phthalates, or external coatings and are dishwasher safe, save energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Each toy is packaged in a 100% recyclable corrugated box printed with soy inks—no twist ties, plastic, or cellophane.
How Green Toys Inc. is a Green Company
Founded in 2007 by Robert von Goeben and Laurie Hyman, Green Toys Inc. provides consumers with environmentally friendly and safe products while making efforts to improve and preserve the world around us. Green Toys™ pioneered the use of recycled materials in children’s products. The company’s popular toy products are made from 100% recycled plastic milk containers—a food-safe, eco-friendly material that contains no BPA, phthalates, PVC, or melamine. The milk jugs are collected curbside in California, the home of Green Toys, and all phases of its operations, including toy design, manufacturing, assembly, and distribution. This ultra-local supply chain not only saves energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, but also ensures better worker safety and factory environmental compliance with California’s strict regulations. The Original Green ToysTM line, including the best-selling Green ToysTM Tea Set, debuted in early 2008 and was an instant hit with kids, parents, and retailers. Green Toys has earned many awards for its products and a Greener Packaging Award for its recycled corrugated boxes printed with soy-based inks. In 2008, The Second International Dr. Toy’s Green Toy Company Award was presented to Green Toys Inc. Made without plastics, cellophanes, twist ties, or glue, these unique boxes are good for the environment and frustration-free for eager kids and their parents. Launched in 2009, the iconic Green ToysTM Recycling Truck may now be the best-known eco-toy on the planet. Toy stores around the world make it the centerpiece of their eco-friendly product displays. Much more than a cool vehicle, the Green Toys Recycling Truck teaches kids how to do to their part in protecting the Earth. My First Green Toys™, a line designed for babies and toddlers, was released in March 2010 as a result of consumer demand for safe products made from safe materials for younger children, has received high acclaim. The Green ToysTM Stacker was praised for its ultra-safe, no-post design, and the Green ToysTM Tugboat, a colorful bath toy with a fun and useful spout feature, surpassed all sales projections to become one of the company’s top-selling items. In 2011, Green Toys Inc. extended its eco-toy lines with innovative play food and learning products and celebrated its launch of Green Eats, a complete line of reusable tableware for kids.
