Green Toys Tool Set - Good Green Fun™

My Review:

This toy is made from recycled milk containers. SAFE being BPA, PVC and Phthalates Free.


Comes securely packaged in an all cardboard box with No unnecessary plastic waste.(love this!)


NO batteries needed. This tool set is recommended for ages 2 and up. My 14 month reviewer showed interest in this toy and it looks like it’s going to be a fun way to develop his imagination and fine motor skills. Sturdy plastic that’s surprisingly lightweight. No sharp edges.

Usefulness – There are twelve screw holes on the tool box but only two screws. I’m needy and want a few more. Also, I don’t like the design of the nails. Dad’s opinion is that they look like concrete form pins. But really, only someone with previous experience in the poured wall business would say so.

I recommend shopping Green Toys for safe, fun, and educational toys.
