What do you see when you look at an empty milk jug? When Laurie Hyman and Robert Von Goeben look at an empty milk jug, they see super durable, eco-friendly toys! Green Toys was started by Hyman and Von Goeben in 2007, after the duo decided to apply their industry experience to their mission of manufacturing toys that make a difference. Since then, Green Toys has turned 105,712,900 milk jugs into toys that delight children all over the world.

As part of the company’s commitment to creating jobs, stimulating local economies, and helping the environment by reducing carbon emissions from transportation, all Green Toys Brand toys are manufactured in the United States. The toys are designed with a reductive process resulting in simple designs that remove barriers to free play and maximize safety and durability. The toy designs are clean, vibrant, and cartoony with lots of rounded edges and fluid shapes.

Small friends love Green Toys because they have fun designs, function well, and cater to a variety of classic play patterns. We grown-ups love Green Toys because of the peace of mind we get knowing that these toys are built to last, that they can be played with inside or outside, and that they’re doing right by the environment. 

Check out our assortment of Green Toys and give a gift that gives back to the planet:

Green Toys Car Carrier

This awesome toy is like 5 toys in 1! This set includes three super smooth cars to carry, the car carrier trailer, and the truck itself. You can race them to see which car is the fastest (always red) and they all store neatly in the hauler.

This plane should be named Ferris, because it’s ready to take off! This cartoonish take on the classic propeller plane is a real crowd pleaser.

Green Toys Dump Truck

Saved from the dump to get built like a truck! The Green Toys Dump Truck is everything you could want from a classic construction vehicle!

Green Toys Fire Truck

Lots of kiddos are enchanted by the idea of firefighters, and this toy will help them visualize their dream of saving cats from trees and rescuing families! It’s got the classic fire truck shape and an extendo ladder that lifts and rotates!

Green Toys Rescue Boat & Helicopter

This combination offering from Green Toys has a boat, a chopper, and a couple of characters to play with. Your young one will delight in rescuing their other toys by land or by sea with this set.
