Eco-Friendly Products: B. Toys Zany Zoo Wooden Activity Cube

Posted Oct 03 2011 12:00am
Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to for updates on this topic.

B. Toys has sent us products before, and I felt the company’s eco-friendly promotion was borderline greenwashing .  I am pleased to say the company has improved with this toy, and I love the Zany Zoo Wooden Activity Cube we were sent.

Play as you please!
There’s so much to do!

  • Doors to open, friends to find
  • Beautifully illustrated A to Z animals
  • Loopty-loo routes
  • Zigzag race paths
  • Spinny spinners

All B. toys are eco-friendly; the packages are recycled, recyclable, some toys come in reusable bags made from recycled PP plastic, and others come in boxes that reverse to become automatic gift-wrap!

B. toys are beautiful, fun, interactive, unique, eco-friendly and affordable and they give back to children all over the world with our cause marketing partnership with Free The Children.

The lead toy designer, Gisela Voss, is from Peru. She has integrated some incredible color palates and designs in all of the toys!

I don’t know the source of the wood for this great activity cube, and the packaging is plastic free (all recyclable cardboard). I also don’t know the content of the paint, and there is a slight odor upon opening for the first time.

I find the activities on this cube great, much better than the one I purchased at Costco when my kids were little.  I think every toddler should have a wooden activity cube!

Would I buy this product?  Probably not.  $100 is a lot of money, and for that price I would want assurances as to the wood truly being ethically sourced, vegetable dye based paints, and cardboard that is already made from post-consumer cardboard. If it was cheaper, I probably would buy it, as the one I had for my kids certainly didn’t meet the eco-friendly standards just described.   This toy is made in China.

Disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples, unless noted differently in the review. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
