With a growing number of concerned and health-conscious moms (and dads) clearly voicing their preference for better quality items for their kids and families, it seems as if web-based “green” stores are on the rise more than ever. The Ultimate Green Store is definitely no exception, carrying a fine collection of eco-friendly products from some of the best “green” manufacturers around. But what makes this online store stand out to me is that it’s much BIGGER than any I have yet to experience. It literally has everything!
There is something there for everyone, even the family pet.
Not sure what to purchase? Get a gift certificate. Want to start a wish list, baby registry or wedding registry? No problem! The Ultimate Green store has you covered! While you’re there, make sure you check out their Earth Day Sale in April where you can get a variety of products like these PVC-free yoga mats on sale.
I am always looking for heirloom-quality SAFE toys for my kids, and have always loved HaPe Toys’ meticulous attention to details and safety standards. So I jumped at the opportunity to review the Eco-Friendly Park’n Go Garage.
After a few minutes of assembly, my husband and I could confirm the high-caliber quality of this wooden toy. It’s sturdy (but only weighs about 5 pounds, so my 2 year old can carry it) and made of non-toxic water-based paints and natural organic rubber woods and bamboo. In other words, all safe, sustainable and renewable materials.
The parking garage features 3 fun levels of parking spaces (including taxi and handicapped spaces) with detachable ramps, a turn-style elevator, a detachable helipad on the 4th level, 3 e-powered vehicle charging stations, 2 e-powered vehicles and 1 helicopter, and is large enough for two children to play simultaneously.
My kids absolutely adore it (it has given them hours of enjoyment), and quickly gathered all the small vehicles we had in our home to make it a “real” garage.
I definitely foresee it staying in our family for generations. If you love superior quality wooden toys as much as I do, you’ll want to check out these other adorable summer items from HaPe Toys:
BUY IT! The parking garage retails for $69.95.
Be sure to check if your favorite school or university is participating in their “Sustain a School” program, as a percentage of every sale will go back to the school.
