Green Toys Inc. (Green Toys) has introduced its 2009 line of toys. The company uses recycled plastic milk containers to make classic toys that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, all Green Toys packaging is made from recyclable corrugated materials. The company will display its 2009 line of toys at the American International Toy Fair, taking place from February 15 to February 18, 2009 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, booth #1663-E.

For 2009, we’re committed to the strategy that served us well in 2008, says Robert von Goeben, co-founder and president of Green Toys. Our customers say they love Green Toys’ products and want more. We’ve responded by adding classic new products, while staying true to our core mission of providing the safest US-made, eco-friendly toys.

Green Toys products for spring 2009 include a Recycling Truck, Dump Truck, Tool Kit, EcoSaucer Flying Disc and Jump Rope. Winners of numerous awards, Green Toys’ products have proven themselves as best-sellers at a wide variety of retail outlets. The company’s offering continues to include the multi-award winning Green Toys Tea Set, Cookware and Dining Set, Sand Play Set and Indoor Gardening Kit.

Last year Green Toys brand toys received many top accolades, including being named one of Parenting Magazine’s 2008 Toys of the Year and Dr. Toy’s Green Toy Company of the Year Award.

Green Toys products continue to achieve the highest standards in toy safety by assuring its toys contain no BPA, phthalates or lead paint, and comply with the new strict standards of the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act of 2008.

Being green also means doing business locally. All Green Toys operations are located within close proximity of one another in Northern California, which helps reduce its carbon footprint by avoiding long transportation distances.
