Sprig Toys Review & Giveaway! *CLOSED*







My daughter and I had the chance to check out some toys from Sprig Toys and we're really excited to present this review and are lucky enough to offer one parent a toy for free!

These really fun toys are growing in popularity. A few months ago I hadn't even heard of Sprig and through another blogger, I saw these adorable little items and asked them if I could check them out too. Sprig Toys are a company based out of Colorado. They are made to be earth friendly and are simple, yet sturdy in their design. Their products are made of recycled Sprig wood which contains child friendly bits of recycled woods and plastic. They are not painted but, the wood itself is stained at times to achieve color. Sprig uses "safe pigments, keeping our toys free of soluble heavy metals, phthalates or endocrine disruptor's."

Taken from Sprig site:

"Sprig Toys, Inc., is an Eco-friendly company dedicated to making the best toys
the right way.
Inspired by our collective desire to keep kids active and the planet healthy, Team Sprig is dedicated to infusing creativity, smart design, quality manufacturing, earth-friendly materials, product satisfaction and responsible business practices into a superior line of fun, kid-powered toys.

We help make the world a better place and we get kids off the couch. Pretty cool, huh?"


My daughter just turned three and is definitely in that imagination and active mode. She likes to play with her dolls just as much as cars, etc. She really took to her Story Builders Barnyard toy! She helped me set up the fences, the barn, and the animals. She liked the fun illustrations and the little scene it made. It's made for 3 years and up but, is a little difficult to put together on their own at that age. A parent definitely needs to be involved and it should be done on a flat surface, not a carpet.(too hard to stand the characters up)

They also are featuring toys from their Adventure Series right now. the Adventure Series features non electronic and electronic toys that are full of fun and imagination. All of them feature a little adventure guide and themed items to match the adventure.



My Take

I really liked the simple, clean designs of the toys. I like that they use a child's imagination and very few battery powered items. I like that they are Eco friendly as well as child safe toys. The only thing that I didn't love is how many pieces the Story Builders set came with. It makes for more clean up. Otherwise, I really give this company a thumbs up for making toys that are educational and fun!
