Description of Product: “With Earth Day right around the corner, Wonderworld Toys is inviting you to help make our dear Mother Earth a cleaner and greener place for all of us!
To celebrate Earth Day this year, the eco-friendly wooden toy company just launched an interactive social media campaign, “Every Day is Earth Day at Wonderworld”, where they’ll donate one tree for every Facebook “Like”, Retweet and Tweet with #EarthDayAtWW throughout the duration of the campaign from now until April 22nd.
Wonderworld loves planting trees, in fact, the company has a year-round program called the Tree Plus Project – a tree planting initiative started in 2007 that plants two trees for every one tree Wonderworld uses in their production. Since the start of the program, Wonderworld has planted approximately 60,000 trees back in the forests of Thailand, and continues to replenish the environment with planting thousands of trees annually, projecting to plant 17,200 trees in the year 2012 alone!
Wonderworld, best known for their award-winning classic wooden toys, intertwines educational value with play value with an assortment of products for children ages birth and up. From balance bikes to sorters and stackers and furniture, Wonderworld products are created from environmentally-friendly Rubberwood and crafted with quality so they can be passed down from generation to generation. Rubberwood is a replenishable material, meaning that after the tree no longer produces latex, it is utilized for production – and the company even extracts the pigment out of leaves to help create toys as well.”
Review of Product: This Spacy toy is sure to be a favorite of any child! It is so simple and well-made, 2 of the critical hallmarks I look for in a toy! It promotes critical thinking and problem solving, both very important for young children. The toy is made from rubberwood which is environmentally friendly and I don’t feel so bad when I see a child with a toy like this in their mouth which is where toys inevitably wind up! I also love companies that give back and their Tree Plus project is definitely socially and environmentally responsible which I am thrilled to promote!
