When we were in San Fran we ran into a great toy store in the Westfield Mall by Union Square called GO! Toys, Games, and Puzzles. We decided to get Thomas a little something for the car ride home, we purchased this great little wind up spaceship. If you haven’t heard of this toy store you have to check it out. It was great. The guy working was amazing. At checkout he told me he and his friend has started the franchise and are just getting it up and running. It was definitely one of the coolest toy stores I have ever been in. Good luck to those guys! If you are ever in the area you really should stop by. I also wrote a review on yelp if you want to look. I am the only one. Haha.
While browsing I landed on a dump truck. I was first caught by the style of the toy. It was simple and plain. Weird right? Most people like the bright, shiny things. But not me, I am down the easy and realistic. Upon looking closer I found that it is made entirely of recycled materials, even the package it came in! The brand is Green Toys. I had never heard of them before, but I was instantly a fan. If you haven’t seen them take a look! http://www.greentoys..com. They are fairly priced and have great ideas!
Thomas and I are heading out to Omaha this weekend for Matt’s Family reunion. His niece an
d nephew are two and four. I picked up the tug boat for Will and Thomas to mess around with in the pool! And I’ve pre-ordered the fire truck for Thomas!
It is definitely worth taking a look next time you need to get a gift for a child.
