An eco-town for more sustainable playtime
Whether you're hunting for a great gift for your tots this year, or want to nurture your own inner kid, Eco Town by sustainable toy company Plan Toys might just be your ticket. As a kid, I remember my train sets and a particular rug that looked like a map of a small town that kept me busy for weeks on end. The updated, greener version by Plan Toys is made entirely from natural, chemical free recycled rubberwood and finished with non-toxic water based dye. And instead of just the general store and gas station found in usual setups, Eco Town is made up of green transportation and buildings, from solar-powered buildings to an eco-charging station. The toy is more than a toy, but an educational system for children (or you) to plan systems, use logical thinking, sequencing, and spatial reasoning. The Eco Town might also help kids understand their own town, safety, energy, and more. The Eco Town setup starts at $149 and can be coordinated with Plan Toys' other offerings from railroads to houses and more.
