25 Crazy Dayz of Giveawayz Sponsor Spotlight: Sprig Toys Eco Blocks Review


Sprig Toys is an eco-friendly, socially responsible company that is dedicated to bringing your kids high quality, affordable, and entertaining toys that are made to last. And not only all those great points either. With Sprig Toys, you can rest assured that your kids are playing with SAFE toys. 

Sprig Toys are made primarily from their signature Sprigwood material which is a blend of recycled plastic and reclaimed wood. By re-purposing these materials, Sprig Toys has created a long-lasting, bio-composite, green, 100% recycled material to create their line of toys. Sprigwood is also dyed during the production process using pigments that have no heavy metals, no phthalates, and no endocrine disruptors. What you get is an awesome, chemical-free toy! With very little packaging, and recyclable at that, you can see that Sprig Toys clearly seeks to make an impact on the environment by lessening their carbon foot print.

Sprig Toys sent us a 75-piece set of Eco Blocks to review for Buddy. Can you tell he was excited?? He rarely strikes a pose for a photo but he knew that would be the fastest way to get me to open the box! :) Your kids are going to love the new Eco Blocks from Sprig Toys!

We have a couple other blocks sets at home, but these are by far my favorite. The Sprigwood is very study, and feels like a very hard plastic. Not only do I really like the safe material these are made of, but these stack together nice and snug too. A few other bonuses are that Eco Blocks are dishwasher safe, they are perfect for small hands to hold, they come in 6 bright colors and 6 shapes, and the creativity is endless for hours of open-ended fun. Inside the box was a basic reusable bag to store the blocks in too. The blocks are best for ages 12 months and up, and are plenty large to be safe and not pose a choking hazard to your youngsters.
Buddy loves building various "towers" and "garages" for all his cars with his new Eco Blocks. His motor skills are getting lots of great practice when he plays with these, and he certainly learns lots of patience and how to move slowly when he builds a tall tower. Buddy will sometimes get frustrated with other blocks if they aren't sticking together well, but we don't have that problem with Eco Blocks. I practically jump for joy when I find an toy that is a learning opportunity too. Also, if you have a kid that is tough on toys like Buddy, you'll love the durability of these. They can withstand lots of abuse and still look brand new!

Price: $48 for the 75-piece set of Eco Blocks

The Verdict:

We love Sprig products, but have not tried these blocks yet. I love that they're large enough to be safely played with by a 12 month old (since I have two of them), even one who likes to put everything in her mouth.
