Eco Bonk

The classic inflatable bop bag has been reborn!

Eco-Bonk offers superior quality, rugged durability and peace of mind that it is not only healthier for children to play with, but also safer for the environment.  The vinyl is manufactured with a revolutionary additive technology, enabling it to degrade naturally into the earth in 9 months to 5 years.  The vinyl bop bag is then covered in a lovable organic cotton wild animal cover (each with their own personality).  The toys are screen printed with water-based inks and packaged in a recycled carrying case.  Each toy is made in the USA and with your purchase; a donation is made to the Wildlife Alliance.  Save animals’ habitats and adopt one of these adorable bops today.

Green Toys™

As if the name doesn’t give them away, Green Toys™ does their part to help the environment while giving your children fun toys to play with.  Green Toys™ uses recycled milk containers as the main ingredient to create their toys. The milk containers are re-processed into high-density polyethylene (HDPE – one of the safest, cleanest plastics available). Everything from the collection of materials to the production of Green Toys™ occurs in Los Angeles, CA.  On average, every pound of recycled milk jugs used in the making of Green Toys™ saves energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries. Green Toys™ products are tested by nationally recognized, independent, third-party labs (located in the USA). The toys contain no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint.
