We were excited to be crowned Bigjigs Play Patrol for the second year running and couldn’t wait for our first review package to arrive. As soon as we opened it Little Man saw the Green Toys Seaplane and had to have it!
We are big fans of the Green Toys brand. Unlike other plastic toys, Green Toys are made from 100% recycled plastic milk cartons. They stop those cartons going to landfill and make really cool toys with them. We have got quite a green toys collection now and reviewed their Build a Bouquet last year which is still a favourite amongst the children.
Little Man loved the Seaplane as soon as it was out of the packaging – which was purely a recycled cardboard box – another great bonus of Green Toys! The Seaplane is made of yellow and green moulded plastic with a propellor that turns and a shape that’s designed to float – making it the perfect toy for in and out of water!
Little Man has already been playing with his Seaplane in the bath and I know that when the warmer weather appears he’ll love using it outside too – especially in the paddling pool and water table! The Seaplane is well designed so that it can even float on water. For now though he mainly enjoys playing with the Seaplane around the house – making it take off, fly around the room and land again. It’s a really good size and the slightly matt finish makes it easy for Little Man’s hands to grip.
The first full day Little Man had the Seaplane he took it everywhere with him – it had breakfast by his side, was in his hands all day and he even took it to collect his sister from school. He didn’t let it out of his sight at all and when it came to bedtime he insisted on it being right there next to him too.
The Green Toys Seaplane is a really well made and well thought out toy. The ability to use it in and out of water really adds to the play value and Little Man hasn’t put it down since it arrived. This would make a wonderful gift for any child – especially one that loves planes as much as our Little Man!
The Green Toys Seaplane has an RRP of £15.49 and is available in two different colour options.
