New Sprig Toys are here!

Sprig Hollow is the newest line from Sprig Toys. Sprig is an environmentally friendly company concerned with keeping the planet healthy and keeping kids off the couch. Their lines are all "battery-free, eco-friendly, paint-free, kid-powered toys." A bio-composite material they call Sprigwood is made of wood and plastic that are recycled to form these child-safe toys.

While the recommended age is 3 and up I think younger kids could get just as much fun out of these playsets. Our neighbor's son came over to join us and he is just shy of 18 months. You could also use these in the bathtub or even a kiddie pool outside this summer. They are just so open-ended. Take a look...

Sprig Hollow comes in three separate sets:
Bee & Buterfly's Farm ($29.99) comes with the barn, truck, bee & butterfly figures, a scoop and funnel, and a beehive/flower pot with wildflower seeds embedded in paper. The barn and truck have pieces that snap together really quick! All the figures from this line have pop-out faces and wings and are all interchangeable.

Dragonfly's HeliScoopter ($14.99) comes with the Dragonfly figure, another seed paper for planting, a helicopter/sand shovel, and a landing pad/sifter. I love that all the equipment has dual uses and the sifter pad has to be my favorite!

DuneBug's Sand Truck ($14.99) includes the DuneBug figure, an easy to assemble truck with a bed that can be used as a bucket, a top top for a scoop, and a cab for a rake, and yet another seed paper! The figures sit atop the trucks or heliscooper perfectly.

Marshall was so excited to take the set outside when it finally warmed up. Although it's great for indoor play, it's PERFECT for summer sand & water adventures! We were glad for the excuse to clean out our sand box and poor in some new sand. I loved watching as Marshall brought the little characters to life. His imagination grew as he made them interact with each other. All set up and ready for play

The true toy test: every afternoon Marshall asks to go out and play in the sand box with his "barn set."
