If you’ve followed me for some time you’ll know that it’s a passion of mine to find solid start-up companies founded by entrepreneurial women and help promote them. When I first found out about Green Pinata Toys from my Sister In Law I was intriqued by their message. I had dabbled in online toy rental services before and have always been a big fan of the concept; mostly because the box seems to always show up at the right time. Like here, when we had just gotten home from the pool and the car needed to be unloaded at the same time dinner needed to be on the table and groceries put away. Occupied monkeys make such tasks much easier. And new toys are always a hit:
But what I loved about Green Piñata Toys is their carefully chosen toxin-free selection. Did you know that most toys have traces of BPA, PVC, Phalate and even Lead? I used to work for a coffee cup company and I know first hand how dangerous these nasty little buggers can be, especially around children. Green Piñata Toys are made from natural substances sustainably sourced like wood, bamboo, and rubber tree. And they are loaded with fun! When the box came I was immediately impressed at how clean, sanitized and packed everything was. The box also includes a welcome letter with product sheets that explain the play value of each toy while highlighting the skills being developed:
I’ve spoken to Moms about this type of service before and they often say it is too expensive. But check out this Math (because I’m just so good at it) – The retail value of each toy in the box is $30 and the average retail value of each shipment is $120. The total cost of the box each month is $39.99 (or every two months, $24.99). By renting vs. buying you are getting the benefit of trying out over 220 different toys you won’t find at retail stores hand picked in great detail by developmental specialists for the age range you choose.
I went with ordering The D Man’s age range (18-24mos) since he has pretty much played with Miss P.’s hand-me-down toys his whole life. It was a really nice treat for a second child. I will often catch him working hard all by himself to figure them out and I love being a witness to that. You are billed monthly, you can cancel anytime, and the shipping is free. Green Piñata serves children 6 months to 5 years.
Advance Skill. Reduce the clutter. Fight the boredom.
I’ll play to that.
