The most discerning parents (that’s us) know that toys made of plastic should be avoided. Most plastic toys are made of Bisphenol A (BPA), which was recently declared a toxic substance in Canada while it has been banned in the United States as material for baby bottles.
While BPA has been used for years in plastic products, it has recently been found to have hormone-like properties. Exposure to BPA can cause a variety of health problems from obesity to cancer.
Thankfully, there are a number of plastic toys that are guaranteed safe for our kids. Green Toys have been making toys made of 100% recycled milk jugs, saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas. At the same time, their toys are free of BPA and meets FDA specifications for food use, so we wouldn’t have to worry about the health of our kids.
Like any other products from Green Toys, this chef set is made in the United States so you are assured that it is made with high quality and stringent safety standards.
This Green Toys Chef Set is a hit on my daughter. She would even play with her own chef set while I cook dinner or take it outside and play chef with the other kids. This set consists of a stock pot with lid, a skillet, ladle, and slotted spatula. When they get dirty, I simply put the Green Toys Chef Set in the dishwasher.
The Green Toys Chef Set is available in Amazon with a listed price of $19.99.
