I was so thrilled when the BuyGreen website gave me the opportunity to review one of their products, a toy. They gave me this super eco-design Dump Truck for my son. It was a timely surprise for my son because he is doing so well in school.
When the package was delivered, I waited until my first grader arrives from school so he can open it himself. I can tell that he was so excited and anxiously awaiting to see what’s inside. As soon as he opened it, he saw this huge dump truck and he was giggled. You can tell from the look of his face.
I was so amazed at this toy because it’s really strong and sturdy, even a little boy can get on it without having to worry of breaking it apart, that’s how strong this truck is. The quality is excellent. Their Green toys are recyclable and believe it or not, their toys were made from the recycled milk containers that we drink from every day. You really get your money’s worth from this toy because it’s durable and it’ll surely last for years unlike any other regular toys that break easily. Rest assured that their toy won’t harm my child for it is eco-friendly and has no metal axles in it.

>As parents, we want to give everything to our children just to make them happy but there are times when we don’t have enough budgets for toys, saying NO to them would be an awful word to say. However, we need to teach them some lessons in life so they will grow up to become good individuals. Bratting our kids is really not a good idea. Anyway, we were at the store the other day and I overheard a kid asking for a PS3 Move motion controller to his mom because accordingly his birthday is coming up. Then, I overheard the little brother say I want this (don’t remember what toy he was saying) because my birthday is coming too. I guess the mother ignored the younger brother and he started whining in the store. He was crying and many people in the store were looking at the kid. The mother must have felt terrible at that time when all the eyes were looking at them. I told my husband that I hope our kids will not make a scene in the stores for it’ll be so embarrassing.
>Sometimes I feel guilty when our kids don’t get as mush attention as they want from us. My husband has a full-time job and he when he comes home it’s already midnight. I don’t have a secular job but I work part time home base. Thus, working part time at home and at the same time taking care of the house chores and kids is really exhausting. However, I try to give time for my children. We play pretend by letting their imagination work. I actually bought a Popsicle stick and we created a house, truck and shapes out of it and my son painted them. Its fun, though it’s not clean and mess free but the most important thing is that my kids were engaging to the activity that I have for them. Sometimes my son would ask me if he can paint but we ran out already. I always forget to buy the colorful paint. I’m also looking for some creative play that is re-usable, colorful and fun. I think Wikkistix.com has one of a kind creatable stuff. I’m sure my kids will love it. I will have to get it for them.
>This is my children’s bedroom. As you can see, there’s not a lot of room because of their big bunk bed, cabinet drawers and boxes full of different kinds of toys. There’s actually a patio in my kids’ bedroom. I thought about making it their playroom but it’s not going to be good because it’ll be cold out there and my kids would definitely not play out there. We just use it as our storage area where we can put all the things that we rarely use. We can’t wait to have our own house in the future so we can do everything we like including some custom paintings in our children’s bedroom and we will also make a room as their play room where all of their toys are in and not in their bedrooms.
