Happy Earth Day, everyone! We’ve been celebrating on the blog all week long, and today we’ve got one more earth-friendly favorite — an educational and environmentally friendly game for kids. Because it’s never too early to start inspiring our little ones to respect in all things natural and develop admiration for the environment.
Tree Hopper, a family-owned and operated Chicago based business, has given an eco update to everyone’s favorite memory game (which I continue to be amazed how much my kids love and learn from). Each set of wooden Match Stacks is handmade in their small shop using sustainable midwestern maple and non-toxic paints, and the energy that powers the Tree Hopper office, warehouse, and shop, comes from 100% wind power. These guys are pretty passionate about both their product and the planet.
Portable for on-the-go play, toddlers can test their memory skills while building vocabulary and developing hand-eye coordination. With this particular Backyard Creatures set, they’ll also learn to identify everyday critters that each play important roles in our ecosystem. Even toddlers who are too young to play the memory game will love matching and stacking the shapes and vibrant colors. And, because of the heirloom quality of the pieces, you can count on years and years of enjoyment.
