CoolCanucks review of Growing Tree Toys!!

Thursday, June 17th, 2010




I was beyond ecsta­tic and was jump­ing for joy when I was cho­sen to review a prod­uct from Grow­ing Tree Toys!

Going beyond the baby years, Grow­ing Tree Toys is an on-line store offer­ing excep­tional, well made prod­ucts for kids that are as kind to the Earth as they are fun and enjoy­able. They even have a huge selec­tion of Toys that are Envi­ron­men­tally & Eth­i­cally Respon­si­ble which is exciting!!

Grow­ing Tree Toys selects the very best exam­ples of sus­tain­able and nat­ural prod­ucts for chil­dren and big kids alike!

Grow­ing Tree Toys car­ries an exten­sive line of prod­ucts that are nat­ural, non-toxic, chem­i­cal free — from sus­tain­able resources and respon­si­bly made. They are recy­cled, recy­clable, and organic,  but what makes them great is that they are all that, well made, fun and func­tional too!

You will notice that you will find many rep­utable, high-quality toy brands at Grow­ing Tree Toys!
Shop­ping is a com­plete snap, as you find find them all neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left of their web­site.







Who We Are
Wel­come to Grow­ing Tree Toys!

“We are more than just a web­site full of won­der­ful edu­ca­tional toys – we are a family-owned retail insti­tu­tion in our home­town of State Col­lege, PA! For over 30 years, our brick and mor­tar store has been chang­ing the way chil­dren play by pro­vid­ing them with the high­est qual­ity toys avail­able. After 25 years of sell­ing toys to only our local cus­tomers, we “opened” in late 2003, aim­ing to pro­vide the same excel­lent toys and excel­lent ser­vice that has made us suc­cess­ful for years.

The Grow­ing Tree Toys retail loca­tion has helped bring hap­pi­ness to “Happy Val­ley” by pro­vid­ing the best toys for chil­dren while cre­at­ing aware­ness about how essen­tial play is to their healthy phys­i­cal, emo­tional, and social well being. Our knowl­edge­able staff strives to help cus­tomers find the per­fect toy for any child, pro­vid­ing insight into the value of play and expert advice on the thou­sands of fan­tas­tic toys we carry. In addi­tion to the amaz­ing selec­tion of toys, we offer many excit­ing activ­i­ties for chil­dren at our store through­out the year that help inspire cre­ativ­ity and fos­ter imag­i­na­tion – but most impor­tantly, these activ­i­ties are fun! is more than just a toy web­site – it’s the per­fect vir­tual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of our store, offer­ing cus­tomers the amaz­ing ser­vice, won­der­ful toys and robust fea­tures they deserve while shop­ping online. Fea­tur­ing a care­fully cho­sen, well-rounded toy selec­tion, unique prod­uct details and descrip­tions, great infor­ma­tion on play, help­ful sug­ges­tions for gift givers, the best gift finder avail­able, and so much more, is truly a spe­cialty toy web­site with the health and hap­pi­ness of chil­dren at heart.

In addi­tion to mak­ing chil­dren happy with the best edu­ca­tional toys, we want every cus­tomer to have a great expe­ri­ence while shop­ping with us online, which led us to cre­ate the Grow­ing Tree Toys Promise. Our Promise is to offer:

Grow­ing Tree Toys sent me this phe­nom­e­nal Alex Friends For­ever Bracelet Kit and my DD loves it! She and her friends spent lit­er­ally hours play­ing and cre­at­ing their own lit­tle fancy bracelets — this is defi­nately a must-have for all par­ents out there who need time alone to do their house­holds chores, or just require some quiet down­time to them­selves! The girls cer­tainly came up with some neat and funky bracelets all on their own, and the car­ry­ing case is per­fect to keep all your sup­plies together and in one place! I totally rec­om­mend Grow­ing Tree Toys to every­one, and am now com­pletely sold on their won­der­ful products!

Grow­ing Tree Toys def­i­nitely gets a HUGE thumbs up from this girl!!
