A new toy company is seeking to combat the world of automated toys with its kid-operated, earth-friendly products. Sprig Toys, a company based in Colorado with manufacturing facilities in North America and Europe, makes toys for preschoolers that require more activity from children than the typical electronic toy. Lights and sounds on their trucks and adventure vehicles operate when a child pushes or pumps the toys. These battery-free toys are made from SprigwoodTM, a bio-composite material made from recycled wood and reclaimed plastic.
Sprig Toys offers three series of toys: Adventure Series, Sprig Hollow, and Eco-Trucks. The Adventure Series includes three adventure vehicles, each with its own Adventure Guide, and two additional Adventure Guides. The Sprig Hollow series includes a Sand Truck, HeliScoopter, Barn, Sand Tools, Garden Pot, real wildflower seeds, and the Dragonfly, Bee, and Butterfly characters. Three Eco-Trucks are sold: Dump Truck, Excavator, and Loader. Prices range from $12.99 for an individual Adventure Guide to $59.99 for the Discover Rig. All Eco-Trucks are only $14.99.
