innovativeKids green start™ Storybook And Plush Set Receives A Dr. Toy 2010 Best Green Product Award
Norwalk, CT (September 7, 2010) – Remember the first time you saw a Polar Bear at the zoo? We bet
that you wanted to pet it to see how soft its fur was. Well, luckily mom and dad were there to stop you.
And for the same good reason -- your safety -- they also stopped you from hugging the gorilla, tickling
the panda and riding the elephant. But that desire is something which all children share. And according
to Dr. Toy, innovativeKids Green Start™ Storybook and Plush Box Set Little Polar Bear has been
awarded a 2010 Best Green Product Award because it lets children not only cuddle, hug and tickle the
animals, but it teaches them about how they fit in the world and together.
Dr. Toy recognizes 40 Best GREEN Products and the astute companies making these products. They
are each making a difference in their own way and making important contributions. Each step helps.
Each step moves us towards a healthier home and community.
