The arrival of the recycling lorry to collect our paper, tins and bottles is always the cause of great excitement in our household; it is usually accompanied by whoops, yells and a dash for the best vantage point to watch the fun! If your kids are the same here is a toy to help encourage that early interest in recycling.
Flip'n'Tip Fred is a green, red and yellow recycling lorry from WOW, who make a whole range of environmentally friendly, battery-free cars and trucks. The lorry comes complete with two plastic people to collect the rubbish along with an assortment of recycling containers.
Fred is friction-powered with tip and release action, and despite the lack of batteries makes realistic engine sounds - all without the constant demands to recharge the batteries (you do use rechargables don't you?!) which is as good for your temper as it is for the planet!
Flip'n'Tip Fred is available from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com
