PACIFIC PLAY TENTS Pacific Play Tents’ newest products encourage children to participate in imaginative play with others. The Food Truck comes with mesh windows, inside pockets, and an order counter with roll up windows so children can serve the customers from the menu, which lists hamburgers, ice cream, and more summer treats. Kids can roll down the window when they are ready to close for the day. The beautiful graphics on the Butterfly Garden include cut-out leaves around the rim of the pavilion to help bring the garden to life. The part-mesh top ensures that kids have plenty of ventilation. The Interchangeable Multi-Panel Poly-Cotton Canvas Teepee has four interchangeable panels, allowing kids to choose from a graphic or solid colors. Each panel attaches with buttons that can be easily changed. The four wooden poles and poly-cotton fabric make the teepee sturdy and durable. Now, kids can have fun in their tents during the day or night with the Silver Lantern. The lantern features a handle so that it can be hung in a tent or held in a child’s hand. The ABC Mat is an interactive and engaging learning tool for kids. Each letter has a coordinating image to make learning fun.
GREEN TOYS The Farm Playset, from Green Toys, includes a barn; a pick-up truck; fences; farmer, cow, sheep, and pigs characters; and a hog shed. Kids can open and close the barn doors, corral the pigs, and load the pick-up truck. The Fire Station Playset comes with a fire station, a fire engine, two firefighter cat characters, a rotating water cannon, a command center, and stackable bunk beds. Kids can open and close the doors to the station and help the cats slide down the fire pole. Both new play sets allow all of the pieces to store inside, and both feature a built-in handle for easy onthe-go fun. Green Toys introduces the Storybook series, which allows kids to see their toys embark on different adventures. In Train Off the Rails with Kody and Dot, Kody and Dot drive a delivery train off its tracks and discover a new way of looking at the world. In Boats Built for Speed with Davey and Pearl, Davey and Pearl try to figure out the best plan to deliver boxes across a lake. And in Mixed-Up Trucks with Baxter, Rosie, and Gus, the trio learns that the only way to get things done is to work together.
