WILD CREATIONS PROVES THAT GREEN AND POOEY ARE WORTHY OF AWARDS

Myrtle Beach, SC (September 7, 2010) – Want to get your kids to eat creamed spinach? Then tell them
it’s mushed-up Martian brains. Want to get them interested in science? Get them stuff that’s green (as
in frogs) and has the word poo (as in… poo) in it. Want to get a Dr. Toy 2010 Best Green Product
Award? Then do exactly as environmentally conscious Wild Creations, the maker of wild, wonderful
and wacky science toys does, because they were just awarded a pair of them. And guess what? Besides
being eco-friendly, both of the toys are green and poo-ey.
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.
