Ideas for Upcycling Plastic Toys

Even if you consider yourself a green parent, it can be somewhat inevitable that plastic toys and tchotchkes somehow stack up in any home with children. To avoid these toys from being played with or put into mouths, yet to keep them out of a landfill, upcycle plastic playthings via these great ideas I saw over at LMNOP blog. Head on over to their post Art of Plastic to see clever incarnations from mobiles to the framed well art shown above!

I also recall from my youth, my mom glued all of our old plastic toys to a kid-sized rocking chair, and it was quite the showpiece!

Awesome idea - worth hanging on to all those annoying little pieces if you can put something like this together - lovely!
