@NYC Toy Fair 2009 – I really like 4M kits, specifically the soda bottle robot. Their entire line up is “green” and recycle / reuse themed. Here’s a bit about them!

Since its inception in 1993, 4M specialises in producing creative play things for curious kids. Our team of design, based in Hong Kong, is dedicated to the development of fascinatingly creative and stimulating products which enliven kid’s natural curiosity, giving them the opportunity to experiment in an exciting, but safe way; and more important, to inspire children’s thoughts and experiences beyond even their own wildest dreams. In 2004, we were chosen by the Parents’ Choice Foundation (US) as a Recommended Award Winner. This award was presented to 4M for the Kidz Labs/Super Magnet which exceeded the Foundation’s standards. In the previous year, we were honored the Outstanding Performer of the Hong Kong Toy Design Competition for the following innovative quality products; Paint Your Own Piggy Bank, 3D Glow Solar System Mobile Making Kit and Dig & Play/The Lost Jungle. One of 4M’s most prestigious accolades was given by the Science Museum (UK). Following a stringent selection process, the 200-year-old Museum approved a variety of our products. Each of these 4M products now bears, on its packaging, the logo of recommendation and approval by the Museum. From the drawing board to the finished product, we work to ensure the highest quality. Parents and educators trust our products because they are safe and well-designed.
