Headstart Announces Launch of Recyclings- World’s First Collectible Toy Made from Recycled Plastic

Recyclings Headstart

Australian-owned toy company Headstart has announced the launch of their new product Recyclings. Recyclings are the first collectable toys to be made from 70% recycled plastic!  Headstart seeks to produce a more sustainable toy (each Recycling saves 7 bottle caps from landfills) while also educating children about the cyclical nature of recycling and plastic re-use. Even the capsule each character comes in is made from 100% recycled plastic!


The first season of Recyclings launches with over 90 different characters to collect, spanning across 8 categories: The Foodies, Nature channel, Under the sea, It’s magic, Shopping trolley, Let’s play, Sweet tooth, and Movie night. Some Recyclings will be common, others uncommon, and a few will be rare!
