For those of you out there with tiny little babies, I want to tell you two things:
1. Snuggle them as much as you possibly can. Everyone tells you they grow so fast, and everyone is dead on. Just two years ago we were settling into the realization that we were expecting, and now I have a tiny child (not baby) on my hands!
2. If you think your baby is fun now…..JUST. YOU. WAIT. I swear, Darah delights me with something new that she has learned or that she is able to do every single day. Play time is a blast now; it’s more fun than it was a month ago, it will be even more fun a month from now, and my head just about explodes when I think of the adventures we’ll be having in one short year. Kids are awesome!
Today I wanted to tell you about a toy company who really seems to have their fingers on the pulse of the joy that comes with being a kid (and being the parent of a kid!). I’d like to introduce B. toys to you. This is a line of toys that you will find at Target stores throughout the country, and they are, in a word, amazing!
The Chief Toymaker at B. (wouldn’t you love to have that job title?) says, “Everything we do at B. is part joy, part mischief, part serendipity.” Doesn’t that pretty much sum up what it means to be a kid???
B. toys has created a fabulous website that is truly engaging, and doesn’t simply serve as a info hub about their products (although you will find that information there, as well). They have gorgeous worlds made out of B. toys as well as my favorite section, the quote gallery. This is a place where you can read some hilarious (and sometimes poignant) quotes from children, and you have the opportunity to leave your own. You can design a custom quote and send it to your family and friends as an e-card or post it on Facebook. I love it!
B. toys cares deeply about providing quality toys that will encourage individuality and creative play They also care about the environment, packaging their products in environmentally-friendly material. They even have some toys whose packaging reverses to become wrapping paper. That is genius, people. Now that you see that B. is a company with the heart of a playful child and the mindfulness of a wise sage, let me tell you about the toys themselves! We had the opportunity to try out the Spinaroos, which are Bristle Blocks in modern colors and funky designs. Some of the blocks have twisty bases so that your creations can move in a circle. They are ick-free, containing no BPA, phthalates or lead. They are PERFECT for chubby little hands that are working hard on hand-eye coordination and gripping. They are recommended for children ages 2-6. At 16 months, Darah is already a big fan, so I think you can give these to a child under 2.
They are easy to connect together, which gives Darah a boost of confidence as she tries to build things (though her favorite thing to do is tear apart what mommy and daddy made!). This is going to be one toy set that will get years and years of play, no doubt about it. I absolutely love the Spinaroos set, and I’ll definitely be looking for other B. during my next Target trip. They seem to be high quality, and I really like the vibe of their company.
So how about you? Have you purchased any B. toys, yet? What do you think of the toys they have shown on their site? Do you have a funny/cute quote to share with them?
