It’s not very often that I get excited about children’s toys.
However–a few months ago, I embarked on a quest to find a special set of blocks that my son was crazy about.
And of course, I ended up finding the blocks at Target (isn’t that where all cool stuff goes to live?) and found out that they were called Bristle Blocks, and this particular set was made by a company called B.
As I started reading the tags that were attached to the set of blocks, I became very interested in the B. company.
Okay, that was an understatement. I fell in love with them.
Partly because I love the colors that they use for their products, and their attention to detail. They make the most ordinary things so fun and creative, and if you know me at all, you know that I LOVE that.
But the thing I really loved is this–their products are really about kids.
Not just getting kids to want to buy their toys.
This company really focuses on and celebrates the creativity, magic, and fun that makes children so special. This company realizes that children are our legacy.
Therefor, they focus on creating toys that will help raise creative, intelligent, generous, kind, and happy kids.
Every toy is accompanied by a little booklet of hilarious and thought-provoking kids’ quotes, reminding us how thoughtful and funny our little one’s can be.
And all of their toy packaging is not only gorgeous, but eco-friendly. The packages themselves are recycled and recyclable, and any inks used are soy based.
I recently contacted B. about their products, wanting to know if I could do a review for them. I know that they are a fairly new company, and I wanted to share their toys with my readers over the holidays.
The response I received from B. was very enthusiastic. They were very kind and thoughtful, and were extremely appreciative of the fact that I wanted to share how much I loved their toys.
And they sent me this:
The Parum Pum Pum, which is a drum with a big handle and strap, that comes with and serves as storage for:
Silly centipede drumsticks
Jingle bells ant
Busy bee maraca and clacker
Cute caterpillar tambourine
Two shaka-shaka eggs
I was a bit worried that my 6 year old son would be too old to be interested in this, but I was wrong.
He was on it immediately.
And yes, we are talking about the same kid who only wants to wear black clothes with skulls and flames on them.
The first thing I thought was how great the quality of this toy was. Each instrument is shaped like a cute animal, and the colors are bright and fun. I LOVED that they all stored inside drum.
And I get that we aren’t always crazy about giving our kids “loud toys”. But something like this inspires creativity, and I really love to encourage that, even if it costs me a few moments of my sanity.
B. Products are most widely available at Target and on Amazon.com. Target is currently sold out of the drum, but you can order it on Amazon for $33.
They have so many great products ranging from Bristle Blocks, Jungle Jam, You Hue, and the Sugar Chute….just to name a few.
