B. Toys | Encouraging Kids to Just, B. You

Just B. Just you. B. you.

I first became a B. Toys customer when my first daughter was very young. She got the drum and the piano, which, Back then, her B. Toys were made under the Parents’ brand {ahh, now they look and sound familiar, don’t they?}. B. Toys are now their own and the colors have changed somewhat – but it’s still the same quality toy. My daughter played he B. Toy music for years, then they were officially passed down to the Twins. So, 6 years of play and these toys didn’t lose appeal or quality – I’d say that is pretty remarkable. Yet, I wasn’t aware of all the other modern B. Toys available, until I had a look through the website – there really is a ton!

Ages 6 Months-3 Years:

B. Toys has the One Two Squeeze blocks. This set includes hand-sculpted pictures of animals and numbers {1-10} on squeezable and colorful blocks. Since they are BPA-Free, babies will certainly love chewing on and examining these blocks. My twins stack these blocks and also point out the colors, numbers and animals. Plus, these blocks float – so they can make good tub toys as well. Though the girls are just at the tail-end of the age range for the One Two Squeeze blocks, they still do play with them. And, when babies and younger kids visit our house, this is one set that everyone can play with.

Ages 2-6 Years:
Bristle Block Spinaroos are bristle blocks – so they can be connected to one another, to make any shape imaginable. Some of them have twisty bases so that they can turn in a circle too. Now, pair this creativity with the fact that some have a distinct shape or face – and you can make some pretty imaginative objects and people! I can understand the huge age range of this toy since the twins and my oldest all like to play with Spinaroos {in fact, I loved bristle blocks myself, as a kid}. The Twins especially like that they can easily connect them together, they are so proud of themselves when they do! This is the first set that they prefer doing by themselves, preferring their own creations rather than letting Mom help out. Bristle Block Spinaroos comes with 75 pieces and a reusable bin for easy and convenient storage. They are much different than the ones I grew up with, since B-Toys are BPA, phthalate and lead free. Again, there are safe for chewing on as well {which is not a bad idea since the teeth on these would massage the gums well}. Plus, they are so very colorful and vibrant – just one marvelous set!
Ages 4-10:

My daughter just loves the Pop-Arty – which are beads, to make jewelry. They come in a durable Bucket {which is great to add since you won’t be scrambling to find someplace to store them after opening}. My daughter must play with these beads at least once per day. I like that they are big in size, so that when one is dropped – you can easily find it. Yet, the attach together so well that is won’t come apart without being pulled. Pop-Arty is kept in my oldest daughters’ room, since they are smaller parts and I don’t want the Twins to get ahold of them. Yet, when supervised – the Twins also love playing with these beads. At 2.5, they can pop together the beads and create a necklace too. Pop-Arty comes in fun colors and different shapes of beads. The set also comes with bracelets and rings, to which beads can be popped into, to make different jewelry. With over 500 pieces in the Pop-Arty set, it’s great for a single child or a few – and there’s no fighting over pieces! So, this is a great toy to bring out when my daughter has a friend or two over. It’s cute to see a few girls make jewelry for each other and then put on a fashion show! intended for ages 4-10 years, Pop-Arty will be used for a long time!

B. Toys package their products in environmentally-friendly material. Some of their toys come with packaging that reverses, and becomes wrapping paper or a gift box! How’s that for Brilliant recycling! Actually, B. Toys have one of the most inspirational and uplifting mission I have seen in a long time. Please have a look at the B. Story, it’s amazing! And, for more B. Awesomeness – check out the B. Quotes – adorable things that kids have said. In fact, the site – much like the products – will put a smile on your face, so check it out. B. End
