April 5th, 2011B Toys Review
Launched in early 2010, B. Toys is capturing the hearts of parents and children with their line of toys that spark curiosity and imagination, making play time both fun and education.
I was sent three products from B. Toys to review and let me first start by saying that I love the colors that are incorporated with each product. I even love the design of the justb-byou.com website.
The Okideoke Karaoke Microphone is colorful attracting a young child’s attention. It is a great toy for imaginative play. The microphone comes with eight prerecorded children’s tunes that your little one can sing along too and they can record their own voice. The microphone comes with AAA batteries to get you started, so your child can become a karaoke star right away.
My husband had to try it right away when it arrived. I’m thinking I might have to invest in one for him. Overall a great toy that I know my friend’s little one is going to enjoy playing with.
The box it comes in also wraps itself. Just fold over a few cardboard flaps and secure, and the toy is “reverse packaged” and ready for gift giving! No need to stop in the gift wrap aisle. Not only that, once the gift has been given
the specially designed, board-thick tray becomes a pretty box to store markers, collections
or other treasures.
The Bristle Block Stackadoos set comes with many pieces. There are different shapes allowing your child’s imagination to run wild. They are flexible and easily positionable I would highly recommend these building blocks to a anyone with children 2 to 6, though younger children may need your help to put the pieces together. ( Even old children will enjoy playing with Stackadoos. Please don’t tell anyone, but I had fun.)
Many B. toys come in the world’s first self-wrapping, reversible packaging, however the Bristle Block Stackadoo set instead comes in a beautiful recycled polypropylene (PP) bag that mom can reuse again and again. The bags look and feel almost like fabric.
Highly rated by Able Play™ for children with special needs B. Pop-Arty Beads are a great toy for developing fine motor skills. It also a great teaching tool for teaching children how to count. I love the plastic container they come in for easy clean up.
Recommend for children ages 4 to 10, your child can make rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc. The possibilities are endless.The beads were super easy to pop together and I can guarantee your daughter will love them. B. Pop-Arty Beads was one of Disney 2010 FamilyFun Toy of the Year (T.O.Y.) Award Winners.
