When it came to baby gear and toys, my husband and I made a pact to avoid anything with a cartoon character on it as long as we could. We don’t dislike cartoons, and we aren’t anti-television, we just thought “why not avoid it?” – look for toys that are less “commercial” and more “individual.” I love B. Toys for this. Their about page explains just that, they inspire individuality. I received a product from B. Toys in exchange for my review, all opinions are my own.
Encourage Individuality with B. Toys
Most people with toddlers probably know the bright red plastic barn that just about everyone has – the one that has the chubby little animals and a cute little blonde farmer with overalls. The Baa Baa Barn is not that. It is a funky colored barn with fun colored animals that will have your little one dancing to the fun tunes and exploring each of the tiny details that make this toy unique. In addition to coach lights that light up, balls rolling down spiral silo, and a noisy little chicken in the loft, each of the four mis-colored farm animals have their own tune that plays when they step out on to the barn’s dance floor.
The Baa Baa Barn is recommended for children 1-5, and while my little guy doesn’t understand quite yet how the noises are coming from the barn, he loves to wiggle to the tune and watch the balls spiral down the silo.
We have many of the other B. Toys on our Amazon Wishlist for Little Dude for Christmas (and his first birthday coming soon after). The Global Glowball is a fun light up globe that plays 39 different songs and lights up – what a fun way to teach our little guy about the giant world we live in! And, with his sticky little fingers all over my car keys whenever he can find them – the Funkeys from B. Toys are a hopeful replacement to the real thing – with sounds and buttons they will be a welcome distraction while on a road trip.
