Our reviewer Melanie has just about the cutest little girl we’ve ever seen. So when she got the chance to surprise her with some great B. Toys products free of charge, we were excited to share the experience with you. While she did receive complimentary products to facilitate this review, all opinions are her own.
My daughter will be 16 months old on Christmas day, and it’s the first time we get to watch her excitedly open gifts and play with her toys. I’m trying to ignore the already known fact that she’ll end up playing with the paper and product boxes more than the toys. As parents, my husband and I want Christmas morning to be as magical for us as it is for our daughter. So, we’ll be going from store to store and shopping online for some of the best gift ideas for children this holiday season. Our little girl is independent enough to leave the baby years behind, but not old enough yet to enjoy some of older children’s toys. We’ve been doing our research, which means going up and down the toy aisles at every store we visit. Did my parents really have it this hard when I was a kid?
B. is a children’s toys brand that I’ve seen in many toy aisles on our browses. The bold colors, unique design, and wide range of toys is what always caught my eye. I’ve day dreamed about my daughter’s bedroom being filled with only B. toys. They left that kind of visual impression on me.
It wasn’t until I received my Easel Does It that I realized that B. had so much more to offer than pretty colors and design. Their product packaging was minimal, yet safe enough for shipment, and included recycled and recyclable paper. Parents know what I mean when I say that less is more. No unnecessary twist ties, zip ties, or unbreakable plastic. It’s better for my patience and better for the environment. More toy companies need to follow B’s lead. They’ve built their brand on a seeing of being that goes beyond just physical space. A commitment built to all children to empower them, have them experience more, and ignite a creativity that only play time can in children of all ages. It’s a fond memory that we look back on as parents and sometimes still long for the sense of wonderment. I’ve been right along side of my daughter in her awe with her new B. toys, and I’m so glad she has them. You’ll see why:
Easel Does It is a must have for children of all ages. My daughter is a little young at 15 months old, but only because she’s not quite tall enough to scribble in the middle of the board.
I didn’t have time to wait on my husband to get home to put this one together. It only took me maybe 30 minutes to assemble the easel – legs, trays, and baskets alone. That’s with the help of a curious toddler too. If you’re thinking about giving this as a gift from Santa, only assemble it ahead of time if you have the space to store it. I wouldn’t recommend assembling and de-assembling.
I was impressed by the natural wood look at the unique B. designs found on the storage cloth baskets and side pieces.
It’s hard to tell from the photos, but the storage bins are sturdy and have room enough for a tons of art supplies. You’ll need them with the double sided easel. One side is a chalk board and the other is a whiteboard that erases easily.
You’ll even find handy clips at the tops for art paper. Each side has a tray attached below the board to hold markers, chalk, erasers, and more! I can’t believe how great this product is to help my daughter find her love of art. She may need a step-stool to enjoy making abstract art now, but the size of this easel will accommodate her for years! The quality for the product is phenomenal, and it’s a quality investment if you’re looking for timeless gift idea for your child.
I think the B. Easel Does It is a wonderful gift idea this Christmas. I tried holding out to give mine to my daughter from Santa, but after she fell in love with it I knew that wasn’t happening. I’m so glad that we found a toy brand that goes above and beyond to show children the magic of playing and can still be conscious of the environment. I won’t think twice about what brand to buy from this Christmas, next Christmas, or any birthdays come up. Thanks B. for showing my family the power of how to just B. you! You’ve really made a difference.
