Holiday Guide: Introducing BKids {Review}

bkidsI am so excited to introduce you to BKids – a fantastic toy company for little ones ages 0 – 36 months.

BKids stands on the principle that kids should do what they do best – Be Playful, Be Happy, and Just BE KIDS. They want their toys to be both educational as well as fun, and every product is designed and created with love. Because they care so much about the safety and well-being of every child, they ensure that all products comply with the highest quality and international safety standards. {Something this mom is excited about!} BKids wants parents to spend quality time with their children – exploring, enjoying, playing, and enriching their lives.

I recently received two items to review: The Soft Peek-a-Boo Blocks and the Stack ‘n Link Pal.

Gage doesn’t have many toys, so I was thrilled that this review would be just for him. All the baby toys we had have been lost, broken, or are still packed in a box, so I was excited to have some fun new toys for Gage to play with.

Gage really loves both toys. He loves chomping on the Soft Peek-a-Boo Blocks. He’ll sit for the longest time just chewing down on them. It’s great, because it distracts him from the fact that he’s actually sitting up, and I really think it helps relieve some of the teething pain he’s been having. I’m not crazy about the “peek-a-boo” idea behind these blocks. The hard plastic blocks that the soft blocks fit inside have really caused a lot of trouble. Pinched fingers, sore heads… but that was instantly resolved just by putting up the hard outer blocks until Gage is a bit older. I love the texture of the soft blocks, though, and think that no kid could ever have too many of them.

Gage also loves the Stack ‘n Link Pal. The older kids lost the cute little monkey head that goes on top, {and no, Mama ain’t happy about that!}, but Gage will still sit and play with this for the longest time. He can’t quite get them to stack yet, but he sure loves banging on everything with them.

The other day, I babysat for a friend of mine. She has a little boy that will be one in January – so he’s just a few months older than Gage. I pulled out the toys and both of them had a ball playing with everything.

Overall, these toys are a huge hit in my house. I love that they encourage Gage’s fine motor skills, and they keep him preoccupied. We can play with them together, or he can play with them alone. Either way, he’s just as happy as can be!
