GET A WEEKLY DOSE OF PARENTING INSPIRATION

GIVEAWAY: B. Toys

I just gotta say, I am a pro at rotating toys to keep things exciting in our house. We have bins of toys we store in the garage and rotate in and out when the novelty wears off. But still there are days when the kids are just over everything we have. Doesn’t matter that they haven’t seen it in three months, they still aren’t interested. And those are the days when I need to drive through Starbucks and order my “tall drip in a grande cup” around 2pm, just to survive the day.

Well, we hit the jackpot the other day when B. Toys sent a box of goodies for Jackson and Clare to try out. So out went the old toys and in came the new. Sanity was restored for another day.

b. inspired building blocks

building blocks B.inspired

Jackson, our builder, went straight for the B. Stackadoos. He instantly stacked them as high as he could. He normally plays with Duplos, so these Stackadoos bring an unexpected twist to the whole building concept since they can be attached from all sides. It was fun to watch him try new things and test the laws of balance and gravity.

Clare was digging the colorful B. Wheeee-ls. They make cute noises (nothing obnoxious) and go really fast on tile! I have been known to lug these cars to Jackson’s Little League games to help pass the time for her. My kids really enjoy these toys and I thought it would be fun to share their joy with your kids. So, are you ready to win some awesome B. Toys?!
