Recently, I went to the store to buy Everett a new toy. I’ve barely bought any new toys for him, and decided that my good little boy was due for something new and fun. I’m always concerned with the materials used in toys, since he’s chewing and licking everything, and there are so many scares out there about PVC, BPA, and other potential carcinogens.
What I found was a whole line of super cute, eco–friendly toys! They are called B. The colors are bright, but not nauseating. They’re educational and fun. And—from a graphic design standpoint—the packaging is phenomenal! It came with recycled materials, biodegradable ties, a reusable zippered bag, and a quaint little booklet with cute sayings from kids. I bought the chain of bugs that link together, but I have my eye on the “Parum Pum Pum” (Christmas, perhaps?). Everett loves hitting things and hammering things, so I’m sure it’ll be a hit if we get it. (Yes, cheesy pun intended.)
The “Fish & Splish” is super cute too, though I’d like to see it in person. I’m finding that so many bath toys have holes in them, which allows water in and turns them into a little bacteria and mold petri dish which doubles as a bottle for a nine–month–old.
