B. Toys

Happy B.irthday B.toys!!

B.toys is celebrating their 1st birthday today.

I cannot believe they have only been around for a year because really, they are genius and have so many wonderful and creative toys for kids.

To help celebrate their 1st year, B.toys is giving away an exclusive B. onesie to the first 10,000 people who will LIKE them on Facebook.

It’s a no brainer really.

Just go LIKE them (because you should anyway) and then they will send you the cutest onesie.

Look how cute it looks on Lily.

ARTsy wednesday

I know, today is thursday BUT, yesterday was wednesday and it truly was ARTsy wednesday here.

We were supposed to have a picnic at southpoint with 5 other mommy friends and their kiddos but because it was not picnic weather, aside from an early walk down Lincoln Rd, we mostly stayed home and played with the wonderful artsy gifts that Lily has been given.

The easel was Lily’s birthday present from avo Hayes and avo Joao.

I love it and I think Lily does too! (one of my favorite presents from my dad is my easel, it hasn’t been used in a while but I’ve had it since 1995(?) and I think of him every time I use it)

I do have to say though, thank goodness for washable paints. ๐Ÿ™‚

Things we LOVE!

Yesterday while at Target getting a gift for our friend’s son who turned 6, we decided to go down the baby toys isle to see if something interested us and Lily.

Well….I have not gotten this excited over baby toys. EVER!

There they were, B. Toys. The coolest, most innovative infant/toddler toys I have ever seen.

From the packaging, the colors, the names, the drawings, I wanted them all!!!

We picked Elemenosqueeze (how creative is that?) for Lily and she loved it right away. Would not let it go while sitting in the cart!

Once in the car, I opened the case (super cool) and gave Lily her very first Elemenosqueeze. She looked it over, put it in her mouth. She kept it in herร‚ย  mouth. We got a winner!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Elemenosqueeze are blocks, the alphabet, animals, they squeak, they can go in water. Can you hear my excitement? You would think I got myself a new pair of rockin’ Chloe shoes or something…

I can’t wait for her to get a little older (yes I can, really) because I want these !!!!!

By the way, they also have a super cool website with funny and quirky quotes from kids and Gisela Voss (the VP) has a really cool B.log (get it?ร‚ย  clever!)

Here is Lily B.ing (had to do it!) introduced to Elemenosqueeze.
