I love when I come across toys that are unique and simple. Do not get me wrong I like the toys that are flashy and noisy too. However, the simple toys are what my kids seem to like and it reminds me of when I was a kid as well. When I was a kid, I had wooden blocks, wooden furniture for my dollhouse, and much more. So, when I came across the company BeginAgain Toys I was thrilled when I had the chance to work with them on a review. They were kind enough to send me a Green Ring for my little girl and some Penny Blocks perfect for my little girl in a few months. I also love the fact that their toys are Eco-friendly, which makes it safe for my kids to play with. BeginAgain offers tons of Eco-Friendly toys and games for infant, toddlers, and preschool aged kids.
Green Ring $10.00
Made in the USA from Green Dot corn starch bio resin and maple wood, Green Rings are 100% compostable! This clip-friendly teething toy is great for travel. The soft outer ring can be removed and sanitized in the dishwasher.Comes in three different colors: green, blue and pink.
The two materials offer fundamental two-stage play:
1. Pop the outer ring off for soft teething and grabbing.
2. Snap them together for grabbing and fine motor play as your child gets stronger.
The Green Ring is super cute yet it is so simple. I like that it can be played with two different ways but also doubles as a teething ring. It does come apart fairly easy which makes it easy to clean. However, I do not have to worry about Lillian being able to take it apart for some time.
Lillian is able to hang onto the green ring and move it around with ease. She does chew on the teething ring and seems to be happy with how it feels on her gums. I am happy to see Lillian is enjoying playing and chewing on her new green ring.
Penny Blocks $15.00
This elegant set of "first blocks" teaches numbers, colors, grabbing and stacking. Made from sustainably harvested rubber wood, each of the ten, 1.25-inch square blocks is numbered on one side and stained a different color all over with non-toxic, child safe stains. Clean up and display are easy with the rectangular storage box.
The Penny Blocks is super cute with all of the colors and the storage box. I like that each block has a number on it allowing you to teach your little one how to count and place the numbers in order. I also like that each block has its own color and there is not one color used more than once. All of the colors are the most common colors making it a fun and easy way to teach your little one the basic colors. I also like that they will help Lillian learn how to stack, grab and throw I am sure.
The blocks however are for ages 12 months and up so Conner is having fun with these. Lillian will have fun with these in about 9 months. I love the traditional toy wooden blocks and these are just that.
