If you’ve read my reviews before, you may or may not have picked up on the fact that CW is a bit of a car lover (and trucks, trains, planes…really, anything with wheels)! As you can imagine, when a box of four Wheeee-ls arrived, CW was a bit ecstatic. Okay, that might be putting it mildly! He was thrilled, elated; he was totally beyond happy! And, even though these vehicles are advertised for ages 1-4, both of my boys are in love. The good news is I love the Wheeee-ls too!
If you haven’t heard of B. Toys your life is sadly missing something. We actually have a number of B. Toys, including B. Fish and Splish Boat and B. Zany Zoo (our Zoo looks a little different, but is from B., nonetheless) and B. Spinaroos. I cannot speak more highly of B. Not only do they use clever quips and amazing colors on their packaging, but they also truly strive to minimize their impact on the Earth. They use recyclable packaging (and formerly recycled items), soy-based inks, and water-based varnishes. You will not mind one bit when your child chews on these toys! One phrase found on the box stated the following: “Recycled + Recyclable Paper. Maybe you were the Queen of Scotland in your past life. I was a box. And proud of it. Please recycle me and let me be a box again. Your Highness.” I mean, if that doesn’t get you to giggle, what will?
Well, I know what will. Watching your children play with B. Toys! And, play some more. Wheeee-ls are our new go-to toy. We “send” them across the basement to each other, race them, and crash them. And your ankles will be safer with Wheeee-ls, as they bounce right off of you with that soft rubbery feeling. They are adorable, colorful, chunky, pull-back vehicles that will spark your child’s imagination. The car rings, the truck chimes, the racer rattles, and the Taxi squeaks. No batteries necessary, and easy on your wallet too (Wheeee-ls are under $20 for hours of priceless entertainment)!
What’s that you say? It’s not enough to save the planet (which as B. reminds us is the only planet we know of with chocolate on it)? It’s not enough to inspire your children with bright colors, fun sounds, and crazy textures? It’s not enough to encourage your child to “B. himself?” Well, then I have even better news for you. With the purchase of each B. Toy, ten cents is donated to Free the Children, so you can help others too.
B. Smart and pick up your very own B. Toys today! These are great for birthdays, holidays, and the planet! B. conscious. B. green. B. amazed. You won’t B. disappointed!
A huge thank you to B. Toys for sending me the Wheeee-ls to try out with my boys.
