B Toys Review


Toys, toys and more toys is what is around our house. But seriously how many toys does two boys need? Well our boys seem to think the more the better. Lately we have been downsizing in the amount of toys our boys have. But we have also been replacing some with stuff that our boys enjoy doing like building so blocks are a must in our house. Lately though we have been trying to find more unique items for the boys to build with. Since Bubba is a little older he is starting to get into the more complex building stuff; while Pumpkin is still young enough that he likes to build with anything he can.

I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful toy company that I have had the privilege to work with B Toys. To me B Toys has things figured out nicely when it comes to be Earth Friendly. I feel this way because the difference in their packaging goes way beyond the surface. They scrutinize every piece to ensure its impact on our children’s world is as light as possible. How awesome is that and how many other companies can say that?

They do this by:
Minimizing.
Using recycled materials.
Packaging toys in bags you’ll love to reuse.
Designing boxes to become pretty trays to hold tiny treasures.
Even making some packages reversible to become gift wrap.
Their inks are soy-based and their varnishes water-based.
Every single bit of their clear plastic is recyclable and marked #1,
the most widely recycled plastic available.
And when they simply have to create a tie to hold a toy in place, it’s made out of
100% recycled polypropylene (PP), easily recycled again.


I like that the B Toy company is so conscious of what our children are playing with and the impact that the toys and the packaging has on the Earth. I never use to be very aware of what my children's toys had in them or where they came from. But lately with all the recalls due to lead poisoning and cheaply made products I have quickly became more aware of what is coming into my home.

I got the pleasure of reviewing the Spinaroos from B Toys and it was a perfect item for my boys especially Pumpkin. They love making things and then tearing them apart to make something else. Bubba is always making planes and some sort of flying objects while Pumpkin is making buildings.



I liked how easy the Spinaroos were for the boys to build with and they came in such a beautiful box that the blocks can be stored in while not being used. The Spinaroos are very colorful bristle blocks that come in many shapes and sizes. There are also heads and decorative designs to be able to make some very interesting and decorative figures. These make an awesome gift for any child who loves to build or likes to be creative. With all the different shapes, sizes, colors, heads and decorative pieces your children can let their imaginations run wild for hours and hours. Make sure you check out all the wonderful products that they make over at their website or at a local Target store by you.

  2. I love this! I love that they are so eco-conscious, down to the zip ties on the packaging! Thank you for making me aware of this toy company. I will be buying toys from them very shortly. With 11 grandkids, I'd rather buy from a green company! Thanks!

  3. I love B Toys! We don't have this particular one, but I'll be sure to check it out. I always make a "B" line for B Toys every time we go into Target, because i know they are a product I feel comfortable buying for my son (and those are not always easy to find!)
