Begin Again toys has been a long time favorite of Home Grown Families for their use of natural materials to create toys that inspire creativity and imagination! Begin Again toys are made from plant based materials including natural rubber, sustainably harvested wood, wheat starch plastic, bamboo, and natural rubber. They leave out all of the bad stuff including BATTERIES, and put in everything needed to make amazing toys~” invention, imagination, and good ole’ fashion fun”!
Begin Again toys allow kids to just PLAY. Kids were created to be full of imagination, creativity and noise, but many toys of today stifle that. I love that Begin Again toys engage my children in a way many other toys can not. We recently had the opportunity to play with some great new toys and of course share them with you!
There are endless possibilities with the new Alphabites A to Z puzzle~ made from natural rubber wood and painted with non-toxic stains! My children were eager to play the minute they set their eyes on it! This can be used for imaginative kitchen play~ for cooking or dining!
The girls cooked together and enjoyed a meal together! The wooden case features a stove on one side and a serving tray on the other. The girls were adorable pretending to nibble on their new foods!
They even made a breakfast tray for this Mama!
In the classroom setting, these would be perfect for early reading skills and to put in alphabetical order! We will definitely be adding this to one of our daily work bins.
The Balance Boat of Endangered Animals is equally as ADORABLE and versatile! Children can play as a game (solo or with others) balancing animals on the boat- while practicing dexterity and patience! The animals are double sided and make the perfect pocket pal for adventures!
This new addition to the Begin Again family is great for independent play as well. Children NEED to know how to entertain themselves and need to know how to play with the same object for more than 5 minutes to improve attention span.
I watched as my daughter attempted to balance all the animals upon the ship time after time after time~ she demonstrated patience and perseverance! While she was never able to accomplish getting all the animals on the boat, I watched her move all the sea animals into the pretend water to make room for other “land” animals. I call that a HUGE success!!
Shop Begin Again toys for your little ones this Holiday season- you will LOVE them!
