FeltTales by Babalu, Inc.: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis Babalu’s FeltTales will be a great way to engage both of my daughters in traditional imaginative play that does not require batteries, computers or television.

materials FeltTales “Pups in the Park”  by Babalu, Inc., and two excited girls ready to dress the pups for the dog show.  About Babalu, Inc.:

babalulogo Remember when a toy could captivate a child’s attention and stimulate their imagination without the aid of a computer chip? We at Babalu, Inc. feel that child’s play is important business. Too important in fact, to leave it up toys that quite frankly “do” so much while ironically doing so little.

That’s why we created FeltTales – a new line of artfully designed classic felt storyboards designed to inspire young minds. Children ages 3-7 can use the many movable pieces in bright captivating colors to create their own stories and scenes for hours of open ended play. And they’re perfect for sharing.”

results My 4 year old daughter, Lily, has never really been one to sit down and play an electronic toy.  As she gets older, she will pick up an educational video game, but it never hold her attention for more than a few minutes.  So, when I see a toy that encourages her sense of imagination, I love to see her reaction!

babaludogs I thought the FeltTales “Pups in the Park” would be a great surprise for her!  Each FeltTales product comes with a colorful felt board and 19 felt pieces to set the stage for wonderful stories.  They also now include a sturdy plastic pouch to keep all of the felt pieces together and minimize loss.

Lily loved the FeltTales!  She immediately started placing the pups on the board and dressing them in mix ‘n match outfits for their first dog show.  The board and pieces are well made and the included pouch is essential!  Both girls played with the board for quite some time and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them play together and use their imaginations.

summary

FeltTales make great gifts for the holidays or birthday parties.  Each storyboard is under $20 and comes in scenes appropriate for both girls and boys.  In fact, the FeltTales Pretty Princess storyboard recently won the Tillywig Toy and Media Sterling Fun Award for “exceptional quality and conceptual originality.”  Babalu, Inc. also recently acquired WJ Fantasy which has some great toys including shadow books and touch and feel blocks.
