Review & Give-Away: ImagiPLAY
If you are a frequent visitor to this blog, then you’re probably well aware of our parenting philosophy in regards to toys. As previously discussed in this post, B and I like O to have simple toys that inspire imagination and encourage interaction rather than overstimulate. Soft cotton toys with organic cotton or wool stuffing and wood toys with water based paints, if any paint at all, are our preference.
I’ll admit, I have probably spent an inordinate amount of time researching toys, but if you ask me it’s time well spent! During some recent online research, I was happy to find ImagiPLAY toys. Over a decade ago, Babera Aimes found herself inspired to “…leave this earth with some kind of beneficial legacy.” So began ImagiPLAY toys. Throughout the years, ImagiPLAY toys has held true to it’s motto: “Toys with Integrity”. Made from eco-friendly materials, ImagiPLAY toys not only values keeping our children safe, but also protecting the planet they inhabit. Please read more about ImagiPLAY and their policies here.
Happily, our family was given the opportunity to review an ImagiPLAY toy of our choosing. We chose the Pull Along Elephants. This particular toy features a mama and baby elephant that connect and come apart with velcro. The elephants are made of certified organic cotton with wheels of naturally sustainable hardwood. The elephants are pulled along with a little mouse attached to the end of a short length of rope. That’s right, a mouse. How cute is that!?
O adores this toy! He pulls it along behind him peeking over his shoulder to make sure the elephants are keeping up with him. He’s even been known on occasion to stop and give them a snuggle. So sweet. Mama really likes this toy as well. Not just because it meets my criteria for safety, sustainability, and simplicity, but also because it’s so cute my heart nearly skips a beat!

Winner: Comment #12:
And yet again My family didn’t grow up with cable or Nintendo games, and I think it really fosters creativity. For our daughter, we love to see what she comes up with with just basic household items… she really seems to prefer those anyway. I got a bucket to store her toys in, and rather than play with the toys, she pushes the bucket around. We went to a local book fair and I picked up a pair of shoelaces for her, and those have been her current favorite toy. I think you do your children a service when you let them use their imagination – they’ll never get “bored”
