Review & Give-Away: ImagiPLAY

October 5, 2010

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!

Would you like to have an ImagiPLAY toy for your family?

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” :)

    Wow, they have ADORABLE toys! I love the farm set, but because of the choking hazard, I’d probably go along with the pull-along elephant. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Our daughter LOVES blocks, so I’m between the safari stacking blocks and the pretend “cut-up” fruit, because I love to cook and she likes anything with variety – she picks a favorite and drags it around. I think that would be perfect, too. Thanks for the giveaway! I’d love to add to her Christmas or birthday gifts! Either way – excited to find this website – we received a lot of hand-me-down light up toys, but we let her play with boxes, spoons, blocks, and books – and those are her favorites :)

    I messed this up last time, too! My second item is the fruit, and a 3rd would be the elephants you tried out – I painted elephants on canvases (but in pink and brown :) to decorate her room. I love that theme and she’d love elephants, too!!
