My Curlysue and I were totally excited when we received a parcel from Oh! Boy kids accessories a couple of weeks ago. Elle from JustEllaBella is a fab WAHM who started this online store after facing the conundrum of not finding cool stuff for her very cool kid, Aidan, to wear. She dreams up, designs and creates every single product by hand and thrives on being as quirky and original as possible - I mean, how cool is it to visit a store and know that you won't see 50 other kids walking around wearing the exact same thing as yours?
From scarves to potty training friendly velcro belts to peak beanies for tiny heads - this lady thinks of it all.
The latest edition to the store are her busy bags, which she describes as "take-a-long toys to keep kiddies busy." These bags contain "quiet" games and things for your toddler to do when you need to keep them entertained in instances that need for a quiet child :) I love that she's included an educational aspect to each bag - so they learn as they play and you get some adult time. Score.
Our package from Oh!Boy contained a really cute sensory dino and a hand painted bandanna bib.
I thought the dino to be pretty darn cool because of the pink taglets attached to the side. My little one loves using her pincher's to poke and pull at anything and everything she sets her eyes on. Needless to say, she loved the silky taglets and yep, she tried to pull them off. Operation: Destroy the Dino.
Fortunately, these handmade dinos are stitched together beautifully and are durable - much to the dismay of Curly.
The dinos contain dried lentils which are awesome if you're looking for a fun sensory toy.
They also double as a cold or hot compress and I've found that they retain heat/coldness really well (you can stick them in the fridge or pop them in the microwave)
Of course, Curly chose to taste them as well (everything goes to the mouth) so yes, if you're looking for a teether, this would work too.
What I love the most about Oh!Boys range of bibs is that they are so original and really not "bib looking", if you know what I mean. Let's be honest moms, bibs can make or break an outfit :)
See pic for the degree of cuteness:
I am so chuffed to announce that Oh! Boy will be giving away an amazing prize consisting of a sensory dino and a ultra funky kiddie lounge pants and a matching bib.
