B.Hugs Links – A Timberdoodle Review!

B.Hugs Links

When I was given the opportunity to review an item from Timberdoodle’s Baby Core Curriculum Package, I jumped at the chance! Especially since one of the choices was a set of  B. Hugs Links! ($18.95) Can you believe that we don’t have any linking toys?! I knew that my little guy would love playing with these. We anxiously awaited the UPS man and were thrilled when they arrived. I also received Timberdoodle’s Baby Core Curriculum Planning Folder.

Upon opening the box, I discovered that the links come packaged in their own storage container, a clear bucket with carrying handle. Little Bit was as equally entertained with taking the lid off and on and carrying around the empty bucket as he was with the 24 colorful links. I was happy to discover that these links are a nice heavy weight with a moveable bead in the center and really smooth.  Because of the weight of them and the beads, they make a fun clickty-clack sound as they are plunked in the bucket and linked up and dragged around the house! This isn’t an annoying sound, though mama’s….the weight, feel and sound of them is really pleasant, unlike some other toys we have lying around here!

Suffice it to say, we were thrilled with our experience with B.Hugs Links from Timberdoodle. Not just Little Bit, either…oh, no, Miss Paya was in on the action with them all the time. Sometimes a little too much and we had to remind her that Little Bit can play by himself sometimes! 😉  While Little Bit mostly enjoyed tossing them around, using them as teethers and dropping them in the bucket and then promptly dumping them back out of the bucket, Miss Paya usually got a bit more creative.  They became elaborate necklaces, bracelets, snakes when all linked together and chains to tie up her brothers.  These are one of those toys that have endless possibilities for children to explore and that will be around for a looooong time.

Teething ring, anyone?!

While the kiddo’s were busily playing with the Links, I sat down to peruse the Planning Folder that came with the toys. My first thought was wow!, I never thought of that! And…I never thought of that, either! You can download this Planning Folder for FREE at Timberdoodle’s website – HERE, just scroll down to nearly the bottom.  This simple folder is packed with ideas on how to use each of the items in the Baby Core Curriculum Package as well as several very helpful articles for the homeschool family, like how to fit it all in as well as how to keep those babies and toddlers busy while you are schooling the older children.  Even after having parented 5 babies, I found plenty of tips that will help me along my journey.  There is also a neat little checklist of the toys and activities to help remind you what to do!  I know in the business of everyday, I often shuffle Little Bit and Miss Paya around and when I do have a few extra minutes, I can’t think of what to do with them!  This checklist is a perfect, at a glance reminder of something quick and fun to do with both of them.   We already have stacking cups and a few other things from the core package, but now I have more ideas of how to best use these toys with Little Bit, not only for learning but also for an opportunity to really engage him in an activity.

Disclaimer: Little Bit really *is* teething…hence the drool spots all over his shirt!  LOL

Disclosure: As a member of Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team I received the B. Hugs Links for free in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.
