Review of Babalu's FeltTales Story Board9:42 PM
Those of you with homeschools or daycares understand how expensive it can be to equip your home with high-quality, educational items that are also very fun to play with. I can remember spending hours playing with my school's felt boards, and when I went to research how much they would cost to use in my own home -- I almost passed out!
There is a more affordable and practical alternative, and it comes from a company called Babalu. Their FeltTales Story Boards are of the same fun felt that you remember as a kid, but cost way less (around $20!) With at least 19 pieces per play set, there is lots to do.
Recommended for ages 3 and up, these are great to take along to church, in the car, or just when you need some quiet activities for the kids to do. We tested out the Dinosaur one, and my youngest son spent almost 2 hours rearranging the felt pieces in different ways on the sturdy board with convenient carrying handle.
Various pieces included dinosaurs, plants, rocks, and lava. How much more cool can a play set be?
We're not the only ones who see the value in these story boards. The FeltTales series has gotten such awards as two iParenting Media Awards, the Canadian Toy Testing Council 3 Stars, Creative Child Seal of Excellence and Preferred Choice Awards, Dr. Boy Best Vacation Toy Award, and a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval -- Whew! That's a mouthful :)
With several varieties to choose from you can look forward to themes like: Pretty Princess, Busy Day at the Farm, Pirates at Shipwreck Cove, and Let's Go to the Ballet.
Babalu’s FeltTales can be found at specialty stores nationwide and online at www.amazon.com and www.roundtabletoys.com. For more information visit www.babaluinc.com
