I came across these felt “busy books” in my quest for toys to entertain and engage my two kids (3.5 and 10 months) on the plane for our upcoming trip to Hawaii. Although we haven’t received them yet, I am very excited to! I can tell by the other reviews that these will be well worth it. I love the simplicity and variety of the types of activities shown in each book. After debating which would be best for each child, I ordered several of the preschool aged and baby/toddler ones, including Brainy Bunny, Little Lamb, I See Ice Cream, the Name & Age pages, Farmyard Fun, Happy Hippo, and Mighty Mouse. I went a little overboard and I plan to collect them all! Can’t wait to gift them to my kids. I’m especially excited to gift Farmyard Fun to my 3.5 year old, who loves cooking and has recently grown curious about where food comes from. This book will be a cool way to teach her more about that.
A close friend of mine bought the busy bear book for her child. On a recent play date i noticed my daughter obsessing over it. She was preoccupied for a whole hour. Thats a win in my opinion. Absolutely convinced me to purchase one of our own. Waiting patiently for it to arrive. She will be I've the moon.
The book is better that I imagined. It has fun games and learning activities (i.e., identifying animals and matching them with the food they eat) in addition to fine-motor skills practice. As a child psychologist, I think this is an amazing book for child development. I will definitely be buying more.
I am so impressed with this product. I am a pediatric physical therapist and I absolutely love how this book incorporates fine motor skills, songs and rhymes, and early cognitive skills. The way it is constructed makes it durable and I love that the pages can me removed or you can change the order as you wish. This helps to keep it fresh for your little ones. I’ve purchased other activity books but they are 4-6 pages front and back and kids tire quickly with them. I purchased this as a gift for my nephews and my 6 and 4 year old don’t want the book to leave the house… whoops! Such a great product and I’m eager to get my next activity book… for the kids. ;)
A wonderful book with lots of activities... can't wait to give to my busy little granddaughter on her birthday.
