***ImagiPLAY review & GIVEAWAY***


As I  have said many times before, I LOVE toys that my son has to use his imagination with. Also ones that are made of wood and not that all too popular plastic that most toys are made with nowadays. Thankfully my son isn't one to like watching tv or movies, so playing outside or inside with toys is the way to entertain him.  I am a mother who wants my son's imagination to blossom and grow with things besides loud annoying noises and sounds from toys. We decided long ago to keep the toys that need batteries to a minimum in our house. We do have some, but most of the ones that we have were bought by family and friends.  I try to focus on getting toys that Monkey will need to use his imagination with. Imagiplay's is a new online toy store that carries only “Toys with Integrity” that are made out of wood and only wood.

"For over a decade, ImagiPLAY has been creating high-quality educational toys that inspire children's imaginations and the desire to explore. With the abundance of toys available for children today, ImagiPLAY sets itself apart from the rest through its motto: "Toys with Integrity." By producing quality products that connect with nature, have eco-friendly sources, and hold educational value, ImagiPLAY works to benefit the earth we share and the people that inhabit it.

They produce toys using only materials and processes that show respect for the planet and all the people and creatures upon it has remained ImagiPLAY's promise and challenge. All of ImagiPLAY's toys are made from eco-friendly materials, with plantation-grown rubberwood being a favorite. Rubber trees produce a sap that is used to make latex products. At the end of their latex-producing years (generally 25-30 years) the trees are harvested and new ones planted. But these wonderful trees have one more gift to give us -their beautiful, splinter-free hardwood, from which ImagiPLAY makes many of its award winning, heirloom quality toys. Products for which Rubberwood is not suitable are made from wood from managed forests. ImagiPLAY's factories are placed close to the neighborhoods where its craftsmen live so that the majority of them can walk or ride their bikes to work each day, enabling its craftsmen to maintain quality relationships with their own children while they make toys for others."

ImagiPLAY was wonderful enough to send us their 3-chicks puzzle set to review. It is a 6pc hand-crafted, hand-painted puzzle that will stand up all by itself to brighten any room or your little one can use it as one of their first puzzles. All of the pieces are double sided which makes this 6pc puzzle into 12 different options for putting together. They are all hand-crafted & hand painted with child-safe paints and are made from plantation-grown rubberwood, an environmentally-friendly hardwood. These ducks are so cute and so much fun to play with. My son loved puzzles......he hasn't figured out exactly how to put them together yet but I'm sure he will soon.
