Holiday 2015- eeBoo in the Press

Posted by design on Dec 22, 2015 in Articles we like!, Award, Just for Fun, Press Articles, Product Feature

Holiday 2015 has been a bustling season for eeBoo in the press! Good Housekeeping loved our Greenmarket Game so much, that they awarded it as a best kid-tested toy of 2015. Meanwhile, over at the Today Show, the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio named our decidedly low-tech Giant Floor Puzzle as the winner in their Best Toy 2015 series, as it scored the highest among several toys closely reviewed by children, meaning it is fun to look at and easy to play with! Our Noisy Ball continues to be a distinct choice for children under a year to play with,  as Parents Magazine included it in their roundup of American Baby’s Best Toys of 2015, and eeBoo classic, About Face has a shining moment on HLN weekend express as a best toy for children with special needs with its endless combination of objects to create expressions!

eeBoo embraces #BikeFace

Posted by design on Apr 7, 2015 in Articles we like!, Just for Fun

Via Vox.com (The Montifraulo Collection/Getty Images)

“Some late-19th-century doctors warned that — especially for women — using the newfangled contraption could lead to a terrifying medical condition: bicycle face.  In 1890s Europe and America, bicycles were seen by many as an instrument of feminism: they gave women a measure of increased mobility, began to redefine Victorian ideas about femininity, and were eagerly taken up by many women active in the suffrage movement. Bikes helped stoke dress reform movements, which aimed to reduce Victorian restrictions on clothes and undergarments so women could wear clothes that allowed them to engage in physical activities.”

Spring!

It may snow later today, but officially it is the first day of Spring! Which gets us excited about parks, pools, and playing outside. On that note, did you see this article in the New York Times? What are your thoughts on how much supervision is too much or too little?

“The Building Blocks of a Good Pre-K”

Posted by design on Oct 22, 2014 in Articles we like!

Did you see this article in the New York Times? Shael Polakow-Suransky and Nancy Nager explain how meaningful PLAY is important in our pre-schools. Here at eeBoo we are always thinking how to nurture literacy, cooperation, imagination, creativity and compassion through play.

Illustration from Antonia Ladrillo

“As they play, children develop vital cognitive, linguistic, social and emotional skills. They make discoveries, build knowledge, experiment with literacy and math and learn to self-regulate and interact with others in socially appropriate ways. Play is also fun and interesting, which makes school a place where children look forward to spending their time.”

“What does purposeful play look like? When you step into an exemplary pre-K classroom, you see a room organized by a caring, responsive teacher who understands child development. Activity centers are stocked with materials that invite exploration, fire the imagination, require initiative and prompt collaboration.”

Via Toys are Tools by Jen Choi: “eeBoo’s instructions actually advise you to talk it out. “The bear and the dog both have balls.” or “They are both playing ball.” It’s all part of organizing and practicing use of the folders of your mental file cabinet “

We’re curious! When looking for a preschool program for your 4 year old what qualities are you looking for? How do you make time for play in your home?
