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.”

Check out this sweet review of eeBoo’s Striped Biggies: http://www.thetoyinsider.com/eeboo-has-slick-art-supplies/

I love that they pick up on the #details: The set also includes a pencil sharpener—no more hunting around the house for one the right size! I also appreciate the dedicated spot for the sharpener molded right into the tray for safekeeping.

Toys that consider parents too!

See you at Toy Fair!
