Introducing Our Newest Line of Toys
At Hotaling Imports, we’re always on the lookout for high quality, educational toys that provide hours of fun for children of all ages. Starting in April, we’ll be carrying a new line of products from a company based in the Netherlands, BS Toys. Here we’ll share some information about the company’s mission and the types of products you can expect to see.
About the Company
Builtenspeel B.V. was established in 2006. Their head office is located in The Netherlands, but they also have an address in Paris, France. Their mission is to encourage play for adults and children of all ages. Since play is important for the health and development of children, they have made it their mission to create toys they want to play with. This is crucial in these times, where kids spend much of their day using computers, tablets, and phones. With BS Toys, it’s not just about playing – it’s also about movement. That’s why you’ll notice that many of their toys are geared for outside and active playtime.
Most parents know that kids need to go outside and play. Outside time makes everyone feel more connected with nature, and kids tend to be calmer indoors if they’ve had a chance to get their wiggles out. The trouble is that most kids don’t know what to do outside. Even if you have a big yard, younger children will need some direction on what to do. With this new line of toys, there are plenty of options.
If you’ve seen the Disney version of “Alice in Wonderland”, you probably remember the game crocket. Instead of using live flamingos, kids will enjoy playing the game with these cute little happy dogs. The aim of the game is to use the mallet to catapult the ball through all the hoops of the dogs. As with miniature golf, the goal is to do this with the smallest number of strokes.
Depending on where you live, it may be too early to get wet outside. However, in Florida and Texas, people are already getting their swimming pools ready. If you want to let your kids have fun on a hot day without filling up an entire pool just yet, you can use the Octopus Waterparty set. It connects to a hose and uses the tentacles of the octopus to spray the kids with water. The twist is that the octopus moves around, which leads to lots of happy giggles from surprised children.
Active Indoor Games
While parents don’t normally teach their kids to stand up straight like royal children had to in medieval times, balancing things on your head is something every kid tries. In the game Bird Race, your balance can help you win the game. The goal is to transport the bird nest with the cute birds safely from one place to another without dropping them. This game helps children develop coordination but it also provides fun and laughter for the entire family.
If you want to get your family moving in a fun way, you should try the game Moves! In this game, you’ll have to make certain moves and rely on your memory. It includes a set of discs with depicted moves on them. You must perform the moves in the right order to win the game. Children often excel at this, because they usually have better short-term memory skills than adults. However, they may have trouble coordinating their body to perform the moves on the picture. That’s what makes the game fun and challenging for all ages.
With BS Toys, you’ll find the classic thinking game chess. Their version of this classic includes extra-large figures, which make it easier to use for children. It’s also weather resistant, so you can take it outdoors and play it while enjoying the sunshine.
If you’re looking for something different, Match Puzzle might be the right option for you. This game includes different levels for varying skill sets. The purpose of the game is to lay the matches just as depicted in the picture. Even though some of the activities may seem easy for an adult, you’d be surprised how much it encourages children to think. That’s because it requires spatial recognition that children develop as they grow.
