In order for my son to work on the many arts and crafts I have been writing about, I needed a space or area for him to work in. As I was searching around for a cute little cubby to store the growing number of art supplies for my little guy, I came across a new toy company called Justb-byou.
Justb-byou launched about six months ago with their main focus being making toys that make a difference. They are committed to the protection of the planet through their use of eco-friendly, recyclable materials. For many of their toys, they have eliminated packaging altogether, instead offering the toys in reusable bags made from recycled polypropylene plastic. The packaging reverses into wrapping paper! I found this ever so thoughtful! Though their toys are made of plastic, you can be sure it is lead and phthalate-free.
You can find a toy nearly for every age group broken down by B. curious, B. smart, B. creative, B. sculptural, B. lively, and B. caring. We have the You Hue toy under the category of B. creative and absolutely love it! It is a terrific “comfy creation center” that comes with 10 chunky washable markers, lift up storage, and 3 sided pockets and compartments below. It is great having a home to store my sons’ ever growing art supplies and projects. He is slightly obsessed with the use of crayon, markers, and pencils at the moment. His passion for art is so extreme we have to monitor his time with it or the crayon ends up everywhere including wall, floor, or any other “canvas” once his paper is filled. The You Hue is also very pleasing to the eye with its “fashion forward” colors and simplicity in design.
Justb-byou toys are funky, fun, and playful for any child. They strive to be a voice to children in helping them explore all sides to who they are. I love their motto, which reads:
“We want to be a voice to children that says it’s okay to be curious, to be pensive, to be loud, to be happy and sad all at the same time, to be generous, to be afraid, to be quiet, to be wild, to be fun, to be open, to be specific, to be poetic, to be giddy, to be serious, to be smart, to be free, to be you. Just B. Just You. B. You”
Be sure to check all their website for their full collection of toys! Available at Target and specialty stores only.
