What is a Bilibo, you ask?

Bilibo is a new kind of toy – the elementary shells leave room for the child’s imagination. Instead of imposing a specific play pattern, Bilibo is open for a wide range of interpretations and encourages children to invent their own games, to play and have fun in an active and creative way. Indoors and outdoors, in the sand-pit, at the water or even in the snow – Bilibo is full of surprises…

Bilibo is a companion for children from the first year onward and inspires a large variety of playing behaviors. According to their age and interests, children will interpret the shells in many different ways.

The soft, round shapes and strong colors stimulate the senses and the child’s innate curiosity. They beg to be touched and handled. Toddlers will move them around, fill them with objects, sand or water and empty them again.

The shells can be aligned or stacked in many ways. Like three-dimensional puzzle pieces, two shells are joined to form a sphere – a friendly face with a broad smile. Playfully the children train their sense of space as well as hand-eye coordination.

When growing older, children will discover new ways of using the shells. Rocking and spinning for instance are great fun and help develop motor skills and the child’s sense of balance.

Role-playing and make-believe games are vital for the child’s social development and powers of imagination. Again, Bilibo shines as a wonderful accessory and is swiftly turned into a cradle for puppets, a turtle shell, a drum, a cooking pot, a ship, or a hill with coves giving shelter to animals… the imagination of children knows no limits…

Invented by child development experts. For ages 2 to 7.

Help improve your child’s balance and coordination skills with YBikes!

YBIKE

These cool balance and coordination bikes for kids are designed to help improve motor skills. YBIKE’s are engineered for safety by using a tough injection molded construction, which eliminates weak points and offers more design freedom, hence the sleeker curves and smooth, superior finish. When it comes to kids, safety is the main concern. For this reason the front wheel is considerably further forward, affording a bigger turning circle, which reduces the risk of falling over the front when turning. The back wheel is also covered to stop children from riding over their feet. The YBIKE body is designed for better clearance of obstacles and the larger wheels produce a safer ride on uneven surfaces. The YBIKE was awarded the prestigious Oppenheim Toy of the Year award for 2010. Comes in orange, blue, green and pink.

YBIKE Balance Bike - Pink

YBIKE EXTREME

A great new balance bike for kids. Constructed of a lightweight aluminum body with injection molded plastic front fork and large rubber tires, the YBIKE Extreme is a great first bicycle for toddlers. Already a massive success in Europe, balance bikes are quickly becoming a worldwide trend. Tests have shown that the use of balancing aids such as training wheels actually stunt the gross motor skill development of a young child. The YBIKE Extreme is tough, easy to use, and easy to assemble. 9” rubber tires allow for high ground clearance and a fast smooth ride. Comes in orange or pink.

Pewi Walking Buddy & Ride-on

Pewi is a new innovative “Walking Buddy/Ride-on for the toddler market”. Beginning with children as young as 9 months, Pewi is the coolest, sleekest walker around. However, unlike traditional Walkers on the market where the child is typically sitting in the walker, the Pewi actually enhances body and space awareness. In a traditional walker a child does not learn to fall as he or she typically just sits or hangs in the unit. With the Pewi, the Child stands freely in front of Pewi using it only as an aid. They can easily let go of Pewi and sit on the ground or knock other items themselves. This freedom of movement at a young age has proven to stimulate body in space awareness, a key for balance and motor skill development. Comes in red, pink and blue.
