PLAY Toy Blog
A Bowl. A Monkey. And A Special Idea.

Children have an indefatigable talent for finding unusual uses for their toys or, more inconveniently, finding interesting new uses for your property – mostly at the exact same time that you need it.

If you have given a present and found that the kids play more with the box or, like me, have despaired at spending Christmas Day watching the children use the tubes from the tinfoil and the wrapping paper as swords, whilst ignoring all their carefully selected, non-violent toys, the perfect present has arrived. Say hello to Bilibo.

Tortoise shell and sand toy, swing and spinner, cradle for dolls and a shell to build with in the snow – Bilibo is all this and much more. So what exactly is a Bilibo? Well one clue is the fact that it does not come with an instruction manual. Kids can do what they like with it!

Says Alex Hochstrasser, Swiss inventor and designer of Bilibo, “When I introduced the prototypes at the kindergarten of my hometown the little ones were astonished at first. But then a boy sat down in Bilibo and started spinning, a girl turned Bilibo around and tried to balance on him – after that you just could not stop them any more.”

This shell is made of high density polyethylene which is shock-resistant, weather-proof, food safe, completely recyclable and comes in six bright colors. Bilibo is big enough that kids of different ages can sit in it comfortably. All this, and friendly too -Bilibo has two holes at the side which look like eyes and give the appearance of a smiling face on the shell.

    This toy, bilibo, is for older children, not for my granddaughter who is only 15 months. I could not resist the idea, and bought two. Will add this to my treasure chest of goodies.

    The kids have SO much fun with this toy - so much in fact that they each had to have their own. I kept thinking that one was enough, but I've given up after 2 months. Now they're both using it all the time and have a blast together.

    My daughter just got this as a gift 2 days ago at her birthday party and she is enjoying wobbling in it. I think she will play with it more and more.

    I was more than pleased with this toy! The quality is top notch, and the size was larger than I was expecting. We have six children, and as you can imagine we have every toy imaginable. I wanted something "out of the box" for our three year old daughter, and definitely got what I was looking for! EVERY child in our home, ages from 1-11 are obsessed with this toy. As a matter of fact, we have already promised our 5 year old son one of his own for his birthday. The children have found about a dozen ways to play with this, and I see dozens more in their future. Thanks for developing such creative toys!
