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 Eight 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.

    Great Gift
    Posted 1/3/2015

    Bought this for Christmas. We tied a rope to it and used it as a sled. Spinning on the wood floors and using it as a "cave or mountain" with small toy figures have kept my kiddo busy for extended periods of time.

    Hesitant fun
    Posted 12/30/2014 by Ardith M. Hale

    My two year old granddaughter was given this toy. So far she hasn't shown a lot of interest but with her older brother & cousins to help her explore the possibilities I expect that to change. She has sat in it & put her baby doll in it. The color is bright. The shape intriguing. It's very sturdy & we hope to get years of fun out of it

    Purchased for 23 month old girl
    Posted 12/30/2014

    This gift was opened on Christmas along with other gifts. She began play by putting her brand new crayons into the Bilibo one by one. I then helped her sit in it and the wobbliness scared her a bit. I adjusted the Bilibo so her legs were on either side of one of the three humps ( like the photo above) to give her a bit more stability and she liked being spun around gently. I put a doll and blanket inside and then tied a ribbon through the two holes and demonstrated that it could be pulled. She enjoyed pulling it. Then Christmas was over and she took the Bilibo to her house.

    imaginative and fun
    Posted 12/22/2014 by Carmen Proulx

    I got this for my two-year-old granddaughter and she opened it today. She was delighted! I bought the orange one because it would be her preference. She immediately started to use it as a little stool to sit on, then discovered that she could sit IN it. I showed her how she could be a turtle with it on her back and she found the 2 'eye' holes, using it as a big helmet. She loaded the Bilibo up with toy blocks then rotated them around and around and it made her giggle. Today was her first day with it but I can see her imagination going to work on this.
