sharing our favorite toys | holiday B. toys shareaway | little free radical

It seems that every festive occasion in our family involves B. toys! At my baby shower, Sophie got Elemenosqueeze, Dr. Doctor, and Zany Zoo - before she was even born! Poppitoppy joined our home soon after and immediately became one of her favorite toys!

Last Christmas at our house was a very B. toys Christmas. Under our tree sat an Alphaberry, an orange Hellophone, red Funkeys, Snug Bugs, Fish & Splish, and Whacky Ball.  And of course we've gotten a few new B. toys in the past year including a Critter Clinic for her 1st birthday,  Sugar Chute instead of an Easter Basket, and for random special days we got Hugs :) Links, Times Square, A-Maze Loopty Loo, H2 Woah! 

It's so hard to pick our VERY favorite toy! but Poppitoppy is right at the top of our list!!! - right up there, to the point that Sophie dressed as Poppitoppy for Halloween!

Of course when a company makes a very awesome toy, sometimes you end up with duplicates - or in our case triplcates! Yes, we managed to receive 3 Poppitoppy toys! While Sophie was excited to see Poppitoppy #2 - and be able to carry one in each hand and press them at the very same time we decided to save the extras to SHARE with people who didn't have their very own Poppitoppy! :)

Sharing Poppitoppy #2 with our clinic: After a visit to our "Family Practice Clinic" when my bored one-year-old found a drawer of plastic speculums that she felt made perfect drum sticks for the metal biohazard trashcan  (the result of what happens since the clinic didn't have Parum Pum Pum for making music), we decided Poppitoppy #2 looked like an awesome clinic toy to entertain kids while waiting for exams or to distract from the pain of getting a shot. There are no little pieces that can get lost, and it's easy to clean between small patients!

Sharing Poppitoppy #3 (and #4) with YOU!!!: Of course we still have one more Poppitoppy toy we still need to share! When we told our friends at B. toys that we'd love to share our extra toy, they loved the idea - to the point that they wanted to share a Poppitoppy too! So here is what we are going to do:

  7. My favorite children's charity is Birth Choice. It provides help for those women who have found themselves in trouble. Of course, this charity is pro-life but is also there for those who have chosen to have an abortion. They can always use donations such as toys for children.

    Thank you,

  8. My favorite childhood toy is a doll named Cynthia. My grandmother had given this bigger doll to my cousin for Christmas. Being the brat that she was, she threw it and said that she didn't want it. I asked my cousin if I could have it, and she said that I could. This way I ended up with two dolls for Christmas.

    Thank you,

  15. My favorite charity is St. Jude's Children Research Hospital as well as Make-A-Wish Foundation. Both are very important to me and I've contributed as much as I can in the past to both of these great organizations.

    Having grown up in Armenia, I didn't have the opportunity to play with many sophisticated toys, but I did have a few small baby dolls which I loved to "feed" and dress up.

  23. St.Jude, My son does the mathathon every year for them and we donate on a regular basis. It's our favorite because my grandmother who passed when I was 10 used to love donating to them and it was her favorite, so we are continuing her legacy by supporting them, they do so much for the kids and their families.

  24. I do not remember the name of the doll, but it was the very first doll I remember owning. You could put discs in her back and she would sing "I Like To Teach The World To Sing" in different languages. I didn't have many toys growing up, so this doll was very special to me :)

  32. My favorite charity is Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Fox Valley. They never turn children away for their parents inability to pay. When my son was born premature this January, they were there and supportive every step of the way, when they found out that we were struggling financially they told us not to worry that everything would be taken care of. Everyone there is so amazing and they work so hard. I appreciate everything they have done for our family and countless others.

  33. I have two favorite childhood toys. One is a stuffed pink dog, his name is Pinky, he belonged to my mother and my big brother and was passed down to me. The other is a wind up unicorn named Uni, and she always made me feel better when I was down just by playing her song. It was the first toy my mother bought for me to play with. I still have them both and they sit in a shelf in my room(and my husband doesn't mind!)

  45. My favorite charity is the readiness center here in Benton Harbor Michigan. It is a preschool parenting program that helps parents lean better parenting skills while the children are learning. A parent must always be there with the child which is nice because it teaches the parent that their time with their child is important . It also teaches the parent how to make healthy meals and how to sew. It is a great charity ran by nuns who employ people from around the area that need help.

  47. My favorite childhood toy was my cabbage patch doll, Mable. We had matching nightgowns and went everywhere together. I just recently gave her to my son since he enjoys playing with his cousin's dolls. He loves on her and carries her around, it is so cute!
