BuckleyBoo is a growing collection of award-winning developmental stuffed toys co-created by a child psychologist and grandma that encourage cognitive development and sequential learning through matching, buckling and unbuckling. Plus BuckleyBoos are adorable and cuddly and are sure to become your little one’s new favorite friend.
From the age of 18 months to four-years-old, children will embark on a developmental journey with BuckleyBoo where each mastered task serves as a springboard for the next level of learning:
- Stage 1: Matching – Children first learn to visually scan and match the brightly patterned ribbons on their BuckleyBoo – polka dot to polka dot, stripe to stripe.
- Stage 2: Buckling – At eighteen months, children are ready to buckle, but they cannot yet unbuckle, which makes BuckleyBoo, for a time, a toy to be shared between parent and child. At this stage, the child will likely leave all the other buckles in their environment alone; now they have their own buckles with which to play.
- Stage 3: Unbuckling – At three years, children have both the physical strength and the problem solving skills to buckle and unbuckle and they will happily do for hours on end. Children will also begin to integrate their lovable pal into their world of imaginative play.
The 17” BuckleyPanda retails for $29.99 and the 12” for $19.99 and is available online at www.BuckleyBoo.com as well as specialty toy, education and gift stores (see the website for all product pricing and list of local retailers). Other BuckleyBoo animals include a lion, monkey, dog, bunny, bear and more.
