Bilibo | Blue
Multi-award winning Bilibo in Blue
Bilibo has won plenty of awards, including US Pre-school Toy of the Year 2010 and Toy of the Year - UK Good Toy Awards 2006.
And The Independent rated it as one of the Top 50 Great Ideas of the 21st Century.
Bilibo is a single, simple, beautifully shaped, fabulously coloured piece of extremely hard-wearing plastic, just waiting for a child to turn it into a seat. Or a turtle shell. Or a doll's bed. Or fill it with sand or water. Or roll around in it.
Or (with two) make a face!
No batteries, no plugs, no screen, and no instructions.
"The Bilibo has been, hands down, our most popular and thought-provoking toy of the year."
— Kids on Third Street
Alex Hochstrasse, Bilibo's designer, worked with childhood development experts and has a fresh approach to toy design, creating objects that come to life through the imagination of children. "There's a need for well-designed toys which don't just entertain kids on a superficial level but engage them both physically and mentally. I think with Bilibo I was fortunate to create a simple piece of plastic that actually seems to have something like a soul."
"It's the most simple and elegant open-ended toy we've ever seen."
