BeginAgain- Toy Review and Giveaway


About BeginAgain:
Welcome to the BeginAgain workshop! This is the place where we tell you all about us. To start, we are an imaginative toy company located in Fort Collins, Colorado.
BeginAgain was founded on the principles, ideas, and inventions of Benjamin Barlowe, an early 20th century inventor from Fort Collins. Ben's fantastic tales and astute observations of his grandchildren, Zadie and Fuller, are the inspiration behind our products. His archive overflows with tinkered toys, playful mechanisms, and incredible stories filled with nostalgia, history, and lessons on how things used to be.
Created by toymakers David Bowen and Chris Clemmer–two of the co-founders of Sprig Toys–BeginAgain is focused on thoughtful product design and imaginative storytelling for today's kids. It is our goal to inspire children with stories of invention, adventure, and good old-fashioned fun. BeginAgain toys teach through play and nurture the development of the whole child.
Thanks for stopping by the workshop.




Thank-you BeginAgain for sending me the Lemonade  Set to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine. 

The Lemonade Set retails on BeginAgain site for $15.  It is made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic!!  The toy serves 4 and is a great addition to any play kitchen to add to the pretend play aspect.  A compact nesting design allows for easy clean up and storage.  Everything included: Lemonade style pitcher with lid, 4 serving cups and saucers, 1 mixing spoon, and 1 ice tray. 

This product was included in the toys for Writers.  "When your child becomes "The Writer" they create characters and the world they play in.  Toys for "The Writer" offer the tools to encourage this imagination and storytelling.  "The Writer" toys focus on social skills and role-playing to help develop a child's verbal communication and to build a sense of the world they live in. Other categories of toys include: Artist, Writer, Inventor, Sportster, and Hero. 

Immediately after I set this toy out my son poured me a glass of lemonade and brought it to me.  It was a joy to watch him use his imagination.  My daughter also has had a lot of fun playing with this set.  She had a few lemonade stands last year so she was pretending to have one again.  The fact that this product is made in the USA and is 100% recycled makes me THRILLED!!  BeginAgain truly is a great American company and I hope when you start your birthday or Christmas shopping you will head over to their site and order from them.  The prices are very reasonable, as the Lemonade set is only $15.00!  There are several other toys to choose from that is sure to please your son or daughter.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
