Our website would not be here––would not B. at all!––without the love and attention of a whole band of people.
You know when you meet a new friend and within weeks you feel like you’ve known each other for “years”? That’s how it has been with the months (again, feels like years) of the creation of this website.
The teamwork has been remarkable. Seamless.
The dream. The vision. The reality.
All come to life before our eyes. For your eyes.
The paper waves in the Mountain world are hand-cut from the press-proofs of the Wheeee-mote Control car boxes. The falling snowflakes are beads from Pop-Arty! The coral reef in the Ocean was built, in part, by my daughter’s hand. Toy photos don’t just sit there in look-at-me fashion. They allow you to play with the toys as if you held them in hand. The fabulous children’s quotes aren’t just for you to read. They are rendered painterly enough to form a gallery. And so they serve as grand reminders to cherish your own kids’ wisdom by creating (and sharing) your own.
Every rotating base has been hand painted. Origami animals hand folded. Every world first hand sketched. Every font and color and hand cut cardboard sign touched. By human hands the old fashioned way, not just digitally.
I guess, for me, therein lies the magic of our site: a marriage of the most current technology with the most classical art forms.
Created in the only way that spawns greatness. With individual commitment to a team effort. Coming together to go far and...
Please take your time exploring every inch of our B. worlds.
Smile, laugh and sigh as you take in the brilliance of children in the B. quote gallery. And share some wisdom from your own kids.
Play with our toys and share them with your friends. (Always a good idea.)
Read our story and learn why we are so committed to the earth. To Free The Children. To the possibilities that arise when kids are allowed to just B. themselves.
We hope you’ll come back often and help the B. story grow, but for now join us at the virtual Meowsic Cantina on the Island for a champagne toast to our new site!
