Imagination Box Company (Barn, Cottage, Schoolhouse)

Have you ever noticed how kids tend to want to play with the box more than the toy? Imagination Box Company noticed and did something about it!

Imagination Box Company has several different box toys for your kids to play with--a barn, a cottage, and even a schoolhouse, to name a few. These ingenious "boxes" are made from all non-toxic, post-consumer materials that are recyclable. Each easy-to-assemble box is double walled corrugated board that is printed inside and out and shaped as its name indicates--like a barn, cottage, schoolhouse, etc.--so that children can decorate them the way they want. Each "box" comes with a starter set of 8 non-toxic washable watercolor markers, or you can use your own markers or even paint. The barn measures 24"W x 21"D x 15"T. The cottage dimensions are 26 1/4"W x 20 3/4"L x 18"T. The schoolhouse is 16 1/2"W x 13 1/2"L x 12 1/2" T. These toys are made in America under American supervision, which is a very important fact considering all the toys recalled from other countries. Prices range from $24.95 for the schoolhouse up to $29.99 for the barn.

You may be wondering why this great "toy" would be reviewed by a homeschool magazine. This product is a perfect item to have around to give the younger set something to do while mom is teaching the older children. It is always nice to have something to take out only at school time, and this item fits the bill perfectly. Gone are the days of mind-numbing videos; give them a "box" from the Imagination Box Company and let them decorate and imagine for hours. When school time is over, this box folds back up and can be put away. Just don't be too shocked when your little ones are begging for "school time" too!
