eeBoo Sidewalk Chalk and Little Lamb Corduroy Bag Review by Kate Kessler

170 West 74th Street
New York, NY 10023

I absolutely love this company. I just "happened" onto this company years ago when my children were still little and I bought their Life on Earth Matching Game. Full-color sturdy squares of animals they got to match and memorize. They loved it and I loved that it didn't get destroyed overnight! When I discover a company like this, I remember it. They just keep producing the nicest quality products over and over and what I am reviewing today is no exception. Their Sidewalk Chalk set come complete with the four pieces of colored chalk and a booklet of games to use to play with it. Now my youngest is nine and she loves drawing--all over and in any way. She immediately went outside and got to work. I love the cities she creates and the scooter "streets" and all manner of houses and stores. She also happened to use the booklet and played some games! Also included is a gold coin to use in the games. Fun!

The Little Lamb Corduroy Bag was just what my youngest one was looking for. She wanted a purse like her big sisters, but she didn't want a leather "older girl" purse quite yet. This was the perfect fit. It is a nicely sized mustard yellow bag that holds all her treasures, is well-made, and colorfully designed with embroidered trees, house, birds, and of course, lambs. The striped shoulder strap is large enough to cross her front so it doesn't slip off yet isn't too long to be cumbersome. Just between you and me, I would have liked one for me!

Eeboo has such a wonderful selection of all sorts of crafts, art projects, sketch books, games, and even colorful giant maps of the world and the USA. I have yet to see a product from them that isn't of the highest quality. If you don't know about, you will want to check them out!
