BeginAgain Toys 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 their 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.
I was recently asked to choose something from BeginAgain Toys to review and after browsing the selection I chose the Dinosaur A to Z Puzzle. I was very impressed when I received it and this is so much more than a puzzle. The pieces have the upper case letters on one side and the lower case on the other and only fit one way. Given this a child must be thinking and also can follow along on the picture when fitting the puzzle together. My three-year old and five-year old had a great time playing with this puzzle and when together it can even be moved a bit in the sturdy wood tray to bend the neck or legs. This colorful puzzle and smooth chunky pieces is just beautiful and very well crafted. This heirloom quality puzzle can be passed down for generations.
