With all my son’s toys quickly multiplying in our house, I began the search of finding the perfect toy box. I was amazed to find so many didn’t have lids, and others were just made so poorly. I wanted something fun, practical, and one that could grow with my son. That is when I found the All Star Sports Bench Seat from Levels of Discovery. It fit all of my criteria, and even more. With this bench I have learned to expect the unexpected!
The founder of Levels of Discovery, Jeff Hutsell, had a background in the development of emotion-based products for Hallmark, The Franklin Mint and Enesco. With the knowledge he decided thahe wanted to bring fun and innovative children’s products to the marketplace that are truly something special. In my opinion that is exactly what he did with Levels of Discovery.
Here’s how he describes the products in his own words:
Anyone can produce a product that is exactly what it appears to be. I want to take that a step further and create products that allow children to discover the “unexpected”! Let me use an example from our Rock A BuddiesTM product line to show you what I mean. Our award-winning Schoolhouse Rocker has a fun “school” theme with primary colors, apple finials and movable abacus beads to help little ones learn counting and colors. Take another look and you’ll find a flip-up desk (great for reading and writing) and an armrest pencil box with a sliding lid. Pull the chalk on the seat and the music box plays the “ABC Song!”. Look again, and you’ll find an understamp beneath the seat that can be “personalized” with the child’s name, the name of the gift-giver and the special occasion when the chair was received. I think you get the idea.
That is one of my favorite parts of the All Star Sports Bench Seat. It has a real chalkboard seat back, with spinning balls! My son can’t keep score yet, but he certainly loves to stand on the bench and spin the balls around. I know a lot of toy box’s don’t have lids to prevent children from smashing their fingers, but I think a closed lid looks much cleaner. This box has a slow-closing metal safety hinge which helps prevent your child from slamming their fingers. There are a lot of other items in the All Star Sports Collection including a growth chart, mini rocker, book case, rocker and table and stool set. All would make a great addition to your child’s bedroom or playroom.
Levels of Discovery takes that extra step in creating their products. They take average items and make them extraordinary. That my friends is important when creating items for children. That is why I find their products so exciting. I love our new toy box, and it makes a great new addition in our home.
Now here is your opportunity to win this spectacular toy box! The people at Levels of Discovery will be giving one lucky reader their very own All Star Sports Bench Sea! (a $189 value!) This giveaway will run until Monday December 19th.
