Ebeanstalk Alex Color & Cuddle Washable Bear Review

Looking for toys for your kids can be overwhelming! Ebeanstalk is a toy website that can help you sort through the madness. They have a team of moms that have picked out the some of the best to provide great baby toys, toys for 1 year olds, toys for 2 year olds, and toys for all other ages! Ebeanstalk also has a panel of child experts that have matched each toy to the specific age of your child, so you know that your child is getting the most out of playtime!

I received the Alex Color & Cuddle Washable Bear from Ebeanstalk to test and review. This toy is a soft bear that can be drawn on with markers, washed and drawn on again. It has preprinted patterns to color in and includes four washable markers with easy washing instructions.

I see the charm in a toy that also can be colored on to a child, but be warned that you should make sure that your child is old enough to understand that other toys or items should not be colored on unless specifically designed to be colored on. I would also recommend supervision for younger kids with this toy so they will not draw on other things with the markers. Although not quite a blank canvas because of the preprinted designs this bear is still a lot of fun to doodle on and it helps fuel creativity and imagination. The colors of the markers weren't really as bright as the pictures, but still worked well for coloring with on the bear. Because the bear is washable, your child will enjoy decorating the bear over and over again. It also can be a learning tool about colors and shapes. My daughter Teela had a lot of fun coloring this bear with the help and supervision of her older brother Jaedan and I. She loved how there were so many different ways to color it and after it was washed it was ready to color all over again.

DISCLOSURE/DISCLAIMER: Thanks to Ebeanstalk for sending me an Alex Color & Cuddle Washable Bear and information about the toy for free. My thoughts are mine and my family's own opinion and have not been altered by anyone else. I did not receive any other compensation for doing this review.
