A special thanks to BuyBabyDeals.com for providing me with an amazing free book to review that my children can not destroy!
What are the Indestructables Books all about?
“Indestructibles are printed on a synthetic material made from flashspun high-density polyethylene fibers (getting technical here, we know). It feels like paper, but liquid water cannot pass through it and it is very difficult to tearf”
A few important features:
- tear-resistant : made of ultra-durable tightwoven material
- waterproof: can be chewed on, sucked on, and washed
- safe for baby – meets ASTM safety standards
- BPA and phthalate-free
I remember, during the months my little ones were teething, they always preferred to chew away at books to help soothe their soar gums. I have had to throw away many books that ultimately became their favorite “teething toys.” My first child was a lover of books and treated them delitcally from a very young age. Then came baby number two, my destructive and energetic son that would rather tear away the pages and make paper airplanes than read it. We quickly learned that any book with paper pages had to be put up high on the books shelf and never left alone with him! There are still the board books that we would keep out for him, but any mother of a destructive toddler will tell you that they can still manage to dismantle those as well. So when I discovered that there was a book out there that was chew proof, tear proof and 100% washable, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! Was there really a book out there that my son could not destroy? I admit that I was a little in disbelief and predicted that my son would find the weak spot of this book and quickly destroy it! But to my surprise, there was nothing he could do that caused permanent damage to the book. I was shocked and amazed… relieved that I could finally allow him to explore a book without the worry of it ending up in a dozen pieces. This book is perfect and will undoubtedly last for many years to come!
