BuckleyBoo is a growing collection of stuffed toys co-created by a child psychologist and grandma!
BuckleyBoos encourage cognitive development through multi-stage learning. What this means is that from the ages of 15 months to 4 years your child will embark on a developmental journey where each mastered task serves as a springboard for the next level of learning.
Stage 1: Matching
Children first learn to visually scan and match the brightly patterned ribbons- polka dot to polka dot, stripe to stripe.
Stage 2: Buckling
At eighteen months, children are ready to buckle, but they cannot yet unbuckle, which makes BuckleyBoo, for a time, a toy to be shared between parent and child. At this stage, the child will likely leave all the other buckles in their environment alone; now they have their own buckles with which to play.
Stage 3: Unbuckling
At three years, children have both the physical strength and the problem solving skills to buckle and unbuckle and they will happily do for hours on end. Children will also begin to integrate their lovable pal into their world of imaginative play.
These days, my niece, age three, likes to play mommy as she buckles and unbuckles: “You have to put on your coat, BuckleyCat. Let me buckle you! Hold still, you silly. There! Now you’re warm and cozy!”
