Exo BonzI recently started using a star chart to encourage good behavior from my boys. I think star charts are great because they remind you to reward your kids for good behavior, rather than simply punishing them for being bad. (More about my star chart later!)

Anyway, my boys finally reached the first goal and so it was time to do some rewarding.  I knew the first gift had to be good — something to really drive home the message (not every gift will be this big). So I bought them each a set of Bonz, and it is the coolest gift ever!

The Bonz construction kits from Curious Toys include loads of different parts and pieces, all connectible and interchangeable to allow your kids to create their own funny-looking creatures.  There’s a Sea Bonz kit (sea creatures), a Dragon Bonz kit (dragons), an Exo Bonz kit (bugs), and many others.  They feature special connectors, which pivot 180° to allow the creatures to pose, bend and move. It’s sort of like Legos, but way cooler!

All the sets interconnect with each other, so you can create a world of crazy creatures. You’ll want to collect them all!

Available from Elias & Grace here in London, or from our bookstore (US and UK).
