What do you do with a Bilibo?!?


Five or six years ago my Mom bought 2 Bilibos for my classroom.  They are the kind of toy she loved to buy for my children when they were little - a simple toy that inspires creativity and  movement.  Today I took pictures of the many things the kids were doing with our Bilibos (we have 2 more in our room this month thanks to our toy sharing).


They can be a tricky balance beam.

The kids also love to just balance on one (and be taller).

They can hold a dog (or doll) when you are reading to it. 
They can be used for "scootching" across the floor
(or for scootching races:)


They make a cool mask.

They can be use for collecting cars.


They can show how centrical force works if you spin them when they are filled with cars.
Sometimes the cars even go flying out which is extra cool!

They can also be used to spin kids...this is probably how they are most frequently used.


The Bilibo is relatively expensive - almost $30 a piece.  However, they are virtually indestructible and  have provided hours of fun the kids in my class each year.  I also like them because  I think of my Mom whenever I see the kids enjoying the Bilibos.

  1. I saw one of these at a shopping mall once and was tempted to buy one, but I didn't. I wish I had gotten one or more now.

    1. I thought they were too expensive when I first saw them but I'm really glad my Mom was a sucker for that kind of toy.

  2. I've never seen such a thing. I can see why the kids love them.
