Rip Proof. Chew Proof. 100% Washable.
Indestructibles are books built for the way babies “read”: with their hands and mouths. Chew-proof, rip-proof, and drool-proof, they’re printed on a unique 100% nontoxic, paperlike material that holds up to anything babies can throw at it—gumming, spilling, dragging across the floor. Indestructibles are the little books that could. And if they get dirty, just wash them off. Beloved by babies and their parents, Indestructibles were invented by Amy Pixton, a mother of triplets, after bits of traditional board books found their way into her babies' mouths.
Indestructibles have something unique to offer babies at all their developmental stages between 0 and 2, whether it is a tactile experience, a visual experience, a picture-identifying experience, or a storytelling experience. Because they have few words, your conversation can change as your baby develops, understands, and interacts with you more and more. Here are some examples of ways a baby might use an Indestructible at different developmental stages (these are just examples. All babies differ, of course):
- 0 months: Baby enjoys hearing your voice and seeing you turn colorful pages.
- 4 months: Baby reaches out and touches the book with her own hands.
- 6 months: Baby chews and explores the books with his own mouth.
- 9 months: Baby starts learning to turn pages by herself.
- 12 months: Baby starts to identify the objects in the pictures and soon says their names.
- 18 months: Baby talks about what a character is doing in the picture.
- 2 years: Baby and parent or caregiver tell stories about what might be happening in the book.
