Parents Busy Bug Count & Match Dominoes review and giveaway (ENDED)

UPDATE: And the winner is… #20, Ashley LeMieux. Congratulations, Ashley! Thank you to everyone who entered! Check out my sidebar to try your luck at my other active giveaways.

It’s finally summer, and for many families that means travel! It can be a challenge keeping young kids happy and occupied on a long trip when it’s not practical to bring along their favorite toys. The Parents line from Manhattan Toy offers some great travel-size options to keep tots busy without taking up valuable packing space.

I received a set of their Busy Bug Count & Match Dominoes for Mr. Boy to review. Recommended for ages 3 and up, these colorful wood dominoes can teach a variety of skills like counting and identifying numbers, matching, identifying bugs, naming colors, and taking turns. These are all skills that Mr. Boy has been very interested in mastering lately, so these dominoes were a perfect match for him.

I love to see packaging that serves more than one function and isn’t meant to be thrown away. The rope handle makes the wooden box easy to carry. When empty, the sliding mesh-covered top makes it an ideal temporary habitat for the bugs or other critters that your little explorer might find on a camping trip or in the back yard.

This dominoes set is a great addition to the other classic wooden toys we love. It retails for $15 on the Manhattan Toy website.

Manhattan Toy makes all kinds of unique, quality toys for kids. You can shop online through their website, or find them at a variety of specialty retailers. Now through August 31st get free shipping on any order from with promo code TRAVELTOY
