Workman Publishing Indestructibles Books Review and Giveaway


I often comment on how my little guy can be a bit rowdy and free spirited. Well he likes to take out a lot of his energy on his books. He throws them, bites them, stands on them and hits them with his other toys. We have lost a few good board books from chewing and ripping. After reading  "Indestructibles are 100% baby-proof: chew-proof, drool-proof, and rip-proof. Indestructibles not only will not tear or turn gummy with teething, but they are also completely washable." from the Workman Publishing website I knew we had to try them. We reviewed the books Mama and Baby and Jungle Rumble.   If I could find a book I could let me son go wild on and he would like it I would be a happy mom! When they arrived I was amazed by the deep colors on the pages. He definitely first off tried to bite the books, he pulled and grunted but he could not rip them. I was stunned, he was too and a bit mad he couldn't destroy it. He did climb up on my lap and look at the books with me and when he wrestled to get the book I could easy let him have it knowing he couldn't eat it. My favorite book of the two was the Mama and Baby. I loved pointing to my son who is the mommy and who is the baby in each of the pictures. We did put them in the dishwasher after they were covered in sweet potatoes and they were good as new!



The only thing I would change about the books would be for them to be a little thicker. Most kids I am sure would be fine but my son was throwing them around wildly and I was a little worried about him getting the edge of the book on his eye. I know all books have this worry by default I just thought if it was a tad thicker I would be able to really let him go wild with them. Overall I really enjoyed that he could bite them and pull on them with out the worry he would destroy them.
