Baby Bundles: Things That Go

For an overview of the Baby Bundles early literacy kits, please visit the original post. The cost listed is the list price of each item, regardless of whether or not we got it on sale/discount. The activity sheets amount was calculated by cost of binder clip + lamination sheets.

Itemized List

  • Tote Bag ($6.89) — 4Imprint
  • Cars Go by Steve Light ($9.99) — Baker & Taylor
  • Zoom, Zoom, Baby! by Karen Katz ($6.99) — Baker & Taylor
  • Melissa and Doug Pull-Back Vehicles ($24.99) — Amazon
  • Activity Sheets ($2.55) — created in-house

Total Cost: $51.41

Confession time: I actually started with toys while I was creating Baby Bundles. Since baby/toddler toys are a relatively small market compared with children’s toys, it seemed like I should get a list of toys that were appropriate for circulation before I picked out themes. Luckily, the toys lent themselves to natural themes and I still have a list of toys that I may use for future kits!

Ahhhhh, I love these pull-back vehicles. They are machine-washable (!!) and kids just absolutely adore them. I just found out that Melissa and Doug also have these in construction vehicles and you can bet that those were added to my list of new toys for new Baby Bundles.

Cars Go and all of the Steve Light transportation books are fantastic board books. But their irregular shape doesn’t always work for board book collections. It was a perfect fit to include in our Baby Bundle though and it will be read more often than the ones we have on oversized display. And you cannot go wrong with Karen Katz, so Zoom, Baby, Zoom was perfect.

It’s been ten months since the Baby Bundles debuted and this Bundle has circulated seventeen times.

    These look fun! Can you tell me more about how you decided on the themes? How many of these do you have circulating in your library? What sort of information is included in the kit?
