Baby Unplugged: Box

“Gifts are nice—shoes, toys, and dolls. Boxes are the best of all!”

No matter the gift, it’s what kids want to play with. A celebration of the endless possibility they discover in this unplugged classic. Sure to inspire the next generation of architects, artists, scientists, and reduce-reuse-recyclers.

From the Baby Unplugged™ series, winner of a Mom's Choice Awards Gold Medal and Creative Child Magazine Book of the Year! Celebrating icons of childhood, rooted in how developing brains work. Kids need and learn best through real experiences, real people, and exploring the real world. Technology can wait. Unplug, tune in, and have fun!



“Both boys and girls will get a kick out of the visual impact of Box, a paean to the wonders of the boxes in which gifts are packed… These are clever uses of boxes, and the whole concept of the book is clever as well: it is part of a series called 'Baby Unplugged,' intended to provide real-experience-based ideas to counterbalance all the electronics and other technology in so many families’ everyday lives.”
