Babies love buckles!

I discovered this universal truth playing on the floor with my niece. Surrounded by "stimulating" developmental toys, she made a bee-line for the buckle on her diaper bag. 

Taking the hint, my mom and I pulled out the old sewing machine and made her a buckle toy, a tubular blue cat with five different buckles strapped across the tummy. At eighteen months we introduced her to an early version of "BuckleyCat." She was captivated by the visual, and manipulative nature of the buckles, by the wonderful "click", by the sense of accomplishment. 

We gave Buckley prototypes to the children of friends, and they, too, were captivated. We had made a discovery: Babies love buckles! BuckleyCat was soon followed by Buckley buddies in various shapes, sizes, and colors. BuckleyBoo was born! 

Each Buckley buddy is at once a cuddly critter and an absorbing challenge. And as 'BuckleyBoo' is the most irresistibly bouncy word in the language, the very word leads to all kinds of giggly chitchat, as well as to stories, rhymes, and songs. 

BuckleyBoo is that kind of toy.
