Baby Books that are Baby Proof!

I’ve been slowly going through all of our stored baby stuff trying to figure out what I can reuse for baby #3. Amazingly, even after two kids, most of the clothes, blankets and toys are still in good shape. The little baby books though…they are shameful!

After going through two babies, who became toddlers and, unbeknownst to me, have moved on to being preschoolers, most of the books lining our little bookshelf are missing covers and pages. And those books that managed to keep their pages in tact have an array of little teeth marks outlining each page.

So, all you parents out there, how do you keep those baby books looking nice (or at least readable) through the destructive and teething baby years?

Well, Indestructibles might just have the answer so many of us are looking for!


Indestructibles, founded by a mother of triplets, are books designed with your baby in mind! The paperlike material of these books cannot be ripped, torn or punctured by your little pre-reader and they are 100% safe and nontoxic! Your baby can hold, pull, chew, bend, and drool all over this book and, if the book starts to get a little messy, simply throw the book into the washing machine or dish washer! That’s right….these books are washing machine and dishwasher safe!!!


While you are loving how baby-resistant these books are, your baby is going to love how bright and colorful they are! Each book features amazing and vibrant illustrations that are sure to keep your baby entertained. What’s missing from the books? Words! The words are specifically left out of the books so the parent can make up the story as they read to baby!

Indestructibles are available in nine different titles:

  • Wiggle! March!
  • Creep! Crawl!
  • Flutter! Fly!
  • Plip-Plop Pond!
  • Jungle Rumble!
  • Mama and Baby!
  • Mary Had a Little Lamb
  • Hey Diddle Diddle
  • Humpty Dumpty
  • Each 7 inch by 7 inch book retails for $4.95 ($5.95 Can.) and are available wherever books are sold or through Workman Publishing.

    While I haven’t put our Indestructibles book in the hands of a baby yet, it has been “tested” by my less-than-gentle toddler and preschooler! So far, these books are amazingly tough!! I am so excited to stock up on more Indestructibles for baby #3! They are perfect not only at home but also to keep in my purse or diaper bag!!! These books also make great baby shower gifts and, if you already have a little one at home or are expecting one soon, the Indestructibles are amazing stocking stuffers!!!

    We’d love to put some of these amazing books on your baby’s bookshelf so we are giving away THREE Indestructibles to one lucky reader! The winner will get their choice from the nine titles now available (see list above).

      If my grandson is going to be anythink like his Daddy, he needs these books. I teach at a high school and I am a firm believer that reading is very importantt. You need to start reading to babies at a very young age, and when they get older it will help them achieve better in school. Great gift!!

    2. Debby Morgan says

      I can’t believe you can actually wash these books in the dishwasher. How awesome and clean since my grandson would put it in his mouth in a New York second. Hope he will be receiving these for Christmas. Thanks Ladies

      Everything my baby gets goes in her mouth, it would be nice to get her books that didnt get destroyed in minutes.

    4. says

      What a clever idea! We love books and we’re always making sure our kids are really careful with them. It would be nice to leave to have some I wouldn’t have to worry about lol!

    5. Debra Morgan says

      My older son had these types of books and they are wonderful. My new 4 month old grandson would love them. Thanks ladies!!

    6. says

      I’ve not been so great about reading to son #2 and now that he’s grabbing everything he hasn’t learned to appreciate books! These would help I’m sure!

    7. Debby Morgan says

      These are the only books that you can let little ones play with and not worry that they will tear and eat the pages!

    8. Julia says

      We already have Flutter Fly and it’s amazing! I put it in the washing machine and it just keeps coming back 100% the same! Would love more of these for my three little ones!

    9. Christine Roeske says

      With a two year old toddler tornado and 10 month old who is desperately following in his brother’s destructive footsteps, these books sound perfect for our home.

    10. Kelly says

      My two year old is in a VERY destructive phase right now and ordinary board books are not standing up to her strength – these would make a perfect Christmas gift!

    11. says

      These are so cool! Love the video, too, because that’s EXACTLY what bebes do to books! The first place my Grandbebe Girl Makayla takes her books is straight to her mouth! Machine-washable, too – no pages ripping – and we can make up the stories as we go. Thanks for the chance to win!


    12. says

      This is an awesome idea! I love reading books to my baby and even though she’s not old enough to hold them herself yet, I know they will end up like every other heavily used by a baby book! I love that you can put these in the washing machine or dishwasher! Fantastic idea!

    13. Victoria says

      This is great. My little guy loves to chew books. He has chewed all the corners off of his board books. I would love to give these a try and put them to the test with my little book eater.

    14. says

      I LOVE this idea. My daughter has gone through so many books already, and she is much gentler than my 7 month old son… I don’t see many of our books lasting through his muncher! I would love to win one of these!

    15. Brenda Vicario says

      These books would make great stocking stuffers for my not so gently one year old:) Books that will last are hard to find in a house with little ones so these sound like a great product!

    16. says

      WOOHOO!!! I cannot begin to tell you how super giddy and excited I am to learn of these INDESTRUCTIBLES!!! I hope I win…if not what a super price for books you can wash!!! score! xoxoxo Thanks

    17. says

      I would love to win these. My 17 month old is so terrible on books…chewing, bitting, etc., but he loves books. His siblings weren’t much better. So there are very few that have made it to him. I would love to have these for him.

    18. trixx says

      I try to get my daughter to respect books by taking care of them and yet they still look pretty ragged. This is totally clever!
