Anyone have any suggestions on the best place online to buy blank blu-ray discs?
I'm looking for bulk purchases to back up my 50+ and growing collection, and I'd also love a recommendation on what brand to get.

I guess I'm confused...if the OP wants to backup his BD collection, doesn't that automatically imply the need for dual-layer BD blanks? I.e, the suggestions for 25GB blanks don't apply. In which case, it becomes much cheaper to back up to HDD. Backing up as .iso's to two independent drives will run about $6 per movie, much cheaper than dual-layer blanks. And, since the HDD copies are for backup purposes, those HDD's don't need to be kept online and therefore no additional PC-related expense is required. In the case of failure of the original physical media, then a single dual-layer blank can be purchased to replace that one lost disk. Seems to me to be much more cost effective...

Expanding upon your points it would be cheaper to do nothing and just replace the retail discs if they ever become damaged and unplayable. It would also take much less time.

Also, you are in no way obligated to let your kids handle them. You won't get sued by the family service because you deprive junior form handling your BR and DVD. Make it clear that those are "Daddy's toys" just like the power tools in the garage.
