Gift Guide for the Kiddos

Ditch the usual big-box toy and game retailers this season, and forget the usual go-to toys and video games. It’s time to give them gifts that spark their creativity! These unusual gems will have them problem-solving, designing and creating in a flash. They best part? They’ll be having too much fun to even realize that they’re learning while they play! Super score.


1. Fashion Designer Kit

For the fashionista in the family. Sketching designs and draping fabric swatches atop the moveable body form will help teach movement, three-dimensional shapes, and problem-solving skills.

2. Playon Crayons

Easy to grip by small hands, or fun to wear atop little fingertips! Give the gift of creative and colorful play that will last all day.

3. Stop Motion Animation Kit

The ultimate for the budding animator. Complete with camera, backdrops, green screen, printables and sound effects software. This will keep all the kids–big and small– entertained for hours.

4.  Stacrobats

These magnetic acrobats will astonish kids of all ages with their balancing act. Stack ’em up carefully and watch them defy gravity. Stack too many and get a lesson about gravity. Either way, they win!

5. Chalktrail

Your kids can leave a trail behind them while racing along the sidewalks. Simply screw onto the back of their bike or scooter, secure a piece of sidewalk chalk, and let them loose. They’ll love being able to see where they’ve been!
