Imaginary play is one of the oldest toys in the book!!  These days it’s also one of the most overlooked thanks to technology and everyone being plugged in pretty much 24/7.  I sat in amazement as I watched my (almost) two year old great niece navigate the pictures of my sister’s iPhone to the video of my pet turtle!!   If fact, I think she and her big sisters who are six and eight could probably TEACH me a thing or two about MY iPhone!!  What ever happened to good old fashioned toys, and using your imagination at two, six and eight years old??!!?

Thumb-things finger puppets will have both kids and adults using their imaginations once again!!  Thumb-Things are “handmade with love,” and because they’re hand made, each one is unique and no two are the same!!  They were originally made by the Incas of Peru, and the tradition of making them has been passed down from generation to generation.  They are still created using traditional methods.  You can read the story behind these super cute finger puppets HERE, and fall in love with them as well as the story behind them!!

Once you play Exploding Kittens one time you will know why it’s the #1 backed project in Kickstarter history, (219,000 people backed this game in 2015). It’s a card game for 2-5 players ages 7 and up who are into kittens, explosions, laser beams, and sometimes goats!! 

This highly strategic and family friendly card game is a cute and fun Russian Roulette type game.   In order to play this game, players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten card! When that happens the person who drew the card EXPLODES and is out of the game UNLESS they have a defuse card.  If they do, they can defuse the exploding kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs and catnip sandwiches, ha ha!!   [Read more…]

The CRAYOLA AIR MARKER SPRAYER is one of Crayola’s funnest and most entertaining products yet!!  It turns plain Crayola markers into fun, colorful airbrush spray color!!  

WE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE MARKERS WHEN I WAS A KID!!  How unbelievable is that?? I was born in 1965 and apparently Crayola markers were introduced in 1978 to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Crayola crayons!! [Read more…]
