Holiday Gift Ideas: Hottest Toys For Kids That Spark Imagination!
Branding themselves as “not just another toy maker”, Play Shifu is breaking the barriers of how kids learn and play. As children grow they are curious as to what other states, countries and cultures surround us. The Shifu Orboot is a modern globe that projects over one thousand cool facts in an interactive manner with your iPad. From researching what animals derive from each continent to highlighting educational aspects such as state capitols, children will not even realize they are learning due to imagination that will be sparked through entertainment.
My favorite game from PlayShifu was the Plugo Stem Pack. An educational gaming system that unlocks your child’s imagination it arrives with several play kits to never be boring. Utilizing your very own iPad or iPhone and their Gamepad provided, shapes link and come to life right on screen! This made our six year old thrilled to watch his dedication of linking objects into different animals’ right before his eyes.
2.) Maya Toys
Specializing in various games and everything Orbeez, Maya Toys has every age group and gender covered! I recall years ago just being able to purchase Orbeez and having a small container for them. Now, Maya Toys expands imagination play and reminds even children to relax with products such as the; Orbeez Ultimate Soothing Spa. As my boys indulged in the soft balls tickling each toes, I couldn’t help kick back and try it out for myself! This is truly the perfect gift for anyone. Easy to assemble and the spa holds the orbeez in without any messes (Take it from a mom!) Also on the top of our list is the Maya Jewelry Maker. Easy to use, colorful and fun, girls and boys can take a break from screen time to create friendship bracelets and more.
For children who want to go straight for the excitement, Let it Fly! Was such a hit! With the catch phase; “This is the game where you splat the fly”, my boys could not stop giggling as they choose to be either the Fly or the Fly Blocker. In order to win you must splat our precious fly (not real!) five times. Let it Fly! Produces laughter, family time and extra energy in case board games just aren’t happening that night.
Hasbo has been a household name even when I was a child. Consistently surprising parents with more interactive and genius toys than the year past, I look forward to their holiday rollout. We Know Stuff was able to review a few of their biggest toys this season and can’t say enough about them!
furReal Cubby is a pretty large curious, interactive bear. Surprisingly larger than I expected, he is by far the most adorable talking animal I’ve seen. Promoted as a companion to children, he will make anyone feel loved. Not only does he hug you back, but plays peek-a-boo, dances, eats treats and talks when spoken to. Nighttime mode is just as adorable as he portrays sleepy noises as he drifts off to dream land. Cubby responds with over one hundred sound and motion combinations and is sure to be the next cutest family member!
Avengers Electronic Gauntlet will excite any Thanos fan! Summoning the power of the Infinity Stones this interactive gauntlet comes with lights and sounds. Fitting over most hands, ages five and up will specifically love to go to war with the bad guys and find all infinity stones. Each stone fits inside safe and secure so not to be lost by jumping, running and using their imagination as if they too are in the Avengers: Endgame movie.
Fortnite AR-L Nerf Elite Dart Blaster. As a mom of an eight year old, I hear a lot about Fortnite. What better way to combine a favorite video game of the year and the love of nerf guns into the ultimate gift! Inspired to look like the real blaseter used in Fortnite, imaginations will flourish as children take to the backyards for an ultimate battle. Includes a power up motor with acceleration button, 10-dart clip and 20 official Nerf Fortnite Elite darts. Be prepared to go into battle and come out on top with this one!
4.) smART sketcher
Art expands the mind and allows creativity to flow. With the smART sketcher, children are able to learn drawing and sketching through the use of a small projector. Whether they’d like to trace their favorite photograph or item around the house, the possibilities are endless. What I specifically loved about this company is the different sets that can be purchased. As the child gets older, so does the difficulty level. Kids can purchase the Historic Architecture Set and learn to draw famous landmarks, or simply, create greeting cards for friends and family. There is truly no limit to what the projector can’t do!
