Gift Guide: Kids’ Toys That Unleash Epic Creative Fun
Great news for all moms out there: there are some toys that will make your life easier. It’s true! As soon as I have kids of my own and they start playing with Legos or blocks in the driveway instead of outside because it’s too cold (or too hot, or too windy, depending on the season), one thing is certain: we’ll need more than just board games to keep them busy!
As a mom myself, I tend to buy toys that challenge my kids to think logically and let them be creative. I prefer Legos to plush toys and board games that they can play with over and over. Most importantly: toys that give you more value than the price and don’t take up much space, haha. Here are some of our recommended toys. Here are our favorite recommendations for creative children from toddler to pre-teen years who love logical challenges but also want something simple enough and not take up all your space at home:
