History Makers Puzzle Block Set:

The History Makers Puzzle Block Set includes 30 wooden blocks with 6 sides of play.

Build, stack, create, learn the alphabet and numbers, explore history and learn self-leadership skills in a fun and engaging way.

These blocks also fit together to form three amazing puzzles; two playful and colorful African American History tribute puzzles, and a puzzle of Bevy & Dave, the Self-Leadership Gurus.

Mini posters of each puzzle are included. Lastly, this set contains a fun mini-history booklet with a bibliography and a self-leadership activity guide.

Operation: Escape:

Do you think you have what it takes to escape? Find out as you search and solve your way through the Spy Code Operation: Escape Room Board Game from Yulu.

Combine skill, strategy, and teamwork in this fun, interactive game to complete a series of tasks and find the master key, which reveals the final step of unlocking the master belt.

smART sketcher:

Play and learning go hand-in-hand. The smART sketcher™ Projector injects more fun into drawing, coloring, and writing with a simple-to-use app.

Step-by-step instructions guide small or large hands through the entire process. Download photos from any mobile app, insert pre-loaded activity packs, or download new photos from our website.

Crayons, markers, pencils, and music add finishing touches. Extension packs extend the play with themed pictures, letters, numbers, and spelling activities. The possibilities are endless!

Slime Makin’ Station DIY Kit:

The biggest problem with homemade slime is that it gets totally everywhere. With the Slime Makin’ Station DIY Kit from WeCool, you can create slime just how you want—without the mess.

This compound slips and slides, but stays together. It sticks to itself so it doesn’t stay on your hand when you’re done playing and doesn’t leave behind any harmful chemical residue.

It’s the kind of compound that you can trust around your child. No glue is required, just add water.

See what I mean? These are great toys that are ideal for children of all ages. Add them to your holiday shopping list and get ahead of the game this year!
