Construct Art with Design & Drill

A drill turns into an education tool with the unique Design and Drill Activity Center, a 3 and up toy that runs the gamut from simple to challenging, making it a toy that grows with your child. This is one toy they will come back to again and again!

The power drill, with realistic sounds, is used to secure 120 big bolts into the board. Combine the bolts all sorts of different ways to create one-of-a-kind designs, or children can follow activity cards that come with the set to make specific patterns and pictures, such as trains, boats, flowers and fish.

It really is drill and learn!

Twenty activity cards help children with new projects and encourage little minds to take simple ideas to more advanced ones. See what your little one can create!

There’s also a Design and Drill Take Along Toolkit! It’s great for traveling.

Tea for Two – or Four – at The Learning Tree

Shall I pour some tea? Kids will say YES when they are playing the Tea Party Game by eeBoo Toys!

Classic and elegant tea time has been turned into a precious game that helps children develop decision making skills…and is fun, too!

Tea Party Game challenges the 2 to 4 players to be the first to put together a tea party — including a full place setting and a plate full of tea-time treats. You’ll feel like the party’s already started the second you open the box and pull out the real flowered tablecloth!

Players use the spinner to collect colorful tea party pieces, but manners are key to the game as participants must wait politely for their turn. And watch out for those pesky bees – if you spin one of those you have to put a piece back! Try not to get stung!

This game truly is delicious, and perfect for the little 3 to 6 year old tea party organizer!

The March of the AntWorks TvQuarium

AntWorks TvQuarium will make this the March of the ants!

Ants will be marching two by two (hurrah! hurrah!) and you’ll be able to see every step with this space-experiment inspired habitat.

AntWorks TvQuarium is the modern update to the tried-and-true sand ant farms and was inspired by a NASA experiment to study animal life in space. Instead of sand, this habitat uses a translucent gel that provides the food and water the ants need.

But the modern twist doesn’t end there! The ant habitat is contained in a black TV housing with a blue LED light that illuminates the gel, which the ants will tunnel through. You’ll be able to see the 3D tunnels the ants create through in the gel and the blue light will give the TvQuarium space-age appeal!

You can catch your own ants to add or you can send in the kit’s included certificate for live ants. Within days the intricate 3D tunnel system will have been created by the ants and you’ll be able to see it all through the gel!

The TvQuarium is best for ages 8 and older. The dimensions of Antworks TvQuarium are 8″L x 6.75″W x 1.75″D.

The AntWorks TvQuarium is made by Fascinations . They also make Antworks Illuminated, a clear acrylic habitat with blue gel and LED lights. Check it out here.

It’s easy with Sticker Factory!

We have trouble believing that there would be anyone out there who wouldn’t find Sticker Factory pretty cool. Come on, people, you get to design and make your own stickers!

Take an everyday, ordinary (ahem, boring!) piece of paper and turn it into your own unique stickers, with only a few simple steps. If you’re artistic, you can draw your own pictures. Or, if you have trouble even drawing a stick figure, you can use the included stencil or cut out a picture.

Then just send the paper through the laminating sticker machine…and presto! You have your own unique stickers for any kind of use…notebooks, scrapbooks, gift tags…or just for fun!

Sticker Factory comes with a 10-foot roll of sticker paper and a matching length of sticker film, the stencil, burnishing tool, pencil and instructions. We know you’ll stick with it, since it’s so much fun!

Castle Logix is a Royal Puzzler

Kids can imagine themselves as a prince or a princess in the very castle they’re building with Castle Logix , a 3-D wooden puzzle that’s trickier (and more educational!) than it looks.

This single-player logic puzzle comes complete with 4 wooden castle blocks and 3 wooden towers that combine to create a huge variety of castles. A puzzle guide provides 48 multi-level challenges, from Starter to Master. There is only one solution to each puzzle, so brains will be challenged to come up with the correct combination.

Tower by tower, block by block, logic muscles are flexed; logical thinking skills are challenged and spatial reasoning abilities put to the test as castles are built in their own unique way. The guide uses illustrations to show each castle (puzzle) to build. You just turn the page to see an illustration of the solution. There are starter, junior, expert and master level puzzles and kids improve their problem solving abilities as they move up to the next level.

Ideal for ages 5 and up, Castle Logix will continue to challenge children as they use their noggins to complete the basic, simpler puzzles to the more complex and difficult ones.

This is a great toy for kids who love a challenge, like to play alone, have inquisitive minds (what kid doesn’t?) and for parents who want some quiet time for their families away from the TV.

Make Room For The Chunky Puzzle!

Lots of chunky things out there are good: peanut butter, elephants, a banana-flavored ice cream with the word monkey in the name…and this great puzzle! The Vehicles Chunky Puzzle , to be exact.

We probably don’t have to explain why we love puzzles so much — but we will. They are ideal for hand/eye coordination, matching, all of those great learning moments where the brain works together with the hands to put something where it goes, to make it fit where it is supposed to fit.

This puzzle – the Vehicles Chunky Puzzle – gets extra points for being so stylish and for including so many great features. First, the chunky pieces are easy for little hands to hold, and they are chunky enough to stand on their own so kids can use them as pretend-play toys as well as puzzle pieces. They also help little ones recognize the real-life versions when they see ’em. “The plane, the plane!”

And there’s no shortage of vehicles here – we’re talking a plane, train, school bus, sailboat and more! There are nine pieces in all.

If the extra-thick pieces are being used with the puzzle board, full-color pictures are beneath each to help tots figure out what goes where. The puzzle measures 1″ x 9″ x 12″ Assembled

This is just one of several Chunky Puzzles we carry by Melissa & Doug . Be sure to check out the safari puzzle, dinosaurs puzzle, and the farm puzzle. We love them all and so will you! The puzzles are a great learning gift for kids 2 to 7 years old.

Hop on a Fropper!

Here’s another riding toy that finds its way all over our Park Place store…

It’s Fropper!

Kids just can’t get enough of this great bouncy ride-on toy. And adults think it‘s pretty adorable…or maybe what’s adorable are the little ones riding a Fropper !

Fropper is a safe spring-action riding toy that features caster wheels, allowing its toddler riders to easily and safely change directions. It has a unique and modern look – it sports an ergonomic curved seat and long handles; the seat is a secure spot for little tushies, and the height is perfect for tiny legs.

What’s also wonderful about Fropper is that it literally is complete when you pull it out of the box – you simply unfold the handles and legs and you are good to go!

When you’re ready to store Fropper or take it someplace with you, it folds down with ease – and we mean ease! You can grab it and your toddler and be out the door to grandpa’s house or across town for a play date in no time.

Fropper is ideal for kids 18 to 36 months old and up to 45 pounds. This award-winning toy is made by the German company, Okiedog , and distributed by International Playthings .
