Building Toys For All Ages with Magformers Magnetic Construction Sets

I have partnered with Magformers for this feature. Opinions are my own 

Building Toys For All Ages with Magformers Magnetic Construction Sets

If you have a young child you surely recognize these patrol pups! In the Nickelodeon line of Magformers there is the Paw Patrol 20 Piece Ready For Action Set. If your child is too young for this set aged 3 and older then Magformers has the Dolce plush line and for the older kids there are plenty of building sets aimed to challenge their creativity.

This Paw Patrol set has 14 magnetic pieces and 6 insertable character cards that can be combined in any piece for color and shape practice. These pieces really stick well as the magnet holds the characters together well for building up, down or side by side.  The magnets are Rare-Earth Neodymium for guaranteed connectivity.

It comes with a build booklet giving step-by-step instructions on building ideas to start their creative flow. Clean up is easy as they stack together and stay piled in the box or any way you wish to store.

This is the Magformers Dolce Cow for infants ages 0 months and older. There is so much happening with this toy. It comes with a ring so you can hang it from a seat, crib or stroller for play anywhere you go. It is sure to stimulate your child’s tactile and auditory senses.

The body is a soft velour with incorporated fabrics and even a teether tag. The feet crinkle, the colors are bright and there are click-clack sounds and squeaks.

These plush come in a few animal and character versions and are a great baby shower gift.

Find more sets for kids of all ages at Magformers and also find these at retailers like Amazon.

Educational Insights’ First Collectible Product: Playfoam Pals Series 1

I have partnered with Educational Insights for this feature. Any thoughts are my own

Educational Insights’ First Collectible Product_ Playfoam Pals Series 1

Playfoam! We know it as a hot product for kids. It is mess-free, non-toxic and never dries out. You can buy it in small quantities or larger bucket styles. Collect the colors and create play spaces that open the imagination wide open and there is no mess to clean up. They can leave it out because it will be just as pliable when they come back to it. Educational Insights just stepped your Playfoam up a level by adding a surprise toy inside.

foam blind pals

Right now Series 1 Playfoam Pals is available and in this series the toy surprise are wild animals from around the world. Not only can they use the foam inside but with a blind box style, they can collect all 12 wild animals (their Playfoam Pal).

They do not know which animal is inside until they open it up and tear open the pouch. As they collect the pals they can switch heads to make fun hybrid animals. Plus they get more Playfoam with each piece to add to their creation they are building. These are the types of learning toys you will find at Educational Insights.

Foam Pals

We were so excited to see the sloth! OK…I was excited because sloths are my favorite animal. The 12 wild animals are so adorable and on the insert are animal facts! One of our animal facts were: A lion’s roar is so loud it can be heard up to 5 miles away. 

educational insights

Anthony is having fun playing, creating and learning about his animals. And I still want to take his sloth and display it at my work desk! He is too cute and his name is Speedy according to the insert-lol. Get your kids started on this adorable series at Educational Insights!

4 Popular Gift Ideas for Your Child’s Christmas Morning

I have partnered with Zing and Yulu for the popular gift ideas feature with samples sent

4 Popular Gift Ideas for Your Child's Christmas Morning

Popular Gift Ideas For the Stocking

Zing Dama: This is an evolved version of the KenDama  with the added concept of a yo-yo and Zing. It is built with a ball, ring, string and adjustable strap. The strap goes on your finger and how you catch the ball depends on your skill level. There are added LED lights to make it even more fun any time of the day. You can buy in stores and on Amazon.

Metal Chuckz: Like thumb chucks, these are coated in a softer “Metaltek” coating. No bloody knuckles for you with this coating. But, they are weighted and heavier than thumb chucks. So you can put your best skills into it.

Spin Circuits: Like a fidget spinner only way cooler. It is 3-pronged and the LED light system offers 20, YES TWENTY, different pre-programed patterns. Anthony likes to stack him with his other spinners and really put on a spinning show. We found some on Amazon.

A Gift for Under the Tree

Have you seen the Yulu games? These have become such a hit with my 9 year old. He owns Safe Breaker and now his newest game is Operation: Escape. These games are like a virtual escape room concept where the goal is to break in or break free. Operation: Escape is about breaking free. The Skill Challenge requires players to wiggle a key out from the bottom of a cage using sticks. The Strategy Challenge uses cards divided into 3 levels of difficulty. Find these popular gift ideas in stores and on Amazon.
