So many toys now feature lights, sounds, and utilize technology and, being a techie myself, I love that. But, it is nice to have my kids unplug and use their imaginations or other skills to play sometimes, which is why I love Manhattan Toy Company’s new line of Imagine I Can toys and crafts for kids. This line was mentioned as one of the best at this years Toy Fair by The View and by Parenting magazine. They were nice enough to send us three items from this new line and we fell in love with Manhattan Toy Company because of them.
Imagine I Can Cheese Chase is a simple yet fun strategic game where the sole motive is to get your wooden mouse to its cheese counterpart first. This comes in a small tin where its 6 pieces store very compactly so this game is great for playing on-the-go. It is very sturdy because all but the case is made of wood and very easy for kids to understand yet still very engaging. Plus, this awesome game retails for only $6, so it’s highly affordable.
Imagine I Can Pet Rock Pals take all the fun of the pet rock craze but add some creativity and flair to it. Using air dry, rock-colored and textured clay, kids make their “rock” and then decorate it with pre-cut felt pieces, googly eyes, and pipe cleaners to create a completely one-of-a-kind pet rock that they can keep for a long time. We had so much fun using our imaginations and making cute little “friends”. This kit is fun for nearly all ages, is easy to use, and is again affordable at only $11.
Finally, everyone can have tons of fun creating their own erasers using Imagine I Can Crafty Eraser Creations. Simply open the package, knead the rubber clay pieces, and start designing! You can use the pre-shaped molds or create anything else you can come up with. Once the creations are done, simply boil them in water for 10 minutes and allow them to cool and you have custom erasers that really work! This was our favorite of the three (though we loved them all so much that it’s hard to pick a favorite) and we really love our unique, homemade erasers. This kit also retails for $11.
As you can see, the Imagine I Can line from Manhattan Toy Company is fun, imaginative, and affordable and there are many more kits to choose from on their website, www.manhattantoy.com.
