3D Magic Maker

Toys that are interesting and easy to play withhold attention for longer extending the play value and learning capacity at the same time. For older children who love arts and crafts, the 3D Maker will tap into their creative side. This revolutionary starter kit comes with one 3D Magic Maker. A selection of moulds and colourful magic gel pens to help children create endless works of art from scratch. Once the moulds or stencils have been filled let the creation station perform its magic and turn each piece into 3D structures.

Baby Craft Toys

Making and creating things has fascinated children of all ages. Older boys and girls will spend hours on construction projects and creative toys. While the younger crowd will prefer instant fun with baby crafts like In the Night Garden Aquadraw from Tomy. The no mess toy is a boon for parents who can nurture their child’s creative nature without all the mess that usually comes with inks and paints.

Drawing Boards and Sketch Pads

Tomy and Chad Valley look after the little one’s artistic flair with an array of products. This can be mechanical drawing sets, drawing boards and doodlers. there’s also Glo doodle for endless sketches that can be erased and done over again.

As a child grows older they develop better hand coordination skills. They will appreciate advanced intricate craft kits, construction sets and more difficult puzzles. Their problem-solving skills and ability to work out how things are put together come to the fore with these types of toys.

Kids will be learning the importance of patience as they take on harder projects. Activities like cookery, painting, sewing, knitting, carpentry, drawing and sculpting. They will soon discover what they are best at from the plenty of creative toys and games they enjoy the most. Baking their first cake, painting a watercolour masterpiece or knitting a fine woolly hat will be such a rewarding experience.

Creative Arts and Crafts Toys

Craft toys are one area where you can find cheap activity sets like crayons that offer good play value for the money. Value packs are ideal pocket money treats that can be picked up by kids themselves who will happily spend hours with them. Colouring books and Crayola pens are a good example. These also make good travelling toys to take on holidays.

Children love the idea of making their own creations. It’s no wonder Moon Sand Adventure Island, Spin Art, Pottery Wheel, Bindeez Aqua Beads are so popular. There’s plenty of fun with Bindeez 3D Studio, Bendaroos and Colour and Style Pony or Puppy toys too.

3D Puzzleball Jigsaws

Jigsaws have always been fun but now there’s more to be found with 3D puzzle ball jigsaws. Favourite themes include Hannah Montana and High School Musical.

There are plenty of painting and drawing sets in the shops to encourage a child to develop their artistic side. Pencil sets, painting and watercolour sets and easels make a wonderful gift for a budding artist in the family. The double-sided Ben 10 Easel is fun for 3-year-olds upwards. It features both chalk and whiteboard with magnetic surfaces.

Aqua Beads

Children will play quietly on their own as their imaginative minds get to work on a new project and feel a sense of achievement with the creations they’ve made. It’s also nice to share the experience that’s why portable arts and crafts come in handy. Aqua Beads Carry Me Compact is perfect for 4 years old to play with friends as is the Bindeez portable activity pack.

Creative play is a good way to develop social skills especially if projects are shared with others. Girls will particularly like the Girl Tech Digi Styling Studio for a complete makeover experience or the Aromatherapy Fountain for making unique perfumes and a face mask.

Boys won’t feel left out with Crayola 3 in 1 Sticker Studio, Glo Station and junior carpentry sets. In addition, there’s Ben 10 Hero Identity station, badge making sets and a real power workshop with safety goggles just like dads!

Lets Cook Range

Future master chefs can try their hand at the Lets Cook range Funky Sandwich Maker or the Fruit Factory, Slushy Maker, Smoothie Maker or Ice Cream Parlour for scrummy gourmet creations. Hasbro’s Play-Doh Magic Swirl Ice Cream Shoppe Set has all the tools to make tasty looking treats. Complete with pretend whipped cream, sprinkles and even candles to decorate a cake. Make believe ice cream never looked so real!

Jewellery Beads and Bracelet Making

Jewellery and fashion design are very popular, especially among girls. As a result toys such as Light up Fashion Designer, Toobie Woobies, Rock Star Jewellery and Spell and Sparkle Bracelets do well at Christmas.  The collection also includes Disney Princess Jewellery Box, Fashion Design Projector Set and Hello Kitty Magic Fabric Studio.
