Games and toys are always in demand at this time of year, but finding something that will still be used well into the spring is the real challenge! I have a few fun suggestions for different ages from my friends at BRIO and Wonder Forge.
I have a new nephew, so baby toys are back on my radar. The BRIO High Chair Baby Toy ticks off a lot of boxes for me, because first of all, it’s pretty cute, but it also seems like a toy that will last and get a lot of play.
The suction cup at the bottom allows for mounting on high chair or table, and the fun colorful pictures on beech wood wheel will keep his attention (once he’s old enough to sit up, of course). I don’t know many babies who didn’t enjoy spinning things and watching them change and this is small enough for Mom and Dad to throw in the diaper bag and take when they go out for dinner, whether it’s at Grandma and Grandpa’s or a restaurant.
The BRIO High Chair Toy is meant for ages 6 months + and measures: 6″ x 3.25″ x 3.75″.
The BRIO Family Playset is one of the most fun doll houses I have come across! It’s a modular play house, meaning that kids can build it according to suggestions in the included brochure or use their imagination to create their own vision. The pieces are both plastic and wood, which offers lots of options and it can be built and rebuilt over and over!
The BRIO Family Playset comes with 4 dolls and some interior furniture to encourage imaginative play. It’s such a great size; not so big that it takes up too much space, but not so little that two children couldn’t play together. It would also be easy to use with many other little figurines or dolls that are likely already in your house. It is fully compatible with all of the other BRIO sets and is recommended for ages 3+.
If there is a Star Wars fan in your house, then pick up the
Star Wars Eye Found It! Hidden Picture Game!
“Blast off on a location-hopping adventure through the Star Wars galaxy, from Tatooine and the Death Star, to Jakku and more! Search the galaxy for over a thousand characters, starships, Droids, and artifacts in a quest to find R2-D2!”
This is a game for 2-4 players, aged 6+ (though I’m sure younger fans could play too, with a little help), and as a nice change of pace, it doesn’t require any batteries! My youngest daughter just loves both Star Wars and those ‘search and find’ books so this will be very popular with her this winter. Now I need to brush up on my Star Wars terminology so I know who it is I’ve found when I play with her and her big sister!
