Ello, folks! I hope that you all are having a wonderful week? Today I wanted to share with you some amazing gift ideas when it comes to fun and educational gifts. Below you will find an amazing roundup of gifts just for your kiddos.
We have shared everything from STEM products to amazingly fun toys for any age group. I do hope that you check these out as out of literally 500 items that were considered these were our top picks for the holiday season.
Even now going on 40 year old I just adore bubbles and I will be doing a feature on this brand before the holiday, but Bubble Tree is all the rage right now. For 70 years bubbles have stayed the same … until now. Created in 2020, American Bubble Company’s product Bubble Tree has changed to the way we play with bubbles forever.
Why Bubble Tree for Back to School? Well, its a great activity for kids of all ages to play indoors or out and blowing bubbles can help with a child’s oral motor skills. So, for that mom and dad who wants their kids to practice strengthen their mouths after Speech or OT without calling it practice or work, Bubble Tree is the perfect addition to any back to school list.
Bubble Tree created the first eco-friendly sustainable bubble system that uses a non-toxic bubble solution that’s made in the USA. American Bubble Company was developed by toy industry veterans who noticed a void in the marketplace for American-made products that are both sustainable and eco-friendly. With 80 years of combined experience, Bubble Tree’s founders have developed a product that will truly produce moments of happiness and fun with children, parents, while keeping the environment in mind.
The American Bubble company takes its responsibility to the environment seriously. Historically, over 300 million one-time-use plastic bottles of bubbles are imported into the United States every year. Bubble Tree’s mission was to reduce this and create products that will contribute to the prevention of plastic pollution in our waterways and landfills. Bubble Tree takes pride in sourcing recycled materials that can be recycled multiple times and repurposed. Their goal is always to deliver high-quality American-made products that are eco-friendly and sustainable. This product was developed to help reduce plastic pollution, waste, and overuse of plastic bottles. It is made from aluminum, the most recyclable material on earth, and 100% recyclable corrugated.
Simply Fun really has some amazing games to choose from this holiday season. Including this fun game called Ice tumble. Players take turns rolling the die and collecting ice blocks. Then they stack their blocks carefully, to make an ice sculpture, without any tumbling off. The first player to successfully place all of their ice blocks and their fox pawn on the sculpture wins the game. The blocks are slippery so be careful or the sculpture may come tumbling down.
Mad Mattr is a super-soft building compound that easily molds and shapes into endless creations. Parents appreciate that unlike Play-Doh, its unique, non-toxic formula won’t stain surfaces or turn dry if left sitting out, making Mad Mattr the ideal calming play time activity.
The all-new Mad Mattr Activity Sets are ready to wrap up and spread holiday joy. These complete kits are ready to play right out of the box, inspiring open-ended creative play.
