The Best Toys for Kids 2013 List by ASTRA
Only toys that are creative, innovative, and support open-ended play are consider for a spot on this coveted list. It’s not easy either–650 experts hand-picked the 21 toys for this incredible gift guide. From babies to big kids, no one is left out of the fun!
Squigz (by Fat Brain Toys) — The Fat Brain Toys brand are known for their clever ingenuity but they’ve definitely outdone themselves this time! Squigs can stick to anything–and in my opinion, well, these might end up an awesome new tub toy.
Super Magnetic Tidal Wave Thinking Putty (by Crazy Aaron’s Puttyworld) — Move over boring putty! This stuff is anything but silly! It’s magnetic! Perfect for learning fun and an excellent addition to science experiments, this will get creative hands thinking in a whole new way.
Laser Maze (by ThinkFun, Inc.) — Anyone already familiar with ThinkFun, Inc. will jump for joy at this great addition to their logic game line. No kid can resist the use of lasers! Don’t worry, though–kids use lights and mirrors to solve the increasingly complex puzzles.
