With Christmas less than a month away, it’s high time to figure out what gifts to give the kids in your family. If you’re shopping for something other than technology-driven toys, there are plenty of educational, innovative, and fun toys on the market this year that will be sure to delight! Consider buying one of these unique toys for your kids:

1.)        Rainbow Loom
This Rainbow Loom is a loom kit which allows kids to craft their own fun rubber band links, hair bands, bookmarks, handbags, pieces of jewelry, bracelets, and more. It’s ideal for kids 8+, but younger kids can complete the activity if they have adult supervision. The loom is a great gift because it teaches kids to be innovative and creative (while also giving them a change of pace from computer or video games.) If you’re looking to steer clear of electronics and teach your child to do something more original, Rainbow Loom is the perfect choice. You can order it online at www.rainbowloom.com or pick it up at Michael’s or other authorized toy retailers. The loom costs about $14.99, and individual packets of rubber bands cost about $2.99.

2.)        Little Passports
If you’re looking for another educational choice for your adventurous children, check out Little Passports. The subscription-based service allows your child to “travel” to two new states or one new country each month. Each month, a box will arrive in the mail with a new location and tools to help your child learn about geography, history, culture, and language in a memorable way. The box is filled with fun items and access to online activities and games. Subscription prices vary from $12-$14 a month depending on the type of subscription. You can find out more information at www.littlepassports.com (To round out the gift, consider ordering a Kids National Geographic subscription.)

3.)        3D Fairyland/3D Dinoland
If your child enjoys whimsy and has an affinity for the magical, consider buying a 3D Fairyland for him or her. The set comes with a 40-piece fairyland floor puzzle/play land that your child can use to build their own magical land. The set will teach your child to be imaginative as they decide what they want the castle to be like. Includes puzzle pieces that slide together and measures 27" X 27" X 8.35" high. You can also buy 3D Dinoland, which follows the same floor puzzle concept but becomes a playland for six 3D dinosaurs and an erupting volcano instead. Since these kits are both less than $30, this is a wonderful Christmas option that won’t break the bank.

4.)        First Magical Tea Party
Your little princesses ages 2-4 will love this magical tea party. The set comes with one Game Board, four place settings, three fairy headmistress plates, 36 treat tiles, one puffer teapot, four teacups, and one game rules manual. When the magical teapot blows on a cup of tea, the color changes. The game teaches girls the etiquette of proper teatime manners in a fun way!

    1. Hey Antionette! Once children become close to adult age, gift buying becomes cheaper. My children (ages 8 and 6) are starting to become expensive! So enjoy it!
