As a mom of 10 kids I’m pretty picky about the toys we own. We simply do not have the space to store lots and lots of toys. I like toys that are used often by a wide range of children and that encourage creative thinking, and/or cooperative play. I can literally walk all the way through some of our local big box toy stores and not wish to have any of the toys in the whole establishment.
Constructive Playthings recently sent us a catalog and unlike those big toy stores, I love the selection of toys that they feature. From educational options like this Interactive Bug Board to developmental options like these climb on, roll down, jump off soft play forms or this giant soccer ball and even a large selection of crafting supplies, the Constructive Playthings catalog has given me several good ideas for our end of summer ‘birthday season’ (four birthdays in 4 weeks).
The best part of the catalog are the clearance pages. I ordered this Mountain Rail Adventure Train set that is clearance priced for about 75% off normal for Colby’s birthday. Don’t forget that if you use the button in my sidebar, Constructive Playthings will give you 15% off your entire order, anytime.
For your own gift inspiration you may request a free toy catalog from Constructive Playthings, but you may want to hide if from your kids. 🙂
