We have been huge fans of NeeDoh for awhile now.  I am always looking for great fidget toys for my little guy and I love that no matter how many times we drop, squeeze, and play with these they have never popped on us.  They are a great toy to keep around the house for when its getting a little too much for little guy.  He can just grab one an play with it to calm down.



My son loves these.  We have been buying him sets for a few years now and I always find him playing with them.  He loves to build different things and even uses them when we are learning math.  These are not only a fun toys for kids but a great learning tool. What started out as the Original Magicube system has now become a world of magnetic building blocks with the addition of three new shapes: the half cube, quarter circle and the half sphere. The construction possibilities are boundless and your imagination will fly higher and higher! Characters, animals, structures: you will be surprised how many things you can invent.

The ez- Fire Blasters are going to be the hit of the holidays.  Make sure to get one for everyone in the family you will be having hours of fun.

OMG these are so cute and if you have a little one that loves surprise toys then Piñata Smashlings are a must.  They have so many you can collect and they are at a great price point.  I love the mystery boxes for stocking stuffers.
