Games for The Family During the Holidays

November 30, 2012

We are asked, “What games do you have that the whole family can play together during a holiday gathering?”

The holidays are definitely more fun when the games are brought out of the closet and everyone can let loose a little bit and have some fun.

Ring Toss Word Game from TAG Toys

Word Ring Toss Game from TAG Toys

One of our favorite Games in our TOY Collection is the Ring Word Toss Game.  In this game, each person tries to toss the ring onto a peg to win a letter and build a word.  Players alternate turns, and keep track of words they are building on the included hand-held score boards, with paper or on a chalkboard. The game can be played in teams or as individuals, and difficulty increases as words get longer, and also as the distance between the base, and the throwing line is increased.

Other games in the TAG Toys collection include the Word Discovery Game, Picture Completion Game, and the Number Ring Toss.

Big Toys that Bring the Family Together

November 27, 2012

We are asked, “What type of big toys do you have that encourage the whole family to play together?”

Children love big toy sets, like Family Doll Houses, Auto Garages, King’s Castles and Fun Wheels which spark the imagination and encourage creative play.  These types of toys allow the entire family to play together by pretending to to be different characters, and encourages interaction that brings stories to life.

Christmas Toys that Inspire the Imagination of a Child

November 25, 2012

A reporter writes, “I am putting together an Inspirational Gift Guide for Christmas and I’m interested in what toys you have that can inspire a child?”

Helping a child become inspired is a gift that can last a lifetime. Children can find inspiration through individual imaginative play, through social role-playing, by working on arts/crafts, and when learning about history, science or religion.

TAG Toys Ark Toy

Noah’s Ark Toy from TAG Toys

A parent (or any adult) who wants to make a good faith effort to provide an inspirational and meaningful gift to a child, might be interested to learn that simple, basic childhood toys are far better than high-tech apps when it comes to promoting creativity and fostering imagination, which are the cornerstones of inspiration.

We see inspiration take off when children are provided with an opportunity to play with activity centers like the Toy Noah’s Ark, Doll Houses, Automotive Play Set, Puppet Theaters, and Castle Play Sets.
