Great Gifts for Nephews, Nieces and Kids of All Ages

December 18, 2012

We are asked, “I have no idea what to buy for my one year old nephew, can you please recommend a good, reasonably priced gift?”

The one-year old’s we know best tell us that the toys they like the most are the most simple, straightforward and brightly colored toys.  From simple building blocks, to basic animal shape puzzles and simple geometric shapes most one-year olds are quick to show appreciation for almost any colorful toy you decide to give them as a gift.

Other simple puzzles like Animal Shape Puzzles or the TAG Toys First Building Blocks also make great gifts for one-year olds.

Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Toddlers

December 17, 2012

A Reporter asks, “What do you have for last minute stocking stuffers for a two year old?”

We think puzzles are a great toy for any youngster and one of our favorite educational puzzles for two-year olds is our Giant Circle Puzzle. This 11-inch round puzzle has 8 jumbo interlocking pieces with eight bold colors. The big pieces are easy for youngsters to grasp and fit together, and the puzzle can provide an everyday activity for a child to work on independently or with the help of a parent.

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.

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.

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.

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.
