View Master – click here to purchase 

Do you remember playing with a View Master as a child? It was one of little brothers most favorite toys. We would spend hours sitting by the window (getting that nice sunlight) imagining we were on a far off planet or on a safari trip in the jungle of Africa. This year you can share these memories with a child in your life by giving them the gift of a View Master. With the same classic structure, but newer technology this classic toy is sure to be a blast to the past. There are tons of new slides you can purchase, giving a gift that can be “renewed” when the child’s birthday comes up after the holidays. The 3-D eye popping visuals will be a thrill and make perfect toys for long car rides while vising relatives. No batteries required makes it the perfect gift for crunchy parents too!

 Lite Brite – click here to purchase

Throw back toys are in! My favorite toy as a little girl was my Lite Brite. Now, thanks to it’s amazing popularity, it is back as a top gift for children this holiday. I would spend hours creating pictures, words and scenarios. This newly updated version is so much more slim and easy to take with you. It is slightly larger than a tablet would be in a thick rubber protective case, making it very easy for small hands to hold and carry.  It comes with 156 round pegs in white, yellow, blue, pink, orange and green, 1 transparent removable storage tray. Give the children in your life the gift of creativity with Lite Brite. When you share memories of you playing with this classic as a child it will inspire a holiday feeling and lead to making special memories together.

Moon in My Room – click here to purchase  

The Fox kids are in love with the moon. Searching for it in the night sky is a favorite pastime. On cloudy nights the kids get sad, wishing to see their friend the moon. Now they can see it every day with Moon in My Room. This amazing night light from Uncle Milton allows you to see the moon all 12 phases of the moon. The moon is has an authentically detailed 3-D lunar landscape. You can hang it on your wall and use the remote to control which phases you would like to see. Each Moon in My Room comes with a code to download an MP3 to hear a guided tour of the moon. With its auto shut off feature you can let it work like a comfort night light each night at bedtime, then once the kids are asleep it will shut off on it’s own. For any moon lover, this will make the perfect gift. 

Honeysticks – click here to purchase

These crayons are made from 100% New Zealand beeswax and are handmade! Because the crayons are made from beeswax, they are totally non toxic, meaning they are completely safe for children! They contain no paraffin wax or cheap fillers, so there’s no need to worry about your child eating the crayons; although I wouldn’t advise this 😉 The beeswax gives the crayons a nice honey scent and the sustainable process causes minimal impact on the environment. Honeysticks stand out from other crayons not only because of the non toxicity but also because of the unique chubby shape of them. The crayons chubby shape make it really easy for children to hold AND really difficult for them to break.

Mifold – click here to purchase 

Christmas traveling is here! Make traveling easier with mifold, the super slim and easy to transport Grab-and-Go Car Booster Seat! It is more than 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and just as safe. For children ages 4 and up, with a weight of 10 to 100 lbs and 40 to 57 inches tall. It is so small it can be folded to put into a purse, glove compartment, or child’s backpack.  When you have flights, airports, highway travels with rental cars, make the easy choice and use a mifold. It comes in a variety of colors so you can use different colors for different kids (to tell them apart). You can use it all year when you need to car pool, grandparents need to transport your child and other in a pinch situations. Some kids may have out grown their regular car seat, but you are not ready to let them sit without out a booster, then this is the perfect investment.

If your child is a bit too old for the items mentioned above, you could always see here for a gaming PC build: https://buildpc.io/best-gaming-pc-under-300/.
