It’s Christmas (well, soon) and you’re probably shopping around for gifts for the family.

Play doughs are a great way to improve dexterity and strength of little hands and while you could stuff a ball of dough in your toddler’s hand (and they will probably be happy with it), there’s a much a more fun option available – the Christmas-themed playdough kit by Twiddly Fiddly. 

Priced at $35, the kit contains three tubes of playdough (red, green and white), four Christmas-themed playdough cutters, glitter foam balls, mini Christmas trees, baubles, star garlands, pinecones, pipe cleaners, as well as other bits and pieces for small world play related to the theme!

AquaPlay is an original award-winning water canal system developed to help children explore the physics of water while having fun.

The AquaPlay is a great way to teach your kids about the general properties of water as well as to stimulate their imagination and encourage continual learning, as long as you don’t mind getting a few splashes of water on your floor at the end of the day.

The Little Red Riding Hood – Deluxe by SmartGames puts an exciting twist to the original ‘find the path’ game. In each of the 48 challenges, you will have to set up the game board by placing the trees, house, Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf on the gameboard. Then, try to use the 3-D puzzle pieces to build a pathway for Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf to get home. 

This set even comes with a vibrantly illustrated Little Red Riding Hood storybook. If you wish to visualize the story of Little Red Riding Hood while reading to your kids, you can! 

Recommended for 4 to 7-year-olds, the game aids in developing flexible thinking, spatial perception and concentration in your toddlers.
