164 Eclectic Kids Toys
When thinking about what kind of toy to buy for a child, it's important to consider the age and personality of the child. When children play, they're learning how to interact with others, define themselves, and learn new skills. It's important to put materials in front of them that encourage this process. More
The P'kolino Book Storage Buggee doubles as a book holder and a pull toy for toddlers and preschoolers.
I love this concept. Box Play creates eco-friendly stickers that turn everyday containers — think milk cartons, macaroni and cheese containers, egg crates, toilet paper rolls — into toys, like milk carton trucks. Let's face it, the kids love the boxes and packaging more than the gift most times...
This fantastic lille city includes four extra small houses and a play map. The walls of the houses are reversible and patterned, so they can easily be customized.
This handcrafted set is made of slices of wood that are stamped on both sides with the letters of the alphabet. They would make a beautiful display.
Bear Chalkboard Coat Hook
We've read Jack and the Beanstalk a zillion times, and I know my kiddos would love having their own magic beans. Each bean has a sentiment stamped on it, and after being planted and watered for a few days, the bean will sprout and display its special message.
This little sweet tooth tin does double duty: it's a chocolate Valentine's Day treat holder, and it's the perfect place for the kiddo's next lost tooth.

Perhaps a full-on picnic sounds like too much work? Younger kiddos will be just as happy with a teapot full of water and this friendly tea set out on your deck.
A modern tree puzzle like this would be great to make with the kids. I love how textural the patterns are.
You can lounge and rest while the kids unpack their very own pocket kites. They're affordable enough to get one for everyone!

These sushi baby costumes are good enough to eat at a costume party. The wasabi/ginger headband accent is the sweetest part of this ensemble. I'll take them all.
Ekorre Rocking Moose
Let the kid in you howl with this cute plush dog. Long tendrils of salvaged newspaper create a great coat for this Hungarian herder. The most memorable guest room I ever entered had classic pristine accommodations and an extremely unexpected and slightly strange bed fellow. Give it to a loved one...
Newsy Puli Dog
Lovely to handle, this mini neighborhood of handmade felt and wood is great for imaginative play or artful shelf display.
These handmade animals were originally made by Iris Savir to cheer up children who were having a hard time. They are special enough to leave out all the time as a decoration, and totally play friendly.

Funky Organic Playmat

You've probably seen the Mentos-in-Diet-Coke geyser experiment on YouTube, but I can tell you that it's much more exciting when you're creating the explosion in your own backyard. Make sure you also have a bottle of diet soda on hand, because your kids will probably want to get right to it!
Catch the wave with this very cool and unique wave-shaped pillow. Kids will love "diving" into this pillow!
