Best Toys for Kids

ASTRA brings together specialty toy manufacturers, independent toy stores and toy buyers to encourage smart play and local toy shopping. What I have found shopping my local toy store is a higher level of toys. Generally, they are more creative, imaginative, and educational.  Below are a few ASTRA award winning items that you might find at your local neighborhood toy store that you wouldn’t’ find at the big box stores.

I received toys to facilitate this post.

 Super Magnetic Tidal Wave Thinking Putty

puttyKids love to stretch, mold and shape putty. Super Magnetic Tidal Wave Thinking Putty does this and more. When it is placed near a magnet, it is magnetically charged and kids can do tricks with it. The putty is attracted to magnets, you can manipulate it with magnets by pulling it, shaping it, and more. If you place a magnet under it, it will lift up around it!
