I (Laura) am a big fan of toys without a lot of bells and whistles for my kids. Not only do these toys encourage my kids to use their imagination and creativity, they’re also (usually) a lot quieter. :)
This Imaginarium Wooden Blocks 75-Piece Set caught my eye on ToysRUs.com. It’s currently priced at $8 (regular price $16.99), plus you can get free in-store pickup or free 2-day shipping if you happen to have a ShopRunner account. (For comparison’s sake, this same set is priced at $18 + shipping on Amazon.)
This set includes:
- natural and colored wood blocks in 6 different shapes
- storage bin with shape sorter lid
Your turn: What kinds of toys are your kids’ favorites? How do you feel about toys like these?
