Shrinky Dinks Cool Stuff by ALEX BRANDS

Tots Collage by Color by ALEX BRANDS
This award-winning toy is great for both boys and girls and provides a fun way of teaching toddlers about primary colors. My two-year-old does not know his colors yet so I tried the collage with him. He had fun sticking a variety of materials (such as crepe and tissue paper, buttons, cutouts and more) on a sticky cardboard. He did mess up a few times, but that’s what learning is all about, right? You can purchase the Tots Collage by Color here for $14.95. Appropriate for kids ages 18 months and up.
Fold N Fly Paper Airplane by ALEX BRANDS
Who doesn’t love folding paper into an airplane and flying it across the room (or at each other)!? With this kit kids ages 5 and up can fold two-sided patterned paper and make 18 airplanes. The kit also come with stickers, a folding tool and easy instructions. Perfect for taking on vacation. You can purchase the kit here for $8.95.
Twist & Drill by ALEX BRANDS
Kids ages 3 and up can build four cars with spinning wheels using a battery-powered reversible drill. It comes with a take-along case to keep all the nuts and bolts organized. You can purchase it here for $29.95
Build & Roll Car by ALEX BRANDS
