Little Zen Minds is an online toy store specializing in unique educational toys that you won’t find at traditional toy stores. Love the wide variety of unique toys available on their site and how easy it is to navigate to find a perfect gift for your child! If you are looking for some unique educational toys for the kids this year here are six great options for each age group:
Rotating Music Box
For the little ones in your life, I am in love with this adorable Rotating Music Box. I love that this is one of those toys that can grow with your baby. The lights and sounds would interest and engage a newborn and the ability to roll the music box would be fantastic for a sitter or crawler! I also love that it is made with durable child safe paint finish and child-safe BPA free plastics.
Amazing Animal Alphabet Puzzle
Puzzles are such a great way to help begin the letter identification process. I had a similar wooden puzzle when my kids were tiny and it was a fun way to begin the introduction to letters with them! I love how beautiful, colorful, and unique this Amazing Animal Alphabet Puzzle is!
The Grace Doll from the Dollkind
I am so in love with these Grace Dolls from the Dollkind and what they stand for; spreading kindness! For each doll sold a doll is donated to a child less fortunate. Additionally, each doll comes along with a “kindness kit”. “Each kit includes 10 tokens with special phrases on them to show gratitude, love, and kindness. These tokens are meant for children to give out as acts of kindness. Also in the kit is a list of acts of kindness to inspire your child to get started sharing and giving their tokens. The doll has a secret pocket on the back to store a token.” Not only are these dolls absolutely precious they are also teaching kids the importance of kindness!
Little Yogis DVD Vol 2 from Wai Lana
My kids would absolutely love this Little Yogis DVD. My daughter’s preschool use to teach yoga, but stopped teaching it right before she started and she was heartbroken. Both of them have wanted to try it! What a fun way to encourage some healthy exercise especially as this cold weather sets in and it is harder to get outside.
Hape Pallina Ocean Rescue Family Game Stem Toys
The Hape Pallina Ocean Rescue Family Game is such a great game for siblings to play or for family game night! Love that it is made with durable child-safe paint finish and solid wood construction and that it encourages strategic thinking!
ALEX Toys Future Coders Poppin’ Pictures Coding Skills Kit
This kit looks like so much fun! This kit, “breaks down images into sequences of symbols so kids can learn to create pictures using code. With the suction cup tool, they grab tiles and pop them into position on the grid according to their challenge card.” Such a great way to introduce the concept of coding at a young age! Such a great price too!
