Whether it’s eight crazy nights or one glorious morning, feel good about the gifts you give the kids this year.
Plan Toys Build-a-Robot, $34
The wooden droid’s four interchangeable heads (each wearing a different facial expression) teach little ones about emotions, while movable arms and legs leave us all smiles.
Garden Treasure Box, $50
A magical souvenir box that turns everyday garden finds into prized possessions. Stash acorns, flowers, and leaves in specially labeled drawers.
A Little Book About Feelings and My Feelings Activity Book, $13
We’re feeling extra good about these books from The Mother Company. In no time at all, your kids will learn to express their emotions with comfort and ease.
Materious Piggy, $54
A piggy bank that teaches two valuable lessons: Save for yourself with the big piggy and for a charitable cause with the smaller swine.
LittleMissMatched Girls’ Fashion Dolls, $40
Nobody likes a brat, and the dream house is in foreclosure. The dolls have style, personality, and character you want your kids to emulate.
