Great Gifts That Won’t Break the Bank
Here are gift ideas for everyone on your list. The best part?! They’re less than $50! Happy gifting!
For the Engineering type that loves to construct and build…
Super sweet stunts! Build your own gumball machines and learn physics lessons in the process. A turn of a handle dispenses one gumball at a time out of the clear storage globe and down the track. The gumballs land in a collection cup and can easily and sanitarily be returned to the globe for another run. The track segments can be moved around on the base to create an almost limitless number of different gumball machines.
As the gumballs roll down the track, they perform cool stunts and tricks. Stunts include a pulley lift, pendulum, funnel, trampoline, variable-slope ramp, pinball launcher, and domino slide. Each segment of the track teaches a different lesson in mechanical physics, allowing users to explore topics including simple machines, force, motion, momentum, gravity, Newton’s laws, energy transfer, and more .

SmartMax parts are glued together and ultrasonicly welded for final assembly. This makes it impossible for toddlers to tear them apart.
For the competitive puzzle solver…
Each player receives a Genius Square grid (two are included) and a set of nine coloured shapes, plus seven ‘blocker’ pieces. Roll all seven of the dice together and place a ‘blocker’ piece into the squares matching the seven co-ordinates that appear on the dice.

As soon as somebody finishes first, roll the dice and play again! You can play alone and challenge yourself against the clock!

Your little farmer will have a blast with this fun farm tractor from Kidoozie! Tractor comes with a farmer and five animals that all make realistic sounds when placed in their proper seat! Press the funnel to hear the engine and see tractor pull ahead by itself!
FUN AND EDUCATIONAL: Studies show that children’s imaginative abilities are most effectively employed when they’re given freedom within a specific topic or scenario. Realistic roleplay modeled after real-life “grown-up” tasks is essential for developing critical thinking skills. Inspire growing minds with our adorable and adventure-ready Funtime Tractor.
FOR TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS: This set is ideal for broadening mental faculties through creative and active play in young children, ideally toddlers and preschoolers. Includes just enough pieces to be engaging without being overwhelming.
For the little princess…
There’s a charming simplicity in this game for little ones who dream of being a princess! Players move their pieces around the game board collecting plastic costume jewelry, such as rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. The winner of the game is the one who collects the crown and all the jewels that match their playing color. That player is the princess who now turns over the spinner to reveal a mirror into which she can gaze at her royal self. Game play includes the dreaded black ring, which no one wants but someone might get. Sticky jewels are included to decorate the jewelry box and the crown. For young children with royal fantasies, Pretty Pretty Princess is pretty pretty good!
For the person who wants to give back…
Wearing the 4ocean Bracelet instantly identifies you as a member of the clean ocean movement. It acts as a reminder to curb your consumption of single-use plastic and symbolizes your commitment to a plastic-free ocean. Every bracelet purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines.
