Ages 6-10 Gifts Package Includes:
Spirograph Deluxe Set (ages 8+; $29.99, $14.99 travel size; kahootztoys.com)
Spirograph is back! Use the classic wheels and rings to create millions of amazing designs. Retired for years, the classic art set has been re-released by Kahootz Toys of Ann Arbor, Mich. Sure it’s nostalgic, but it’s also wonderfully creative fun!
Laser Peg Building Sets (ages 5+, $19.99-$42.99, laserpegs.com)
These building components light up with LED lights and are compatible with LEGOs. They make an exciting toy by themselves and add dimension to open-ended LEGO building.
Recess by Justin Roberts ($12, $9 download, justinrobertsmusic.com)
Kid-pop artist and Grammy nominee Justin Roberts never fails to capture those little moments of childhood we all treasure. Whether kids are jumping through the chalked boxes of “Hopscotch” or running around the playground to the triumphant electric rock of “Recess,” these 12 original songs will add energy to your child’s day.
Lishy Lou and Lucky Too by Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band ($15, $9 download, luckydiazmusic.com)
Presented like an old-style radio hour about to graduate to “the talkies,” this unusual album is a family-friendly, enhanced-reality variety show à la “Peewee’s Playhouse,” with a stylish dash of “The Lucy Show” and Marx Brothers comedy mixed in.
