|LEGO Friends Dolphin Cruiser - New This Year|
|Nancy B's Science Club Sets|
Findings in a new study report that grandparents today are very hands-on and like to get involved with play and projects with their grandchildren. When our grown children were young some of our favorite activities to do together were building with LEGOs and conducting science experiments. These are wonderful relationship building activities you can do with your grandchildren and I highly recommend them. These toys can provide a platform for working together - not just something that you give them.
I have not received any samples of these items and these are just my honest opinions. I saw these items - out of the box - at Toy Fair and Time to Play Showcase both held in NY. I took the pictures above at these events - they are not stock advertizing shots. At these shows there are literally thousands of new toys to see and representatives to explain how they work, their company philosophy, etc. I sift through all of this personally to identify toys that I think will appeal to and be understood by grandparents. I admire all the toys with apps and capabilities beyond my imagination but I seldom write about them. I mostly leave that stuff for parents to sort out.
I strongly believe in that special something that we as grandparents have to offer and I try to write about toys that may be overlooked by a parent that will be enjoyed by our grandchild and sometimes may spark an interest that otherwise would be missed.
Check out these items for your granddaughters......who know what spark you might ignite.
