As you peruse Fat Brain Toys, you may find something missing. In fact, if you're accustomed to the toy selection found at most stores, you may find lots of items missing. Missing are the licensed, violent, cheaply made toys that end up in the trash can shortly after being played with by your child. But what you will find instead are THOUSANDS of quality, open-ended toys, games, and gifts that entertain AND educate.
For over 13 years, Fat Brain Toys has been carefully choosing the best toys from around the world in addition to acquiring the single largest selection of American-made toys found anywhere. But the unparalleled selection of quality toys is just one of many reasons that makes Fat Brain Toys unique:
- They provide toll-free support by their award-winning toy EXPERTS before AND after the sale
- They stock nearly every product they sell from their own centrally-located warehouse
- Most in-stock orders are shipped within 24 hours (if not faster!)
- They ship orders worldwide including military APO's & FPO's
I ran across Fat Brain Toys online while searching for products to include in my kids Easter baskets. I decided to reach out to them to ask about reviewing their products and thankfully they ended up sending us some really nice items to include in our Easter Guide.
One of the products that stood out is the Squigz 24 pack Starter Kit. They are flexible fellows and committed joiners. Squigz and fellow Squigz have one chief enterprise - creating things. Willingly, they assemble to become rockets, vehicles, a cushion for the cat, jewelry… they thrill in uniting as a ginormous octopus or squid. They are scientific sorts - always up for playful experimentation and defying gravity - sticking to bathtubs, windows, school lockers, tabletops, and office desktops. (And they are mannerly guests too - never leaving a trace of their presence.)
My boys love building. They've always loved things like Legos and building blocks. They can stay occupied for hours when building things. The Twig Modern Building Blocks are very well made and I'm sure will last quite some time in our house hold. It's a building set that really offers you the freedom of exploring the-inside-and-the-out of fun designing. Playing with Twig is gratifying for your hands - and offers mental play that's exuberant! Learning comes naturally! Twig construction sets refine small motor abilities while developing skills in logic, problem solving, visual-spatial ability, creativity and ingenuity, sensory awareness, language & vocabulary proficiencies, cooperative and independent play skills, and artistic expression. Kids love putting the unique interchanging pieces together - Adults love the freedom of design! Like many of the toys from Fat Brain, these building blocks have won serveral awards such as the Parent's Choice Gold Award, Creative Child Toy of the Year Award and several more.
