Christmas will soon be around the corner again and I know many parents are thinking about buying the best top toys for their kids.
There are so many toys to choose from and I forgot to mention the number of different toy stores out there too that offer a great variety of toys.
Choose from the latest toys which are tied to the release of movies or select some of the most popular classic toys such as Lego, Zoids or Transformers.
You can also think about choosing video games that can be either from the computer, Playstation, Nintendo Wii or Xbox platforms or the more traditional boardgames. So as you can see there are many choices of gifts that you can get your children or other relatives every Christmas.
When it comes to choosing toys, I usually try to avoid buying toys that have no educational value. There are many toys in the market these days that kids not only find fun and exciting but also offer educational value, which is a very rare find.
For example you might want to check out the live butterfly garden from Insect Lore. Insect Lore has come up with a whole range of toys that teaches kids about insects and other creepy crawlies.
When you purchase the live butterfly garden, you can send in a form to Insect Lore requesting for the butterfly eggs to be sent to your home. When the eggs arrive, you can then place it into the Insect lore live butterfly garden and watch the eggs turn into caterpillars as well as larvae and eventually emerge as butterflies!
So how cool is that for a toy and I am sure kids will not only be amazed by the butterflies but also stir up their interest in science and insects!
