Branch Holder – A tiny rubber piece transforms a stick into a sword

Branch Holder is one of designer Naama Agassis projects, which is based on a childhood memory, a memory of children’s ability to make something out of nothing.

Branch Holder is a small piece of rubber with a hole in each end. Put a stick through both holes and the stick is transformed into a sword with the rubber piece acting as the knuckle guard. A generously simple toy that encourages the children to use their imagination.

Discovery Space Center – A Dollhouse Made with Boys in Mind

I love the way a dollhouse can trigger children’s imagination and fantasy, and I dare say that boys like dollhouses just as much as girls do, providing though that it is a dollhouse made with boys in mind!

The Discovery Space Center from Hape is the kind of dollhouse I suspect boys will love. After all It’s a spaceship that is built like a dollhouse. It does not have any outer walls and you therefore have easy access to all the rooms of the spaceship.

The dollhouse has been designed to encourage imitative play and imagination and promote fantasy, story telling, role playing and creativity. It also has a positive effect on fine motor skills.

The Discovery Space Center received the 2011 gold award from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, and a gold award from Parents Choice.

Gorgeous Diecast Model Cars

What to give the boy who has everything? How about a diecast model car with lots of details?

A boy who appreciates cars, quality and details will love to receive a small replica car model of his favorite brand. Obviously we’re not going to discriminate here. If you have a girl who loves cars I’m sure she’ll appreciate a one of these cars just as much and perhaps even take better care of them as well.

Diecast Car Models have an impressive amount of models in different sizes from several car brands. It ought to be possible to find your boys or girls favorite car amongst their selection although it might take a few hours since you can easily get lost just browsing around.
