Hot Toys of the Month: Back to School Ready!

As the kids head back to school, the DCM is celebrating learning and the start of the new school year! Swing by our Fun in Store gift shop and pick up any of these toys to keep young minds working in a fun and educational way.

First, check out Melissa and Doug’s collection of back to school toys. With “School Time: Classroom Play Set,” kids can continue the classroom learning at home with a playful twist! Children will have fun taking turns playing the roles of “student” and “teacher” with this interactive toy that includes drop-down desks with double-sided whiteboards, activity cards, and more! “Write-a-mat” is perfect for making learning fun at your kitchen table. This placemat is double-sided and has re-usable activities on it to complete with the “Learning Mat Crayons.” It can also double as a mat for doing homework on, and later, eating dinner on! For beginning learners, try out the “Water Wow!” booklet for practicing writing the alphabet in a surprising way. Using specialized paper and a water pen, children can learn and trace the letters of the alphabet with no mess, and then watch as the “ink” disappears once dry for additional practicing later!

Finally, explore your anatomy with a 4-foot tall “Human Anatomy Floor Puzzle”! Figure out where different parts of your body belong with this 100-piece puzzle set. Extend the learning by jumping into the “How Your Body Works” book. Learn all about the different organs you just put together, including what they do and how they function. It’s the ultimate guide to figure out everything you’ve ever wanted to know about your body!
