Snap-Together LaQ Building Set

Ok, don't tell my kids, but I'm getting these for them. To be honest, I can't wait to play with these neat construction toys myself.

Bloco Animals

This construction set is at the top of my kid's wish list. Looks like a lot of fun to put together over and over again.

Radio Receiver & Morse Code Kits

Up for a little time travel? Let's way go back to days of morse-code and the early "wireless". I haven't tried these kits yet, but they look very interesting: Radio Receivericon and Morse Code Kiticon The product description says that they're best for ages 10 and up. However, they also say, with adult supervision, they're good for ages 3 and up. Cool! Sounds like a family activity to me!

Shape Scapes Sculpture Set

Shape Scapes Sculpture Seticon pieces have curvey shapes. Not your average construction set. While supposedly a kid's toy, it's also a nice desk toy.


Lego: Imperial Star Destroyer

This is on the wishlist of more than one member of my family. What can I say? We like Star Wars and Legos.

DNA Model Kit

I haven't tried this kit, but it looks pretty straightforward and easy to build...with styrofoam balls as phospate groups and sugars.

We're very fond of kaleidoscopes, of all kinds, here at GalaxyGoo. With this kit, you can build your own tangible kaleidoscope. Cool!

Stacker Pegs Building Set

Stacker Pegs Building Set

This is a really fun building set for little hands! It's hard to find fun toys for the under-three set, since most interesting toys aren't rated as safe because of choking hazards.


LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Invention System 2.0

Lego Mindstorms! This is at the very top of my 7-year-old's wish list. To be honest, I can't wait to play with it too!
