Give the Gift Of Creativity This Holiday Season With imagine I Can

It's never too early to get started on your holiday shopping. I love to start as early as possible. I hate being stressed and rushing around at the last minute or battling other shoppers to ensure I get what I want. To me that takes all of the meaning out of the holiday season.

While Christmas means so much more than gifts, I do love giving gifts, especially things that really help my kids explore their creativity and keep themselves entertained. With all the fancy, tech gifts and toys that require a million batteries, it is so wonderful to find toys that are simple, yet still super fun to play with.

I found some amazing toys from Imagine I Can. To make it even better, they are simple, durable and super affordable. They have a huge selection, but two toys really jumped out at me as perfect for my son.

Shape Stack:
Shape Stack is a cute little, pocket sized, block stacking game. The blocks are different shapes, sizes and colors to make it extra entertaining.
As you can see, my son's set is already missing a block, the biggest one that is the base. While this set is perfect for travel, it does not mix well in a super crowded event (wrestling show) with leveled seating, excessive of noise and an autistic child who is upset by such noise.

He was happily playing with his Shape Stack but kept jumping and covering his ears at the noise. This made the blocks fall off his lap, and somewhere during the event, but base block fell down a couple rows and there were too many people for me to look for it.

Fortunately, this set is a fantastic deal at only $6, so I am just going to get him another one, then he can add these to it and will have even more blocks to play with.

Roll & Bowl Anywhere:
This adorable carrying case has two different games, although you could find many ways to play.
You can play Mini Bowling
Or play with the Marble Obstacle Course.
No matter how you use it, it is engaging. Either of these games can be played alone or with friends.

If you are looking for fun gifts that excite and spark the imagination, entertain for hours and last forever, then either of these toys from Imagine I Can would be perfect. One or two would be great to stuff stockings or gift to children that you don't want to buy something huge for.

I am planning to get a whole bunch and make a huge box as a gift for my son for Christmas. I think I like him having these kinds of toys just as much (if not more) than he does. It is so refreshing to step back from all the new age, high tech stuff and just enjoy simple things.

I hope you are not waiting until the last minute to shop, and whenever you decide to do so, I hope you will consider Imagine I Can. I know it will make the recipient (and your budget) very happy.
