When my kids were little, Manhattan Toy’s Whoozit and Skwish were among their favorite playthings. And while they are still tried-and-true gifts for all the younger nieces and nephews in our lives, I am thrilled to find a fun and creative line of toys that Manhattan Toys has developed with older kids in mind.  

Pet Rock Kit on Cool Mom Picks


Manhattan Toy’s Imagine I Can play kits are fun open-ended play and crafts kits for preschoolers and bigger kids. I appreciate that they are so reasonably priced that it’s easy to set aside a few for those rainy days that creep up all spring and summer.

Manhattan Toys Lace & Play Animals on Cool Mom Picks

At only $5, the Imagine I Can Lace & Play animals are a cute way for little kids to practice their fine-motor skills by assembling and lacing up animals like the adorable hedgehog or wide-eyed sheep.


Manhattan Toys Create and Color kits on Cool Mom Picks

Or, grab a few Create and Color kits, like the alien here, or the super-cute Pet Rock Kit at top for a birthday party activity that doubles as take-home party favors. 

Manhattan Toys Imagine I Can Treasure Hunt on Cool Mom Picks

For kids like mine who love to play “pretend anything”, check out their Pirate Treasures or Secret Agent Spy Gear, which come with well-made props for an afternoon of treasure hunt or spy games. And the Feel Better doctor kit‘s wooden toys are a lot nicer than cheap plastic stuff, but at a price that is still less than our insurance co-pay. –Christina
