Manhattan Toy Review

One of the joys that I get every Christmas is shopping for my kids. I love finding just the right toys for them – toys that are on their list to Santa, and some that aren’t but that I know they’ll love just the same. I’m always looking for new and fresh toy ideas that are fun and engaging for both of my boys – bonus if they can play with them together! I’ve already gotten a lot of my holiday shopping done for this Christmas but have had my eyes open for little trinket gifts for their stockings – and I found a great new source for just that in Manhattan Toy.

I received four sets of toys from Manhattan Toy’s imagine i CAN line for review. Each one was small enough to throw in an overnight bag for traveling, yet engaging enough to keep both my boys busy for hours at a time.

* imagine i CAN Farm Fun Minis Play Set – this set is so well made, I couldn’t believe it costs only $6! There are 18 3D animal and scenery pieces to this set that are bright and sturdy, and held up quite well with both my boys playing with them. It was great to see my boys interacting with the scene and making up little stories about the animals. This is a great set for the animal-loving toddler in your life.

* imagine i CAN Jungle Fun Minis Play Set – same specifications as the farm set, same great price. It was great to have both the farm and jungle sets – my boys really enjoyed both.

* imagine i CAN Shape Stack – this one is also at the incredibly low price of only $6. A great stocking stuffer, and easy to travel with game. The object of this two-person game is to stack the blocks as high as you can on the wobbly sphere base, using the colors you roll on the die, before it falls. My oldest loved the challenge of this game, and my little guy loved when it would fall!

* imagine i CAN Lace & Play Lion – I chose this piece to help my oldest son with his fine motor skills. This set is great for hand-eye coordination and it’s a cute piece to hang up when it’s complete. It also gave my son a great sense of accomplishment to have created this piece on his own. The Lace & Play sets sell for only $5 on the Manhattan Toy site.
