Museum Tour Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

Having three children, one secret that I have learned over the years for holiday shopping is that quality is far more important to quantity. It is always the toys that inspire their creativity or imaginations that get the most play time and enjoyment. Therefore, I was very excited to discover Museum Tour which is an online website and catalog that features that features the most innovative educational toys, books and gift ideas. Museum Tour is sure to get children of all ages excited about learning while playing with a fabulous selection of science, nature, math and art related toys and products. Featuring fabulous gift ideas such as the Candy Chemistry ($36.99) set for young scientists with a sweet tooth, the Enchantmints Unicorn Jewelry Box ($29.99), the Doodling Robot ($17.99), the Belly Bump Jr. (starts at $29.99) and the Chaos Tower ($134.99) there is sure to be the perfect holiday gift idea to make a special child’s eye widen with excitement when opening up their present from Museum Tour.

I love how Museum Tour helps to make shopping easy as there is a wide selection of toys and gifts to choose from that have been compiled from curators of zoos, aquariums, museums and science centers. The Museum Tour website is very customer friendly and easy to navigate and it includes categories to browse based on the child’s age or grade and includes products for kids from preschool to high school. I also appreciate that there is a wide range of price points to choose from so there is sure to be a great gift or stocking stuffer for virtually every budget.

My eight year old son, Adam and his little brother love to build and create and in fact, he dreams of becoming an engineer or an architect when he grows up. Therefore, I knew that the Magformers Carnival Set ($74.95) would be an exceptional toy that would immediately capture their attention. This set includes 46 pieces complete with little action figures that can actually be built into the ride. They can work independently or cooperatively and experiment with the triangular, square, rectangular, diamond and trapezoid geometric shapes to build the neatest 3D magnetic models including a Ferris wheel. What a wonderful gift idea for any child ages 6 and up who enjoys creating and building!

Museum Tour Review

There are so many great options to choose from while shopping at Museum Tour and another one of my favorites is the Solar Rover ($19.99) which turns a recycled aluminum can into a working “Solar Rover” that is motion powered by the sun… cool! Many of my friends have been raving about how their children can play with duct tape for hours so the perfect gift idea for them would be The Duct Tape Book ($14.95). My seven year old daughter absolutely adores horses so I know that she would be so excited to receive the Enchantmints Jewelry Boxes in the Horse or Unicorn theme (there is also a pretty ballerina). These beautiful jewelry boxes are lovely and features a rotating horse, unicorn or ballerina that plays music and holds your child’s special treasures.

I am extremely impressed with Museum Tour and I highly recommend it as a must-visit website to start (and finish) your holiday shopping for the kids. While I have given a few of my favorite gift ideas there is a huge selection of products to choose from…….which toy would make your child leap up and down with joy this holiday season?
