Connecting Imaginations with Brackitz Bugz Playpark #Giveaway

If I told you about a park for bugs, would you think I was losing my mind? Probably, but I am going to tell you about something like that. The Brackitz Bugz Playpark has 47 pieces including a motorized vibrating bug, using the direction you can build over 20 different play parks and obstacles. Race your motorized bug through fun and crazy obstacles like the Toppling Tower, Super Spinner or make your own unique creation. Every race and playpark combination is different, the possibilities are endless. Best of all, no helmet required!

The bug has 2 skins that you can put on the motorized unit so you can change-up your bug’s look. This set is a lot of fun and we had a blast with it. We put it on our 2017 Gift Guide because it was such a hit at our house for kids and adults (big kids). Enter below for your chance to win this same set.

Classic Kids’ Toys That Stand The Test Of Time-#HolidayGiftGuide Giveaway!

When you think about children’s toys, there are the flash in the pan, flavor of the week toys and there are the classic toys that thrill kids from generation to generation. Parents embrace classic toys because they remind them of their childhood and they know they are a wise investment that will provide their child with years of fun. One of those classics is blocks. Blocks are so great because they are never the same toy twice and the possibilities are limited only by one’s own imagination.

Recently I had the chance to take a look at Lakeshore Learning’s Castle Blocks. These enchanting hardwood blocks let kids create a fascinating fortress, spacious palace & more! The durable, stackable blocks come in 12 unique shapes & are printed on every side with a fun medieval theme—so kids can construct castles from all directions! They come in a set of  60 blocks.

Castle Blocks

My kids loved them and have been playing with them since they arrived. Every day there is a different adventure that awaits them, new castles to build and conquer and battles to be won. This is the kind of creative play I like to see in my child, one that has them really thinking about what they are doing. I think with all the technology today, children need a balance or they will miss out on challenging their brains in a creative way.

The blocks are gorgeous, solid wood and decorated beautifully on all sides. They are a true heirloom toy to be handed down from generation to generation.

One of The Top Creative Toys For Kids of All Ages

Kaleidograph Flora

New From: $11.93 USD In Stock



I recently had the opportunity to review the Kaleidograph Pattern Design Toy.  The  deceptively simple, die-cut cards of the Kaleidograph™ can be arranged in over 350 million designs. Based upon geometry in nature — the symmetries of crystals and flowers — the Kaleidograph upholds the tradition of the original, Froebel Kindergarten system that is known to have influenced Frank Lloyd WrightBuckminster FullerPiet Mondrian, and design education at the Bauhaus. Richly personal and environmentally friendly, the Kaleidograph is a toy for all ages. It fosters creativity, rewards with surprise, and brings out the designer in everyone. Made in the USA, the Kaleidograph carries on a tradition of fascinating geometric design toys dating back to the early 19th century.

This pattern set is so much fun.  It literally is great for all ages.  If I have it out, whoever walks in must play around with it and it is quite addicting.  It is so fun to see the different patterns everyone creates and how they get to that pattern.  Some are meticulous and calculating and other throw caution to the wind and just have fun.  It is simple yet expansive, ever-changing in its diversity, brilliant and beautiful, and mirrors nature’s own strategies of creation.

Explore symmetry and color combinations. See how small adjustments produce dramatic changes. The deceptively simple Kaleidograph can be arranged into millions of designs by combining and rotating the variety of die-cut cards. Each set also includes a full-color, two-sided insert with 68 example designs to challenge and inspire.

  •  Over 350 million combinations
  •  Full-color double-sided poster of designs included with both the Crystal and Flora sets
  •  Made in USA from sturdy, non-toxic paperboard
  •  About the size of a thick CD case — 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″ x 3/8″
  •  Package serves as both sleeve for storage and frame for display
  •  For ages 3 to adult — a toy and a design tool

If you are looking for an original, fun and creative gift for the kids this holiday season, then take a look at   Kaleidograph Pattern Design Toy, it will really delight most anyone.  Mommy Ramblings is adding it to our Holiday Gift Guide.
