Guest Post: Great Toys For Child Designers

Great Toys for Child Designers
Do you have a child who expresses an interest in design? If so, there are so many toys out there that can aid them in nurturing their creative hobbies. Below are a few toys that can all be purchased at Toys”R”Us stores and online at

1.     Totally Me – Stylin Bead Boutique: 
Design your own necklaces, bracelets and earrings with this bead jewelry set. The possibilities are endless, and your child will love showing off their creations, as well as sharing their jewelry design tricks with their friends.

2.     Knitting Machine:
 Your child can learn how to knit their own scarves, hats or even sweaters with this knitting machine. The toy comes with a safe sewing needle and two skeins of thread.

3.      Sculpey III 30-Piece Sampler Pack: 
Your child will learn how to mold their own figures, and they can even create permanent sculptures by baking them in the oven. This kit includes 30 one-ounce sample-sized bars of Sculpey. Instructions and project suggestions are included.

4.     The LEGO Ideas Book: 
For the child who shows interest in building design, this book is a perfect way to jog their imagination. Tips and hints on LEGO building are provided by Master Builders. With 200 solid pages of photos and ideas, your child could become a Master Builder in no time.

5.     Totally Me! Make Your Own Dollhouse: 
This toy is such a great idea! For the child who truly shows an interest in interior design and architecture, this is a perfect way to get them started. You literally build the dollhouse from scratch by first gluing the wooden structure together, then painting it and last decorating it.
