It is, of course, impossible to review all of the amazing educational toys out there. My Gifts for the Gifted series is not nearly as expansive as some of the other lists that you can find this time of year. Just in case you don’t find something that you think your child/student/niece/nephew/ would like on my list, here are some others that I plan to use for my own shopping ideas:
- The Kid Should See This Gift Guide – I always ask my family for a few items from this list every year. This year’s must have’s? Brain Builders and Design Your Own Marble Maze.
- DIY.org Gift Guide – Even though I’m not a Tween, these Jewelbots look super cool. I would also love to see the students try building with these YOXO Construction Toys.
- Maker Gifts for Kids – I’m getting a Raspberry Pi in a couple of days, so I can check that one off the list!
- Top Ten Makerspace Favorites 2016 – OMG. I want half the things on this list, but I’ll settle for one or two. Santa, please bring me Sticklets and/or Rigamajig!
Stay tuned on Friday for another installment of this year’s Gifts for the Gifted!
