My First Smart Pad —
The World of Eric Carle

Great for kids who need narration, this tablet contains tons of phrases, sounds and songs along with 50+ spelling, alphabet, counting and color activities. Bonus: It's done through integrated story- books featuring the work of one of kid-dom's most beloved author/illustrators.


Crayola Color Wonder Fingerpaints

Ages 3+; $8.99

Kids who need to touch can get hands-on with this no-mess way to fingerpaint. Color Wonder paints feel like the real thing but are formulated in such a way that they show up only on specially designated paper (included), so there’s no telltale trail that paints were even opened.


Mega Bloks Build ’N Learn Table

Kids with motor skills issues need larger toys to grasp and manipulate. This Mega Bloks entry allows them to build an imaginative townscape with large, colorful blocks that stack on a 3-in-1 portable table, augmented by four scenes, stickers, figures and a car.
