This holiday season, find gifts that allow your child to imagine; toys that are open-ended! That’s why we call ourselves Imagine Toys because we think all our toys offer that opportunity.
Toys that use imagination:
- are simple
- don’t have batteries
- don’t do all the thinking for the kid
- are open-ended
- allow the child to imagine the play
Read this post on why imaginative, open-ended toys are best for children’s brain and development.
Gifts that Give Imagination
FREE (because you already have them)
Doctor & Jungle Animals
MEDIUM TO HIGH COST
Indoor – Outdoor Tent
You get the idea, right?
You are looking for a toy that a child can play with for hours, using his or her imagination to develop a pretend play scenario.
These are the toys that are not just best for your kids, but that they will like the best!

I don’t want my kids to be poisoned by paint, varnish, or glue if they put a toy in their mouths – which, kind of happens a lot at a certain age. That’s why I’m a huge advocate for eco-friendly toy companies that assure me their products are 100% non-toxic and safe for my children.
This St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) go green and support our favorite eco-friendly toy brands at Imagine Toys!
Located in Grand Rapids, Mich, they make their blocks from Michigan bass wood here in the US, designed by local craftspeople!
