Challenges that Delight

The Form & Color toy is great fun wrapped around an activity that makes anyone, young or old, use your brain. Kids love it and surprisingly enough, I do too. What makes this special is that the half-square triangle shapes are tangible, you can feel their shape, and easily move them around.

This is an excellent gift for anyone 5 and up. It’s fun to play with kids, or without. Click here to find this and other wonderful toys on my site.

Speaking of games… Bear found the Pirate Magnetic Figures set, on his own, opened it up and started playing with them! Notice the pirates are not wearing their boots… Bear mostly won’t wear shoes.

The figures and clothes are sturdy and backed with a magnet sheet. They stick to the printed interior of the tin or to other metal surfaces that work with magnets.

Kids will surprise you if you leave them to play on their own. Before long, Bear has added the Raggedy Anne and Andy dolls that my mom (his great-grandmother) made back in the day with her button box.

And this is why these toys are so wonderful! They spark creative play!

Toy Drop!

This Christmas our family is going for quality over quantity. And spending time over spending lots of money. Thoughtfulness. We chose these children’s gifts because they are simple, beautiful, and don’t break the bank.

We’ve waited months for some of these, and with the supply and trucking shortages, it was not a surprise. We kept calm and waited, and now here is a Tour of Toys currently at Piece O’ Cake.

Let’s start with Sew Spectacular – Adorable Animals!

Stitch, embellish, and display 12 adorable paper animals. Everything you need to sew them comes in these kits. It’s a wonderful new take on sewing cards, makes you happy just thinking about it! Perfect for 8y and up.

Magnets are life!

Below are magnet scenes and figures, sort of like paper dolls, but BETTER! Easy to travel with, just tucked into a backpack or purse, to pull out at the right moment. Pirates or Dinosaurs or Eric Carl’s Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Magnetic Puzzles for the win! So smart for in the car, or on the living room floor. Working those fine motor skills, and problem solving. Butterflies & Birds and On The Move, below.

Also for littles, these “spotting” games are fast paced learning fun (and fun for the olders playing with them)! Below on the left, ABC Spot Me Game has 60 icon tiles and 26 abc cards; spot and grab the icon that matches the letter drawn. Simple, right? It’s pretty, sturdy, and easy to cleanup and travel with.

Below on the right, in Spottington by eeBoo take turns flipping over clue cards, and race to find the most the quickest to become the Mayor!

I spy… a pogo spring! a propulsion spiral! a happy coupler! Below, is a puzzle with extra entertainment: Upcycled Robots Puzzle!

Only a few left of Fancy Pachisi and the Solar System Puzzle.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour, have fun shopping at Piece O’ Cake!

Friends, Fun, and Learning!

We have new toys on the site! And when I say “we”, what I really mean is that Lorna and Judy have ordered toys for the site. They love toys from eeBoo —they’re pretty and sturdy and smart— and they know some of you do as well.

Bear got to open the Solar System Puzzle yesterday.

His friends came over to play with him. You can feel the puzzle coming together,

They are very cute, and the puzzle is entertaining.

They were super excited to read the facts on the puzzle that explain the solar system in clear language. Isn’t if great when fun and learning come together!
