Looking for great toys for summer?


 Summer time is in full swing and that means a ton of kids home with nothing to do...eek! It is so shocking to me how quickly kids can get bored so I have a plan of attack educational toys that we can pull out everyday. I will also be watching the neighbor kids so I plan on making a chart and each child can pick a game that we can play. Now I had to search for games that would be good for ages 2-6 and not have characters (the little boy refuses to play girly things) which led me to the WOW Toys website. Their toys are designed to help young children strengthen their knowledge of basic concepts that spark the imagination and communication skills. We have several of the games and one of the cars. My daughter loves the mommy/baby match game and it helps her practice her animal sounds, recognition of similar objects (example- a mommy cat & kitten) and how to put puzzle pieces together. The other children also love to play the game and have turned into their own little memory game.  Our other favorite game is the Snail's Pace Race which is a great game to help build color recognition and teaches my little two year old how to take turns and be patient. The game has wooden pieces and is very well built...I see this game lasting for years even if we play it over and over again this summer. 
WOW toys also offers toys for all ages including infants. My daughter has a car with a two people and it is very easy for her to put the people in the car without help which makes us both happy. The best part of the toys is that no batteries are required! Here are some of our favorite toys:
