Tick tock tick tock…That’s the sound of the holiday clock ticking down towards your gift giving deadline. Still stumped on what to give? Check out these great posts that may inspire new ideas and break you out of that holiday shopping rut.
US News and World Reports 10 Top Science Toys for Kids lists toys that will tap into a child’s natural curiosity. It’s a fab list and if it were longer, I bet it would include more items from The Discovery Channel Store like Discovery Paper Recycling Studio ($17.47) and Spark Talking Microscope ($24.47). The Paper Recycling Studio is an eco-friendly gift for your budding environmentalist and the Talking Microscope allows kids to view specimens like brine shrimp and scorpions while learning cool facts about the things they are seeing. If you are interested into a microscope for an older elementary aged child, check out Stimey’s review of the Macro Microscope.
