5 Screen-free Toys
Are screens frying your brain a little? There are so many great companies out there making wonderful low-tech and screen-free toys. We all know the giants like Lego, but we want to highlight some of our favorite lesser-known toy companies to bring you our favorite screen-free play activities this fall.
Wooden blocks: a classic! Uncle Goose makes beautiful blocks that help kids learn all types of things, including a new language!
Toy cars: Remember Hot Wheels? Modarri is like those, but way cooler. Kids can take apart and rebuild hundreds of combinations of cars, sparking a creative energy and, who knows? -maybe even a future career in auto-engineering! These award-winning toy cars feature a mix-and-match building system, real finger steering, and working suspension mechanics.
Do your older little ones like word games? Have you tried Bananagrams, the super-fun word game that comes in an adorable zip-up banana case? It’s the perfect game to break out on a rainy day and keeps you entertained for hours. The pieces are small, so use caution when playing with toddlers around.
We mentioned Legos, but have you heard of Lux? With Lux building blocks, kids can make structures that curve, bend, and move. The unique, patent-pending snap and lock hinge system allows you to create structures that flex, twist, and turn, while retaining strength and stability. Rejoice, little budding engineers and architects!
Last, but certainly not least….Bubbles! Of course, we’re a little biased. But bubbles are an excellent activity for teaching little ones speech, touch, and independent play. Plus, kids of all ages (even the really, really big ones) like joining in on the fun! Check out our 6-packs of Bubble Fun for play time with everyone.
PS: Want to know how we found such cool companies? We are members of the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA). ASTRA exists to lead the way through play by bringing together members of the specialty toy industry to help each other succeed and providing resources and support to members of the specialty toy industry.
