Improving Balance, Coordination, Core Strength & Stability

by on Monday, October 03, 2016 2:40:00 PM

Balance, coordination, and stability: these are three skills that children develop as they grow older, and characteristics that are absolutely integral to so many other aspects of life. These three strengths are necessary for children to learn how to crawl, walk, and run, throw and catch a ball, and perform various other activities that children do on a daily basis. Of course, by simply growing older and interacting with the world, all children will develop these strengths. That being said,...

Getting kids Emotionally, Socially, and Physically Ready for Kindergarten

by on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 9:38:00 AM

The start of the school year is coming up in just a few weeks and you may have a kindergartner who is getting ready to go to school for the first time, or to an all-day school for the first time. Your little one is probably excited to go to kindergarten, but you might be feeling a little nervous. Talking to parents, we heard that many parents are more worried about social and emotional readiness than academic readiness. Because of this, we have decided not to focus on academic readiness in this...

Boost Kids’ Imaginations with Play Pretend Toys

by on Friday, July 22, 2016 1:04:00 PM

Many parents are well aware of the joy that children derive from using their imagination to play with pretend play toys. Offer a child an imaginative toy to use during playtime, and you may quickly watch them get lost in a world of their own creation, one in which they can craft whole story lines and characters in their heads. Playing pretend certainly has benefits, as well. Letting your children engage in pretend play allows them to expand the boundaries of their imagination, which can aid in...

by on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 7:00:00 AM

It is fairly easy to spot a toy that your little ones truly love. While some toys may see a few hours of use at first, only to be relegated to the toy basket for the foreseeable future, some others become a staple of playtime fun, those your children simply cannot seem to live without.

How then, can you ensure that the toys you select will be popular with your little ones for...

Safe Pregnancy Exercises During Your First Trimester

by on Friday, September 11, 2015 12:17:00 PM

Being pregnant is often one of the most wonderful times in the life of any woman. During this time, the woman is growing and nurturing inside of her a young life that will one day be her very own beloved child, representing the beginning stages of the miracle of life. Of course, because pregnancy entails caring for a future child within a woman’s womb, most expecting mothers do virtually everything in their power to help provide for the child’s safety throughout all three trimesters. And, as...

What to Do with Old Toys

by on Friday, September 04, 2015 12:40:00 PM

As loving parents, we often try to provide our children with as many toys as they could possibly need. We offer learning toys to help develop their minds, active toys to improve their hand-eye coordination and motor skills, and even different abstract toys to allow our kids to use the full power of their imaginations to determine their own fun. Of course, because many of us supply our kids with so many toys and games, we may find, years (or even months) later, that the playroom is filled with...

by on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 12:22:00 PM

Very often, kids are able to entertain themselves using nothing but the power of their imaginations. Of course, if you are a parent, you may have witnessed this in action on numerous occasions; you watch your child in the backyard, and it seems as if he or she is lost in another world having an adventure with pretend characters. It is truly strange, then, to hear cries from our little ones that they are bored, especially during the summer months when the great outdoors provide a beckoning...

How Have Toys Changed Over the Years?

by on Friday, July 17, 2015 12:39:00 PM

Most of us have had the privilege of listening to our grandparents regale us with stories of their youth, informing us of how lucky we are nowadays to have the toys and technology we use on a daily basis. To be sure, the type, material, and even purpose of toys have all changed significantly over the past years. In fact, this is easily visible if you look at your children’s toys; most likely many of the things your little ones have today were unimaginable only decades ago. How far, then, have...

by: Andrew A.

It's truly rare these days that a company not only stands behind its products, but also its customers. I have ordered a number of times from Imagine Toys, and will continue to do so for a long time to come. Everyone I have dealt with, whether through email, chat box, or on the phone, has been so pleasant and accommodating. It truly means a lot. Many thanks,
