How to choose the best summer camp for your child

by on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 11:00:00 AM

Many of us remember going to summer camp and having a wonderful time swimming, playing capture the flag, making intricate friendship bracelets, and lots of new friends. It was great to sleep in the cabin and roam through the woods and be away from our parents and siblings for a week or two. Spending time away from family is a great way for kids to learn how to be more independent and resilient. It is also, for many children the only time that they have access to unstructured play. There are...

by on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 9:15:00 AM

An invitation to the first sleepover is perhaps one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking events in the life of any child. A weekend sleepover with a group of friends holds promises of party games and activities, delicious snacks and treats, and sometimes the chance to stay up much later than usual due to the circumstances. But it also means staying in an unfamiliar environment without mom or dad around. A kids’ sleepover may be the first time your little one sleeps away from home and away...

Not Your Dad’s Toy Racetrack: 5 Creative Racetrack Sets

by on Monday, February 29, 2016 12:28:00 PM

As parents, many of us look back on the racetrack sets we had as children with fond memories of fun and exhilaration. To be sure, the racetrack sets we possessed allowed us to witness our toy cars rocket around in circles, flying around the corners and reaching record-breaking speeds (for toy cars, at least). Without real cars of our own, this was the next best way to satisfy our need for speed. But while the racetrack sets we had as children may have been a hit then, modern era track toys have...

How to Build Your Racecar with These Seven Sets

by on Monday, February 22, 2016 10:51:00 AM

Not all kids’ racecars are built the same. To be sure, some racecars may be designed and built for speed, while others may be specifically constructed with fashion and aesthetics in mind. In general, however, most racecars, whether they are built for speed or looks, are assembled by the manufacturer and arrive in a nice plastic package. But wouldn’t it be great if your little ones could take existing materials and build a racecar set all on their own? In fact, this is possible with one of the...

by on Friday, June 5, 2015 12:42:00 PM

Being the parent of a young teen can seem like wading through a forest full of mysteries. Your sweet, delightful, dependent child now has new ideas that you may not understand, and may spend more and more time pursuing his or her separate interests, whether academic, extracurricular or otherwise. And generally kids of this age spend most of their time either tied up in school or participating in other extra activities, providing you precious few hours to enjoy your little one at the end of the...

It is truly wonderful to be the parent of a child age 8 to 10. Kids of this age are extremely intrigued by the world, unbelievably interested in learning, and often have vivid imaginations that they can put to use in a variety of ways.

Summer Backyard Activities Kids are Sure to Love

by on Monday, May 18, 2015 12:24:00 PM

For children, fewer events are more exciting than the first day of summer, and the warm weather that it often brings. Early spring weather generally leaves us damp and a little dreary, hoping for the sun to finally come out behind the clouds. And when it does, it leaves children all the more excited to explore the outdoors and have some fun in the backyard. This summer, don’t forget to get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors with your children. And if you need some inspiration,...

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,
