Scared of Halloween

by on Monday, October 31, 2016 3:31:00 PM

Tonight is Halloween, and with it comes scores of trick or treaters dressed in costumes. Most of the costumes you see will be silly or beautiful. Some people love scary costumes, and some houses go all out with graveyard scenes and giant spider webs. When your little one is out trick or treating, he may come across some things that are scary and become afraid. When this happens, your reaction can make or break an ongoing episode of fear. Before your kiddo starts worrying about monsters under...

Be a Better Parent by Practicing Self-Care

by on Friday, October 28, 2016 1:31:00 PM

We are always working hard to be our best selves for our kids, making sure to spend lots of time with them, cooking healthy meals, making sure they have enough toys for creative play, keeping the house clean, buying them clothes, helping them learn and so, so, so, much more. One thing that many parents do not do enough of, is take time out for themselves. It can almost seem selfish taking time away from your kids to go to the spa or hang out with friends, but when you do, you come back to them...

How to Help Your Child Calm Down

by on Monday, October 10, 2016 3:38:00 PM

Every parent has had to deal with tantrums that leave you frayed with skyrocketing blood pressure. Kids usually have tantrums when they are tired or hungry, or when they are too young to communicate what they are feeling. One of the worst parts about tantrums is that they can happen anywhere at any time, and they often happen at the worst possible time. There are things you can do to help avoid tantrums, but there are also steps you can take to stop or lessen a tantrum when it is already in...

Dance Energy Away & Make Music

by on Friday, October 7, 2016 2:50:00 PM

There is no doubt about it – little kids always seem to be moving around, especially when there is music in the air. Something about fun rhythms and catchy melodies cause children to tap their feet, hum along, and even shake and dance about wherever they are. And it’s healthy, too – by dancing around to the rhythm and melodies of the music, your child is dancing away some of the energy pent up inside of them, and engaging in a healthy activity. Here at Imagine Toys®, we love it when children...

Creative ways to dispose of Old Toys

by on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 3:25:00 PM

You may be floored to hear a toy company say this, but we agree that you can have too many toys. In spite of your best efforts, even pleading with friends and family to stop giving you toys, you may have toys everywhere in your house. As toys slowly take over, first the kids’ rooms, then the basement, play area, garage, living room, and on, you may start thinking about how to get rid of the less loved toys. Getting rid of toys is a twofold battle, sneaking them out before the kids see you, and...

How to Make Cooking at Home Easier and Eat Out Less

by on Thursday, September 15, 2016 7:55:00 AM

You've probably heard a thousand times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially for little ones. While a hearty breakfast may provide our children with enough energy to last throughout a day filled with fun activities, an evening dinner with the family is just as significant. A healthy dinner helps revitalize our children after a day at school or elsewhere, and helps prepare them for extra homework or nighttime activities, or even a restful sleep to get them ready for...

Thank you for making shopping easy by selling so many wonderful toys to choose from!
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,
