My kids only have a limited amount of time each day that they're allowed to watch TV, so the rest of the time, we read, make crafts, and engage in creative play. My toddlers love making sculptures, drawing, playing dress-up together, and building structures out of blocks. Not only do they look forward to using their imaginations, they thrive on it in a way that video games and television simply cannot provide.
So when I learned about the good old fashioned toys at Manhattan Toy Company, I just knew my kids would be thrilled by them. This great company offers toys that encourage kids to be creative. With Manhattan Toy, children can sail the angry seas as pirates, plant a fairy flower garden, or even play doctor! They also have some great artistic, crafty toys that can help kids with hand-eye coordination and art skills.
Here's some more info about Manhattan Toy company, from their website.
About Manhattan Toys :

She even runs around sprinkling fairy dust and flower seeds everywhere, and talks about her "Sophie Fairy Magic". Daddy and I play along, and pretend she's making flowers appear out of thin air. It's really quite cute!
