Greetings, Learning Expressions Readers!
Have you started to wonder what toys Santa will be stuffing in stockings this season? Pondering what he’ll choose for the fabulous fashionistas in your family? If you said “yes” to either of these questions, you’re in luck. This week, I’d like to introduce you to another batch of our Top Toys!
ALEX Duct Tape Kits
This season, it’s is all about the bling—the duct tape bling, that is. Last year, one of our buyers helped develop an exclusive All Duct Out Kit with our friends over at ALEX. The item turned out to be a great success with kids everywhere, so this year we’re featuring an array of Duct Tape fashion kits in our Top Toys selection, including the Duct Tape Tote Kit and the Duct Tape Jewelry Kit.
Each of these kits comes with fun and funky rolls of duct
tape (hello, zebra print!) for you to get
creative with. The kits also come with accessories that you can tape-dazzle to your heart’s content. Depending on the kit you choose, you’ll find anything from headbands, bangles, and earrings to glasses, bags, and belts. Just pick your accessory then rip and stick!
Simple, illustrated instructions make it simple for kids to imitate ALEX’s suggested styles or create their own unique looks. As a crafty-challenged individual, I relied heavily on the instructions and particularly appreciated the included stencil card. The tape is easy to rip by hand and your accessories come together in no time. My favorite designs from today’s project were the clutch I made (modeled for you by Penelope the Penguin) and the duct tape flower earrings that Tina the Tortoise is wearing.
These kits let you create duct tape accessories from head to toe, and they really are the perfect holiday gift for the duct tape divas in your life.
These little lights of mine, I’m gonna let them shine! One of our favorite new toys at Learning Express are Laser Fingers, little LED finger lights that provide hours of entertainment. Just wrap the elastic band around your finger, flip the switch, and you’re ready to go!
Choose from red, blue, green, or white lights to compose your own personal light show. Flexible bands secure each laser to a finger so you can easily illuminate any spot you’d like. Though they’re fun while it’s light out, once it gets dark these things are even more amusing!
I hope you get a chance to stop by your local Learning Express store and check out these and other Top Toys this holiday season. Our toy experts are happy to demo these toys for you or to help you pick the perfect toy for someone on your list.
Thanks for reading, and don't forget to come back next week for more Top Toys!
