With all of the concern over lead containing toys made in other countries, many parents are choosing to buy American. That’s definitely a responsible parenting choice, but it’s also good for our economy. Here are some of our favorite toys and games that are made in the good old United States of America.
Crayola is a great American brand that kids love! Coloring and making art projects definitely bring out the creativity in kids and help them express themselves. Plus, they’re just plain fun for kids and adults!
I Spy has always been a fun road trip game, but now there are variations on the old favorite. I Spy Word Scramble involves choosing a picture card and then unscrambling letters in your game board to describe the picture. You can be as creative as you want – for example using the letters M-E-O-W if your picture card has a cat on it. There’s also I Spy Eagle, where you get a card with pictures of items and you must match those items with pictures on your game board. Whoever spots the most items wins! And then there’s I Spy 3D where you get to put on 3D glasses and find floating items.
KNex is an updated version of Lincoln Logs and their building sets are a blast for kids and parents. With the 250 Piece Value Tub, you can build anything your imagination can come up with – robots, cars, monsters, etc.
