One toy around our house that every one loves, no matter what age they are is Magformers. These keep my kids occupied for a good chunk of time, especially if they are trying to build something from the design book that comes with it. The only draw back to Magformers, is they are EXPENSIVE! Amazon is offering 50% off their 30-pc set today only, making them $25.49 (regularly $49.99). It's very uncommon to see these go on sale, particularly a sale this deep so jump at this chance!!
