Affordable Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids: Manhattan Toy + Giveaway!


Imagine i CAN®, the back-to-basics brand from Manhattan Toy, offers the perfect stocking stuffers for your kids this holiday season with their selection of affordable products. When the assortment of Imagine i CAN® products arrived for review, I knew that Kenzie would want to start working on her projects immediately. The Alligator puppet has finally had it's last hurrah in our home as most of his scales fell off so he was gently sent off to another child to play with :)




The Giraffe and Lion Imagine I Can Create-a-Puppets were hits as I had imagined. Kenzie knew how to peel off the double-sided tape backing and apply it to the coordinating spots on the puppet parts. I helped in folding and attaching the sections to secure. The giraffe's string mane had a bit of a hard time staying on because Mason kept on running off with it. No glue or scissors needed which makes cleanup a breeze! Kenzie enjoys the giraffe as much as the alligator and is having loads of fun with it. What's neat about these paper hand puppets is that they are only $6 yet have so much play in them. You can create stories and make animal sounds as well as chase your little brother around the house with chomping actions. A great stocking stuffer as well as party favor idea. 

The Fish and Porcupine Imagine I Can Lace & Play Animals are actually pretty neat and build motor skills for my little Kenzie. Just having her punch out the holes to prepare the fish for play took a bit of time. She used her noggin and grabbed her chopsticks from the kitchen to help in the task. After all the holes were punched out, she added the sticker fish eyes and we were ready to lace. I showed Kenzie how to place each scale on top of the fish and to weave the lace up and over continuously until all the scales were in place. There was a bit of a learning curve but she got it and was excited when the fish was complete. What's neat about these lace & play animals is that you can play with them over and over again and in the interim, just tie off the ends. Another fabulous stocking stuffer idea for just $5! 


A small, portable game is the Imagine I Can Shape Stack. It arrives in a gift worthy tin. The object is to stack as many of the colorful shapes on the wobbly half sphere until it falls down. You roll the die to see what color to stack. This is a wee bit difficult for Kenzie so she's not fond of it right now. Perhaps in a couple months she'll master it :)
