Our favorite toy for teaching responsibility: Octopus Watch

2018 Holiday Gift Guide including the Octopus Watch

If you’re constantly telling your kids to eat breakfast, brush their teeth, or do their homework, sometimes you’ll need a little nudge! Enter the Octopus Watch, a watch that alerts your kids of their next thing to do. Parents can easily use the app to set alerts, and when it’s time for their next task, the watch vibrates. What a great way to foster responsibility, independence, and self-esteem!

Our favorite toy for STEM fun: Magna-Tiles

Kids love building, no doubt. We are such fans of Magna-Tiles. Surprisingly, it always provides hours of fun. Even if you have a set, you’ll want to add more to your collection. Magna-Tiles have even added different varieties including a glow set and Magna-Qubix, 3D cubes.

Our favorite game for younger kids: Shark Bite
