Find fun, creative toys this holiday season

Looking for creative, fun toys that promote unstructured play this holiday season? Mara Kaplan, one of the co-founders of the Center for Creative Play (and longtime friend of KaBOOM!), has set up an Amazon Store connected to her website, www.letkidsplay.com. The store is filled with open-ended, creative, and fun toys.

"A majority of the toys are made of natural materials," she says. "There is very little plastic, plugs or batteries. Many of the toys are appropriate for children with disabilities. There are hundreds of suggestions of toys you may have never seen before."

She's highlighting one toy from the store each day on her website, http://letkidsplay.blogspot.com. Check it out if you're looking for recommendations for the holiday shopping season!
