3. Play Doh – Noodle Making Mania Set (43% off today)
Sensory play, creativity, endless formations and a holy mess – which child doesn’t love play dough! The good thing about play dough for parents is that you can spend as little or as much as you like on the dough and accessories.
That said, a separate tray or a table like this one can be invaluable in containing the mess and creating a special play dough corner, the child’s own little space to create magic.
Check out the Play Doh Play ‘n Store Table, available at 30% discount.
4. Kinetic Sand (2kg) with Inflatable Sand Box, Storage Bucket and Molds (68% off today)
If you’ve seen a toddler on the beach, you know how crazy they are about getting their hands dirty in sand. You can bring the joy of sand play home with kinetic sand that comes in different attractive colors with a wide variety of molds to choose from. Like with play dough, our experience says try and have a separate box/big container or a table for sand play.
All these toys also make for wonderful Diwali gifts or birthday presents for our own kids or children of close friends and family. Grab this opportunity to save a load of money on these evergreen toys!
