Two fabulous gift ideas @ Constructive Playthings

Originally $98.99, and on sale for $49.50, this Showtime Puppet Stage from Constructive Playthings looks like it would be so much fun for the 5 & under crowd! It is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next gathering. Let the kids put on a show and entertain the adults!

And, as a scientist myself, this one just tugs at my heart strings! They have the See & Do Discovery Kit on sale for $59.99, regularly $79.99. Recommended for ages 3 & up. “Seeing is believing and doing is discovering. That’s what this 58-pc. Science Center Kit offers children as they mix colors, change solids to liquids, experiment with objects that float and sink, and more. Includes a Teacher Guide.”

This just arrived in my email… Here’s a printable coupon for $10 off your in-store purchase of $50 or more at U.S. Toy/Constructive Playthings. If you haven’t been there yet, this may just suck you into the door. This store is packed with, well, toys, but also LOTS of great educational stuff too! You’ll love the fact that your kids will learn something while they just think they’re having fun.

If you’re homeschooling, be sure to check out their teacher supply section. Heck, if you’re a parent or grandparent, check out their teacher supplies! You don’t have to be employed as a teacher to teach; you just have to love a child.

Beyond toys, check out their carnival prizes, party decorations & supplies, Sunday School/VBS supplies, and more.

And here’s a tidbit of trivia… This company is family-owned and operated. They’re on their 3rd generation!
