Kid-Tested: The Best Toys and Gifts for Preschoolers
No mystery here -- want to know what your three-year-old would love for the holidays? Let him play with every new toy on the market and see what he likes! We sent lucky kids ages 3 to 5 home with mountains of toys and instructions to report back what they thought (ok, Mom got to weigh in, too). Here are the best-of-the-best -- kid-tested so they’re guaranteed to thrill!
Be a Bug Spy
Wait? Kids get to gawk at bugs all day without them coming loose in the house? Sign us up! This see-through -- and magnified -- ladybug habitat lets little bug-a-philes see the insects from all angles. Each kit comes complete with a fun-fact booklet and a coupon to receive ladybug larvae and food. ($14 at Amazon)
