With the holiday season in full swing we wanted to give you a heads up on what is hot this season from Alex Toys. From your babe to your tike to your creative child with a great imagination – we wanted to make sure you have everything you need under the tree.

Ready, Set, School: For those who love to be creative the skill building set ($29.99) for pre-school children is full of fun and activities that will last for hours. The 15 pages of learning fun with stickers, drawing, cutting and stencils is perfect to pull out on a rainy day or to play school with your child. We loved the easy wipe away learning pads complete with wipe away marker. Teach your child to tie with tie my shoe lacing. Scissors and stackable finger crayons are also included.

My Wall Easel: A perfect addition to any play room – the hanging easel ($64.99) turns any wall into a workspace or display area for your child’s art. It includes a paper roll, safety cutter, and four multicolored cups to keep your paint and supplies organized. Your artist will just adore this easel. We also love the fact that is comes already assembled and ready to use!

Mix, Stack & Farm: This is a great toy for your tot and the price is right – only $14.99. As your little one stacks the pieces to create a scene they are taught simple identification and counting while improving manual dexterity. The nine chunky, double sided wooden beads complete with a wooden base is a must have for your toddler. Check out the Mix, Stack & Splash and Mix, Stack & Beep! All are sure to be a hit.

First Snaps: The brightly colored, textured snaps ($17.99) with faces make for a great push pull motor skill game for infants. They can be tucked away in a stackable jar for easy storage. Our little ones were entertained for hours!

My Giant Floor Puzzle: With many awards under its belt we can see why it is a big hit. The 36” soft round mat ($32.99) is also a giant 17-piece floor puzzle. The puzzle pieces are big and simple making it easy for children to learn and put them together.

Round The Farm: Until now, we really didn’t know balls could be so cute. We love how you learn motor skills through catching, rolling and grabbing the super soft toy ($26.99). Roll the ball around and you hear the sounds from ‘Round The Farm’ as it features four farm animals in one. As you press the right ear of each animal you child learns their sound – Bark! Meow! Oink! Ribbit!

Sew Fun: We just can’t say enough GREAT things about this product as you discover the delights of sewing with this EASY to use sewing machine ($69.99) - perfect size for little hands. Be creative by making your own clothes and accessories as it comes with everything you need to start sewing right away! We were shocked by how simple it was to use – completely hassle free. It features adjustable stitch lengths, easy drop-in bobbin and two speeds that allow a safe and easy introduction for young sewers. The sewing machine is super lightweight and portable – it can easily be carried from room to room to find your inspiration to sew. You can use the included AC adapter or battery operated. It all easily tucks into a carrying case for perfect storage. Try making your own wrap around skirt with the 2 yards of floral fabric and ribbon trim included.

Spiffy Spa: The complete pedicure and slipper decorating kit ($21.99) for your little one who loves style. Decorate a pair of slippers with precut felt shapes that slip on over buttons. With 30 shapes included, 3 bottles of kid-friendly nail polish, 2 toe separators, over 100 nail stickers and a nail file – your girly girl is sure to have a good time.

My Art Case: This goes perfect with My Art Easel! Your artist can get to work with everything they need in one place. My Art Case ($19.99) includes 12 crayons, 12 colored pencils, 18 broad tip markers, 18 watercolors, 24 oil pastels, paintbrush, glue, scissors, white paint, ruler, pencil, erase, sharpener and sponge. It is great to carry on the go too!

Sweetheart CafĂ©: Little girls will love this 40-piece Let’s Play Restaurant set ($34.99) with lots of pretend plastic food for serving. They will love the convenient carrying case for take-me-along fun. They will have lots of fun dressing up with the waitress apron and hat.
