The Crayola Crayon Maker– where you can transform broken crayons into fabulous multi-coloured new crayons. The machine uses high heat but locks until cool. Looks fabulous! Toys R Us was carrying, but not sure what supply looks like today
The Modello Pirate Ship model. Kids can build on their own -no glue or scissors required! Quality cardstock pieces must be coloured first so there are multiple steps and this can be a collaborative project among several children. Looks awesome and I plan to have my kids try it out!
