The Zen of Slime

Fluffy. Crunchy. Smooth. Sparkly. Iridescent. Irresistible. 

Slime has arrived, bringing with it a tangible sense of serenity. It’s a beautiful substance, enjoyed on many levels: Discover the alchemy of making your own; chill out with slime-playing videos; and/or get inspired by playful presentations of every iteration slime can take.

Whatever your pleasure, The Zen of Slime celebrates it with stunning art, secret recipes, interviews with Instagram sensations, and branding, packaging, and photography advice. Embrace the slime. Your journey has already begun.

Fooled Ya!

Discover the variety of ways our brains can trick us, from optical illusions to magicians' masterful use of misdirection to strategies used by con artists. Learn why you can't always trust your brain, so you'll be less likely to be swindled, hoodwinked, or bamboozled. Along the way, Brian Z. Brain, an illustrated comic guide, will help explain how your mind works.


Utter Nonsense

Utter Nonsense: Family Edition is a hilarious, family-friendly card game where players combine silly voices with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous.
The game contains 50 Accent Cards and 450 Phrase Cards which players combine and act out. You don't have to be good at accents and the combinations don't need to make sense. Players are encouraged to improvise and make the phrases their own because the best performance wins the round. 
Age 8 is the suggested starting point so that kids can read the cards, but the humor is appropriate for all ages. Both kids and adults will have fun playing the game!
Sold exclusively at Target stores and online.

Creation Crate

Finding a unique, thoughtful gift for kids can be quite a challenge during the holiday season. Why not gift the kids in your life something fun and useful? Creation Crate is a subscription box service that improves tech literacy with both children and adults, without the intimidating technical lingo.

Beginner friendly, each project is designed to increase in difficulty each month so that users can be fluent in the language of technology by the end of the 24-month curriculum. Projects range from building a mood lamp to a memory game focused on programming, to learning how to input a distance reading from an ultrasonic sensor.

Unlike other technology subscription boxes, Creation Crate uses raw electronic components, offering users real-world skills. Subscriptions start at $30 a month with 3, 6, or 12-month subscription packages to choose from.

Great tips, it is actually very important to buy children useful gifts that could develop them. My daughter, who is 9 years old, I often buy children's detectives, from which she is crazy. To my youngest son, I often buy children's wooden toys from the site woodencaterpillar. This helps him to play safe toys and develop
