Review and Giveaway: Action Toys, Inc.

Because I am a full time working Mom, I definitely cherish the time I have with my girls on the weekend.  When I search for activities for my kids, I am partial to the ones that require them to be creative, use their imaginations and get outside!actionlogoAction Toys, Inc. has a great selection of toys that fit the bill for just about any age.  From woodkits to space voyagers, biology fun to  curiosity kits there really is something to interest every child.  Action Toys makes educational toys fun!

Lily received the Tie Dye Strings Curiosity Kit and the Design your own Pocket Zoo kit to review.  We had a blast doing both kits together, but her favorite wascreating her own Tie Dyed shirt! Watch the fun in our homemade video:

The Tie Dye String Kit sells for $6.99 and includes the following features:

• Lots of colorful string to dye the fabric of your choice (Shirt not included)
• Results in minutes
• 5 different colors, each string 28” long= enough for two great tie dye shirts!

Lily really enjoyed this activity.  I liked the fact that the dye was in the strings!  This project was not as messy as I thought it would be, but the gloves that come with the kit are very big and flimsy.  I would recommend having your own kitchen gloves on hand.  The kit took us about 30 minutes to complete and Lily is very proud when she wears the shirt she created!
