What makes this holiday season different?  

Buy a toy that’s fun while also being mentally stimulating and educational. These are a great way to teach kids to take care of the environment – and show them cool career options too.

What about assembling a wind turbine or electric vehicle – or even a “21st century house”?! Yes, they can. Kits are available for kids from 8 years old up to build them and more – while also learning about how things work firsthand. 

Listen to Steve Aarons, CEO of Child’s Play Toys show Green Connections Radio Host Joan Michelson these cool kits and more.

You’ll hear:

  • What to look for in toys for the kids in your world.
  • What they learn from them and how.
  • What they cost and why going to a toy store with knowledgeable staff is important
  • What’s new in robotics, wind turbines, solar-powered cars and more – in toys!
