The Toys and Tools We Want Our Kids to Have

The best quality toys and tools for a creative childhood
This post contains affiliate links.

Some of our favorite quality toys and tools come from Imagine Childhood.

I think it’s the combination of real and quality that makes us love them so much. They are the kinds of toys and non-toys we really want our children to have. Heck, they are the kinds of things we wish we had had as kids.

Everything I have bought from Imagine Childhood over the last year or so has become a truly valued part of our household. Appreciated for function, quality, and looks. I’m not exaggerating. This is the best.

Quality Toys from Imagine Childhood - drawing table, bake set, night lights, stuffed animals

Quality Toys and Tools for Kids

The drawing desk is something that sees use daily.

The little woodland twilight animal lights are magical and live close to each child at night.

The tea set is used regularly for tea parties with friends, both real and inanimate.

Mini Muffin Tin

The baking dishes are used whenever we make muffins, banana bread, cakes, and pies.

The tabletop paper cutter is sturdy and easy to use.

The best stuffed animals ever

Even the stuffed animals (“just toys”) are of the few that never go out of circulation.

Stowaway Bunny

They even come with us on camping trips!

I can’t recommend Imagine Childhood enough. I even feel a little evangelical about them. And I’m so happy and relieved that there’s a shop out there like this one to counter all the cheap plastic stuff out there.

    Beautiful toys! I bought my son a few of his own cooking utensils for Christmas. My husband thinks it’s a boring gift, but my kid LOVES to help me cook, and I think he’ll love having his own set of whisks, wooden spoon, and even a little safety knife to learn to cut.

Wondering if you have used the Water Color paints and/or the Artemis Wax crayons, particularly regarding the strength of the pigments. I would like to try the both, but at that price, I would love to hear someone’s experience with them first. What do you think of them? thanks!

    Real objects that are simply scaled down is a beautiful idea. My toddler loves plaing with “real” things and often shuns her toys in favour of a whisk and jug, the broom or mugs. The baking trays and tea set look fabulous.

    Thank you for your quality and creativity! These toys remind me of some I had as a child; now that I’m expecting baby #2, it’s brilliant to see what we can share with our children.

    I’m excited to read this post and learn of where to buy quality items for children. It’s always a struggle to find quality kids stuff. I’m a Early Childhood Educator and have a 4 year old son and I am always on the hunt for great places that put their heart into their toys.
    Thanks for the tip :)
