Ada brought this down for me the other day. She made it out of modeling clay and Wikki Stix and paper and a toothpick and I think I see some of my hair wound in there. It reminded me why we are so lucky to live here. There is art everywhere in New York. I don’t do enough museums lately with the double stroller, but I am counting the days until we can get back to it. (Yes, I was one of those crazy people who dragged my two-year-old to the Alexander McQueen show). I love that our kids are so close to art here – and music, and dance, and food, and people…I Love NY!

These Imaginets are one of those perfect toys:
1. They are super fun for kids. (Ada plays with them for hours at a time). The cards provide patterns or kids can come up with their own ideas.
2. They are made of wood and painted bright colors. The magnetic shapes are smooth and substantial and thoughtfully designed.
3.The sturdy case contains all the cards and magnets and has a handle to carry. When the case is closed, (which can be accomplished easily by a three-year-old), the whole thing fits nicely on a book shelf.
4. The magnetic surface can also be used as a dry-erase board so kids can add habitats for their magnet animals.
Happy kids, happy parents.
