Oriental Trading has really grown over the years. They now offer so many high end products – still at great values. Their new MindWare line up of toys, is just one example.
With 26 grandchildren, I’ve become somewhat of an expert (in my humble opinion) in recognizing great toys for children of all ages. Toys that are fun to play with, are well made and provide a learning experience for the child/children who will be playing with them. I was extremely please with the items that I received from MindWare Toys !

One of my granddaughters really is a mommy’s helper. This little girl is willing to lend a hand with just about anything that needs to be done. I was so excited by be able to get some things that I know she will love AND that will truly be used.
