Three Toys for Tweens

customized-rubiks-cubeMaybe you only have young grandchildren or have just become a royal granny or royal great granny? Congratulations if so…!

If not… and  your grandchildren are older than ten, but younger than thirteen, you have tweens to shop for. They are those hard-to-buy-for kids who are not little ones anymore, but neither are they ready for dating and makeup. Here are three fun toy ideas for those eleven and twelve year olds that will keep them busy.


Crayola Light Designer

This three dimensional toy allows you to create drawings from light. Drawing on the cone-shaped surface your tween will enjoy seeing their own designs. Create and save for later viewing or begin with a new design.


Custom Rubic’s Cube

This is an authentic version of the old favorite. But this one is personalized with six photos of your own choosing. There is added incentive to solve the puzzle and re-create the familiar picture.


Rock Out Headphones

These professional-sounding headphones come in a retro round shape. They are covered in either houndstooth or camo and are compatible with any headphone jack.
