Build Teamwork and Community Choose fun mystery-solving games to force kids to think logically, while beginners' board games help the youngest to understand turn-taking and rule-following. Traditional games such as backgammon, chess, checkers and Chinese checkers are available in beautiful heirloom sets that last for years while teaching logic, teamwork and sportsmanship. Work together to fly toy helicopters and planes guided by infrared remote control. Stock up on more board and card games to provide constant variety and to incorporate teens and adults into the fun and learning.

Magnetic building sets are safe for preschoolers and give them a chance to create wildly and easily with no template, letting their young imaginations run free.
