Dim sum play dough kit$39, with all sorts of dumplings and baos.
A collaborative whodunit game$24, where you work together to figure out which fox stole the pot pie. We’ve played this a hundred times, and it’s legitimately super fun.
Speaking of detectives, Anton and I recently discovered Sleuth & Solve$14, a VERY engaging series of books where you figure out mini mysteries based on logic, facts, etc.
Spy glasses to see what’s behind you (!), $12 for three.
A magnetic world map$58, to inspire wanderlust and since they’re already asking about big issues.
Frozen playable theater with four backdrops and 12 characters. $26.
Cool Swedish candy$14. How great is the packaging?
And a Coke (or whatever treat they’re not normally allowed to have) and permission to drink it. $2/priceless.
