Popular in the work place as coworkers shoot one thru the air over their unsuspecting coworkers heads and. Many funny videos of these being shot of can be seen on YouTube.
#9 Lincoln Logs Bicentennial Edition
Lincoln Logs are a classic gift kids of all ages love to play with them. Lincoln Logs can help you reminisce too when you were a child playing on the floor building a cabin. The problem with modern Lincoln Logs are many of them are made of plastic and when you do find the wood ones available they are a different shade of stain than they originally were.
Lincoln Logs are one of those toys that even the grandparents get excited about. Grandparents can play with the Lincoln Logs and enjoy them as much as your child. The best part of Lincoln Logs is that they do not use batteries and when the kids ar eplaying with Lincoln Logs Dad will still be able to watch his TV.
Lincoln Logs are on of those timeless gifts. They can take years of abuse and still be passed on for the next generation to play with. When buying Lincoln Logs don't choose the smallest set available. The more pieces the better, however, if you buy a 400 piece Lincoln Log Set you will spend a lot of time helping your kids pick them up off the floor to put back in the tin.
The Lincoln Logs Bicentennial Edition are made of real wood and are stained the same shade as the original Lincoln Logs. They come in a collectable tin. Lincoln Logs are always a great gift for kids.
#10 Child Safe Archery Set
The Child Safe Archery Set sells for $39.99. It is a bow and arrow set, a quiver and a target. The arrows are suction cups so you will not have to worry about the safety of you pet cats. The Child Safe Archery Set is good for helping kids with their hand eye coordination but more importantly the Child Safe Archery Set is a lot of fun for kids.
