Kids’ Ketch, the toy store for creative minds and active bodies takes pride in so many of our toys being “kid powered.” It’s more important than ever to give children a wide sampling of activities as they “learn through play.” Here are a few of our favorites.
“KID POWERED” TOYS AT KIDS’ KETCH
CALICO CRITTERS are timeless, classic toys that delight children and promote wholesome family values. These award-winning miniature animals and their life-like environments inspire imagination & creativity for hours of fun.
Let the kids role play in the familiar world of grocery shopping and preparing meals with their own miniature, chrome SHOPPING CART, the TEACHING CASH REGISTER, PLAY FOOD and the COOK’S CORNER KITCHEN.
FOLKMANIS PUPPETS look so real they almost come to life! All kinds of critters big and small fill the world with enchantment when playing with these puppets.
Big and rugged BRUDER TRUCKS are made in Germany and are built for toughness and years of play. From steam rollers to garbage trucks to dump trucks, BRUDER makes it and the kids love their realism.
WEDGITS construction toy may look simple but its capabilities are endless when it comes to building and creating. They’re simple enough for a two year old but can challenge a 10 year old.
MAGNATILES are “parent-recommended” magnetic building tiles that develop spatial, tactile, patterning and basic geometry skills. The tiles easily connect for hours of open-ended play.
Kids love our THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE WOODEN RAILWAY train table in the store play area, and we have an extensive selection of trains and sets to take home.
OLD TIME CLASSICS
People are thrilled when they see our old-time tin JACK-IN-THE-BOXES and yes, they still work the same way and play “Pop Goes the Weasel.”
You just can’t beat playing games like MONOPOLY, CLUE, SCRABBLE and PARCHEESI – just a few of our many games for ages preschool to adult, both new and old time classics, including great TRAVEL GAMES!
ACTION IS THE BIG ATTRACTION
People often wonder – what is a BILIBO? We say it’s like giving a kid a cardboard box. You’ll be amazed at what they come up with to do with it from spinning in it, to making it a garage, to using it as a step stool. It’s the perfectly versatile toddler toy.
It’s the new way to learn to ride a bike – by riding a BALANCE BIKE! The KAZAM BIKE has no pedals so the kids push with their feet, learn to balance, and off they go! What a feeling of accomplishment for the preschoolers!
Boing! Boing! We carry POGO STICKS in two sizes, one for the 6-9 year old bunch and one for the 9+ gang. Who can resist trying it?
It’s the epitome of “kid-powered” – it’s the PLASMACAR. This ride-on vehicle is propelled by the rider simply by moving the steering wheel back and forth. It’s not hard to pick up speed, take sharp corners, and really scoot. Race your friends!
CREATIVE ARTS & SCIENCES
Our broad selection of arts & crafts from makers like ALEX, CREATIVITY FOR KIDS, DO A DOT, and many more, provide hours of fun and the sense of accomplishment when seeing the finished product.
Encourage that interest in science with science kits from THAMES & KOSMOS, ELENCO, EDUCATIONAL INSIGHTS and others. Shoot for the stars with a TELESCOPE, dig for fossils, make chemical concoctions and so much more.
This is just a small sampling of what’s available at Kids’ Ketch. You have to see it to believe it!
