Seven Creative Gifts For Creative Kids-MainPhoto3. Magnetic Tin by Mudpuppy ($14.95)
(Ages 3-5 years)
These magnet tins—which come in a variety of themes, such as princess, robot, and monster—are kind of like paper dolls-meet-Frankenstein. Armed with backgrounds upon which to place your creation, kids can use tiaras, dresses, or—in the case of the Monster Tin, claws and limbs—to put together their vision, whether it’s designing a princess gown or creating a scaly, toothy creature. When they’re done, the magnets and backgrounds go back into the compact tin until next time.
