science & discovery
From very young, children show an interest in discovering the world around them. Kids that watch ants travel their path, are fascinated by lightning storms and love to see if things float are all enjoying science and nature in motion. Toys that let kits explore kinetics, magnetics, gravity, gears and more make great gifts to keep inquisitive minds engaged and learning. See our Science and Discovery activities and toys from top brands in learning like Educational Insights, Melissa & Doug, MindWare, Quercetti, Osmos and more. Jigsaw puzzles and 3D puzzles from Ravensburger bring architecture from around the world right to your home. Snap Circuits brings out the possibilities of a future electrical engineer in your family!
