Manhattan Toy and Fun!

Hi Neighbors!

Manhattan Toy has come out with a new line called, Imagine I Can...  this new line includes, craft, imagination and games.  I received the Secret Agent Spy Gear and the Sew Sweet.  These come in little suitcase type tins.  the toys are for different age groups.  The Secret Agent Spy Gear is for ages 3+ and the Sew Sweet is ages 8+.

Secret Agent Spy Gear ($20)
Inside you will find:
1 Secret Agent ID Card
5 Clue Cards to Decode
Secret Message Decoder
Fabric Pouch
Spy Corner Scope
Pretend Play Invisible Ink
Pretend Play Finger Print Powder Bottle
Top Secret Blueprint

Finger Print Powder, Invisible Ink, ID card and Codes with Decoder Wheel.
 The Finger Print Powder and Invisible Ink are empty.  My husband actually tried to trick some of our children to think there was actually invisible ink in the container.  He failed! :)
Taken looking through the corner scope.
This is perfect for your little one to play.  They can imagine they are a secret agent with codes to decode, a blueprint to follow and of course the Spy Corner Scope.  With the Spy Corner Scope they can see around corners. Even my older children thought this was fun.  They could spy on each other without being seen. Fill out the Secret Agent ID  Card and add a picture!  Send your child on a secret mission!  This will hold their attention without placing them in front of a TV, to me that means alot.

Sew Sweet ($20)
Inside is:
Paper Sewing Template
6 Sheets of 5" x 7.5" Felt
10 pre-cut Felt Shapes in Organza Bag
3 Embroidery Floss Colors
4 Sewing Needles
Measuring Tape
Felt Storage Case for Sewing Tools
44 Assorted Beads
Filling and Embroidery Thread.

Felt Shapes.

Sewing Kit

Patterns, there are more than one.

Felt and Beads

With this kit your child can begin to learn to sew.  They will be able to create several little projects.  My daughters have all learned to sew (on a machine), and this is a great beginners project.  As a matter of fact my youngest has always wanted to learn to sew by hand.. so here we go!  The only hand sewing I do is buttons or small rips and tears.  I have hemmed pants by hand, but I would not say I am the best at it.

The Imagine I Can Series has several different kits to choose from:
There are four choices in the Role Playing, like the Secret Agent Spy Gear and Feel Better MD.  In the Games you will find, Castle Climb, Caterpillar Connect, Cheese Chase and 3 others.  Then take a minute to look at the Make It Myself, Create and Color Puppy, Create a Puppet Lion, Lace and Play Ram, Creative Color Sticker Clings, Pet Rock Pals, and Sew Sweet, plus 12 others.  Be sure to visit their website to see all of the Imagine I Can line.

Manhattan Toy has succeeded in providing a new line that I feel parents can safely choose for their children's pleasure.  This will provide your child with hours of learning and entertainment.

A Little about Manhattan Toy:

All of our products, from the newest concepts to our time-tested classics, are innovatively designed to inspire imaginative play and delight our consumers large and small.
OriginalityFounded in 1979 by Francis Goldwyn (grandson of motion picture studio owner Sam Goldwyn), Manhattan Toy pioneered the use of non-traditional fabrics in toy design and introduced delightful new body styles in soft toys. Although Goldwyn is no longer involved in the ownership of Manhattan Toy, we remain true to his vision of marching to the beat of a different (toy) drum.
