Merry Toys for your Little One

When scouring through the plethora of toys on the web and in store it can be overwhelming; but no worries, we’ve narrowed down the masses to these amazing toy selections!  These 5 merry toys will have your child squealing for joy this holiday season.  (You may even want to take credit for these instead of giving Santa all the glory 😉 )


New to the Hip & Healthy Kids storefront, Flipzles are one special toy.  Half puzzle/half imaginative play, each hand-crafted piece is educational and dynamic.  Not your typical puzzle, these sets are randomly cut (instead of typical square-ish shaped pieces) encouraging creative problem-solving.  When you take the thick solid wood pieces out and flip them over, your child will find an additional world of play.  Fly a dragon through the air for a standoff with a knight in shining armor, while the princess takes off on her unicorn.  The possibilities are endless.  Flipzles come in other models as well, such as the pirate ship, rescue station, house, farm and pet mansion.

Little Pim

I wish I were bilingual.  After many years of French I can get around Paris ok, but can’t conduct a long conversation.  I really wish I had the Little Pim collection when I was younger so my brain could map out another language more readily.  In fact, scientific research shows that learning a foreign language comes naturally for children ages 0-6 years old.  Little Pim’s award-winning language learning program for kids makes it fun and easy for children to learn a second language. With 11 different languages to choose from, Little Pim can help your child develop a lifelong love of language learning.  So say Merry Christmas this year in your chosen other language 🙂

HHK Pick! – The Complete Language Learning Backpack Set is the perfect gift and comes in Spanish and French.  (Go with the Language Backpack Set to explore Chinese, Italian and/or German.)


Green Toys™             

Green Toys™ are fun and environmentally-friendly treasures, using recycled milk containers as the main ingredient to create their toys. The milk containers are re-processed into high-density polyethylene (HDPE – one of the safest, cleanest plastics available). Everything from the collection of materials to the production of Green Toys™ occurs in Los Angeles, CA.  On average, every pound of recycled milk jugs used in the making of Green Toys™ saves energy equal to 3,000 AAA batteries. Green Toys™ products are tested by nationally recognized, independent, third-party labs (located in the USA). The toys contain no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA. They are also designed without any external coatings, eliminating the fear of lead paint.

HHK Picks! – The Toolbox is perfect for your little builder and Build a Bouquet is great for your budding florist.
