Cool New Toys for Little Ones -- But Really For Yourself

Posted by Caroline Fong April 16, 2014 05:00 PM

Spring is here! Or rather was here. It seems to be taking a hiatus in New England at the moment. I did just wake up to a sheet of snow covering all the cars in the neighborhood this morning.

If youíve had to bring the fun back inside, youíre probably hunting for some fun things to do other than Netflix. Iíve rounded up five cool toys that will delight the kids in the house, but also entertain the grown-ups -- even if the only kid around is your inner child!

1. Siege Toys Catapult ($40)


This nifty little miniature replica of a medieval siege engine is made from birch wood and assembles in 10 minutes. Itís suitable for children ages 12 and up, and that includes grown-ups. Donít be shy in engaging office warfare or duking it out in a friendly fight with the kids! Did I mention you can catapult gummy bears?
