The Mozart Magical Cube is a fun way to improve your baby’s spatial-temporal abilities. It utilizes the “Mozart Effect’ – a popular theory that listening to Mozart improves an infant’s ability to perform takes involving mental imagery and temporal ordering. The Cube features five large buttons that correspond to different sides of the cube. Each of the sides plays various instruments and toddlers can add and subtract instruments while the music is playing.
1-3 Year Olds
Stop spills before they start with the Loopa Gyroscopic Toddler Bowl. The bowl is weighted and attached to an outer ring that’s attached to another ring. The outside ring’s handgrips make for an easy handle for a kid to grab on to, ensuring their cereal bowl won’t go topsy turvy on them so quickly because the ring system keeps the weighted center bowl from flipping.
3-7 Year Olds
Use the power of the force to light your kid’s room with the Star Wars Remote Controlled Lightsaber Room Light.

Kids can choose from eight different color effects or an auto-spectrum via the remote control.
7-13 Year Olds
