It’s that time of year again! Finding unique, fun and useful gifts, especially for the kid who seemingly has everything, is always challenging and can be downright stressful. Fortunately, Metro Mama is here to help you find the perfect gift for every member of your family!
FOR YOUR PRESCHOOLER
The KIBO robot kit, from KinderLab Robotics is a unique robot toy that engages even the youngest children in active STEM/STEAM Learning. With KIBO, 4-7 year olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO kids’ imaginations soar – all without requiring screen time! Designed for open-ended play, KIBO lets kids make almost anything – a character from a story, a carousel, a dancer, a race car – anything the child can think of. They plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button and watch their creation go!

FOR YOUR TWEENS
Slip into a zen state of mind with the mind-clearing magic of the Original Buddha Board. This relaxation tool encourages creative expression, being in the moment, and letting go using only water, a bamboo brush and a clean slate. With each brush stroke your worries are transformed into a work of art and then sent off into the universe as the water dries and the image disappears. The Buddha Board is mess-free, aesthetically pleasing in any room and perfect for all ages. Visit www.buddhaboard.com and Amazon.
