2011 Holiday Toy of the Day: 'Marbles the brain store' Facebox Art set

See also

Marbles: the brain store Facebox Art set is today's feature in my mom and kid-tested 2011 Holiday Toy of the Day series, which features toys that I have tested out with my kiddos, ages 5.5, 4 and 2.5 years old. (Read previous Toy of the Day features with more of my tested toy reviews HERE.)

This little box of fun makes a good gift or stocking stuffer for art lovers of all ages. Inside the nifty tin are plastic stencils that kids can't really break or messup (perfect) with shapes for faces, hats, hair, mustaches and more plus markers to start creating right away. The Facebox is such a clever little set, despite its simplicity. In fact the simplicity is what makes it so cool. You can have countless hours creating faces of people you know or ones you dream up. Or challenge kiddos to make ones of the people they see in the airport or on the airplane to pass the time during holiday travel! Marbles has so many fun things, it's hard to go wrong with anything from them.
