Oh what fun it is to open a Christmas stocking on Christmas morning and find it filled with fun educational toys to keep children busy and learning through play. Check out this year’s choice of educational stocking fillers for kids, where you’ll find great stocking ideas and gifts for 3 year olds and up.

GeoSafari Jr. Kidnoculars (Ages 3+)

Explore the outdoors and nature with Geosafari Jr.® Kidnoculars, the focus-free binoculars for 3 year olds and up. Perfect for preschoolers, Kidnoculars have enlarged, focus-free eyepieces that are more than three times the size of ordinary adult binoculars. The smooth, comfy placement guide enables children to position the binoculars just right so they can see the wonders of the outdoors up close at 2x magnification. Available in green or pink, these binoculars for kids come with a breakaway neck strap for safety and convenience. They’re made from durable plastic so they’re ready for any outdoor learning adventure!

Coding Critters Pet Poppers (Ages 4 +)

Looking for a STEM stocking filler for 4 year olds? Coding Critters™ Pet Poppers Pepper, Ripper, Dash and Zing each come with a fun launcher house and full colour story book that take children on a STEM adventure, making them the perfect addition to any Christmas stocking!

Through play, children learn basic stem concepts including cause-and-effect, force and motion, and problem-solving. When they aren’t zooming around their own STEM stories, they’re compatible with the original Coding Critters robot pets Scamper, Ranger, Rumble and Bopper.

Colour by Playfoam Unicorn & Dragon (Ages 5+)

Create a mythical work of art that can be done and displayed over and over again. Choose a Playfoam® Dragon craft kit or a Unicorn craft kit – or why not have both! Each Colour by Playfoam kit comes with a frame, 5 colours of Playfoam, and a squisher tool. Kids use the squisher tool to push squishy, squashy Playfoam into the frame’s design helping them to practise fine motor skills such as the pencil grip.

Child-friendly Playfoam never dries out, so the work of art can be displayed until your child is ready to scoop it all out and start again.

Playfoam Pals Snowy Friends (Ages 5+)

Playfoam® Pals™ have two things kids love: surprises and collectables. The Snowy Friends series is an ideal stocking stuffer for Christmas. When kids unwrap a pod and dig into the special edition Playfoam, they’ll find one of 13 collectable winter-themed Pals hidden inside. Stock up on Playfoam Pals Snowy Friends 2-pack, 6-pack or 12-pack to fill all of your Christmas stockings. They’re ideal for your child or as a last-minute gift to pop in gift packs for friends and family. Playfoam Pals are also great for keeping kids busy and entertained while travelling.

Note: Possible colour transfer: Sparkle Playfoam® may transfer colour stain to fabric and plastic. Stains can be removed from tabletops using olive oil.

Playfoam Pluffle (Ages 5+)

Playfoam Pluffle™ is the squishable fluffy stuff with a mesmerizing lava-like flowing action that kids (and grown-ups) will want to grab with both hands. Perfect for sensory play and tactile learning, Playfoam Pluffle comes in 6 vibrant colours: Red & Blue 2 Pack, Pink & Green 2 Pack, and Yellow & Purple 2 Pack. It’s ready to use straight from the packaging. Simply pour it out, give it a squish and watch its slow flowing action. Playfoam Pluffle never dries out so the squishing fun never ends.
