Open-ended and Interactive Toys Gift Ideas 2018

I know, Christmas is just around the corner and this post might be a little bit late. But I am doing this gift guide not only for Christmas but you can gift your kids these items for any occasions.ย 

Please save this post as I will keep on updating the list.ย 

I am that MOM.

I am that mom who’s raising an unplugged kid and following Montessori approach. So I am picky when it comes to “TOYS”. My daughter can only buy toys when it’s her birthday and during Christmas. So I always get the interactive toys that will be beneficial for her.ย 

Open-ended Toys

1. Gummy Box PH


What do I love about it?

  1. Unplugged play- your child can create, explore and play with all sorts of colorful materials.
  2. Creative learning- your child will engageย in hands-on activities that will encourage them to open-ended thoughts.ย 
  3. Convenience- all the materials that you need is included in the box already.ย 



The GummyBox is an activity box filled with exciting hands-on projects that aim to inspire creativity and learning. For kids aged four and up.

Zoe is just 3 and half years old but totally enjoyed the Let’s go fishing mini box. Watch our unboxing video below and join our giveaway now!ย

I am so thankful I got to know about this MOLUK toys because they are powered simply by a child’s imagination.ย 

What do I love about it?

  • It is sustainable products that don’t just entertain kids on a superficial level but invite real interaction.ย 
  • It is innovative and versatile open-ended toys
  • There’s no ON and OFF switches, batteries or complicated instructionsย 

You can also watch how Zoe plays on it in my video above.



What do I love about it?

  • The open-ended nature of Bilibo toys turns them into perfect accessories and versatile props for imaginative play.
  • The abstract objects trigger the imagination and children will use and interpret the toys in ever new ways.
  • Bilibo toys provide countless opportunities to experience and explore many basic laws of nature.

You might wonder what’s special with bilibo? Why buy your child one? Yes, it might look like a boring toy but Zoe loved it because she can do whatever she imagines. She can be a turtle, she can spin inside the shell, balance herself on it and so much more! Watch her play on the video above.ย

  • Lastly, all the items in the set are realistic baking toys to inspire imaginative play.
