for 8 Year olds from Alex

We have been working with ALEX TOYS since we launched ebeanstalk. As soon as the first arts and crafts samples came to our office, it was love at first play. Alex packs more value into their art supplies than just about any manufacturer out there. Their arts and crafts are designed for little hands (they even have a brand called Little Hands with tons of craft ideas) which are great at building dexterity and great hand eye coordination. You can see this clearly in all their writing instruments and arts and crafts. And of course, their total dedication to safety first, means trusted toys, always. Alex Toys focus is arts and crafts, but dig a little deeper, and you will find trampolines, bath toys and super fun games. We hope you like the craft ideas as much as the toys from Alex Toys as much as we do. Did we mention that we have more arts and crafts from Alex Toys than any other manufacturer on ebeanstalk? There, now we did.

While we love their toys for the quality, play value and craft ideas, we also love them for their commitment to safety and course childhood development. After Alex Toys get the safety testing complete, then it is all about how to improve their art supplies, games and puzzles. They do this systematically - discontinuing the toys that do not sell, and always adding new exciting items to their line. Alex Toys design and create with learning and development in mind, and it shows. There is a reason they are one of the leading art supplies toy companies in the country. We love their products and are behind them 100%.

As far as we're concerned, there are 3 things we do to all Alex toys:

First we age match them. Actually, our experts do this. Perfect for childhood development.
Second, we really put the art supplies toys through the ringer for durability.
Finally, we test and test the craft ideas for PLAY VALUE. Meaning, the child has to engage with the craft ideas for a while. It has to go beyond basic art supplies.

ENJOY!
