It's that time of year again when kids will be heading back to school. Whether you are in school or just a lifelong learner, our Marbles University featured products are fun and interesting products that will keep your brain sharp for school or the University of Life Toys are a great way to spark creativity. They automatically put us into play mode. According to Stuart Brown, author of Play, the act of play stimulates a variety of brain regions and integrates their function. This means play can be a great overall workout for your brain and can also help you strengthen your creativity, fine motor skills and critical thinking skills as well. We have some cool new products that are a great catalyst for creativity. The Playable Art Ball are a classy looking fidget toy that you can manipulate into to various shapes and designs. You can detach these colorful, wooden spheres to arrange them in a configuration that you like or move them around in the order they're in. Playable Metal is kind of like having a set of grown-up Legos. In fact, you might actually see grown-ups fighting over it because they want it on their desk. These aluminum alloy blocks have patented connecting mechanisms that give you the flexibility to create whatever you want. The blocks come in five different shapes with multiple facets that can be connected with specially designed screws. Turn your creativity loose and construct robots, animals, cars or anything you choose. Magformers come with 30 magnetic triangles and squares that you can use to build cook 3-D shapes. These powerful magnets are encased in plastic so they are safe for kids and they adhere on all sides no matter how you align them. You can also take pieces and lay them flat and pull from a center point and watch them connect and take shape.
