Toys and games galore

It’s December and Chicago Parent has so many stories about toys and games that we couldn’t keep it all in one publication.

The NAPPA toy awardees spread through both the November and December issues of Chicago Parent, but you can find all of the toys, books, games, DVDs and other items right here in our roundup.

If you’re looking for out of the ordinary toys to challenge your children and stimulate their imaginations, check out our story on specialty toy stores in the city from our hoilday issue of Going Places.

Our video of the Chicago Toy and Game Fair also features out of the ordinary games and toys from small companies. Well, except the Squinkies. (What’s with those?)

And you can satisfy your kids’ urge to spend the evening in a toy store by heading to Cat and Mouse Store for their weekly game night. (The Cat and Mouse store is also featured in the ChiTAG viddeo.)

Let us know what you think. And suggest other toys and toy places you think Chicago Parent readers would like.
