A fairy tale is defined as a children's story about magical and imaginary beings and lands, where improbable events lead to a happy ending. Fairy tales often involve elves, hobgoblins, dragons, fairies and other magical creatures. One fun, magic filled story kids love, is Jack and the Beanstalk. A classic fairy tale with magic, imaginary beings, improbable events and of course a happy ending (well for Jack, maybe not so happy for the giant!)Kids love to read these well known stories.They delight in a parent's grumbly voice repeating an ogreish Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum". It's even more exciting to act out a favorite well loved story. Let them dress up and pretend to be Jack or better yet a big, mean giant who's trying to eat you. Here's another idea for creative activity for the little ones. "Build" a story using wooden blocks. Illustrate in 3D your family's own version of Jack and the Beanstalk using a wooden block set. Build the beanstalk, a giant's castle, golden egg laying hen, harp and of course the giant himself all from some simple wooden blocks. Blocks are a creative, natural and educational toy that provide hours of fun for kids! Build with blocks today and let these classic toys tell a classic tale!

"I Have A Dream", so said Martin Luther King Jr. in 1963. Dreams are the beginning of all great ideas and accomplishments. Creative, successful people have dreams. They think outside the box. Are we letting our kids dream? Dreaming involves imagination, creativity, and solving our problems in new and innovative, courageous ways.We need to promote children's natural tendencies to dream, create, imagine and innovate from the earliest ages. How do we do that? Provide them with imaginative toys. Toys that don't just entertain them but require the child to add their own spark of imagination. Imaginative toys such as wooden blocks are dream makers! 

So Let's Make Some Dreams!
