It is smart to shop early for those newer science toy products that are likely to sell out

With less than two months until Christmas, Discover This has identified the five most exciting educational science toys for Holiday 2011.These educational science kits are sure to be big hits when children unwrap their gifts this year. While each science kit on the holiday science toys list fits into traditional toy categories, such as chemistry sets and construction kits, they have been selected because of the innovative features that set them apart from other products. Each toy is brand new and has been released just in time for the holidays.
Discover This aims to provide parents and other gift-givers with early notice of products that will become increasingly hard to find as the holidays approach. “Our goal is to make it easier for families to find exceptional educational toys at a great value, so it is smart to shop early for those newer science toy products that are likely to sell out,” explains Alex Miller, President of Renaissance Retail, Discover This’ parent company. “This is particularly true with specialty toy products that aren’t traditionally available in local stores.”
Through its collaborative partnerships with leading science toy manufacturers, Discover This is able to keep the entire product lines of these top toy companies and innovative newer brands in stock and ready to ship the same day an order is placed, giving consumers a convenient shopping experience. Discover This offers the following highlights of what it expects to be the most sought-after items this holiday season:
