Crorey Creations has also recently introduced a My Ribbon Barrette Maker, a return of the popular 80’s barrette-making trend.

2.    Break Open Real Geodes Science Kit – Also on the list this year is the perfect gift for that budding scientist. The Break Open Real Geodes Science Kit allows kids to crack open geodes (which were formed millions of years ago when prehistoric volcanoes erupted and gas bubbles were trapped in lava) to discover incredible crystal caverns. The kit includes safety goggles and 15 geodes from 3 different mines, which might contain quartz, fluorite, calcite, or even amethyst crystals! Geodes range in size from 1.5"-2". The Break Open Real Geodes Science Kit has won the 2011 Dr. Toy 10 Best Educational Products Award, 2011 Dr. Toy 100 Best Products for Kids, 2011 Parent Tested, Parent Approved Award, 2011 Product of the Year, Informal Education Products and Creative Child Magazine's 2011 100 Best Products for Kids Award.
