Sure, your kid has a sandbox shovel, but what about the big projects? Wouldn’t a steel crane come in handy? You bet it would. The base has three wheels and spins 360 degrees. How I wish they made one of these for grownups.

We went camping recently, and friends brought along this handy travel-Scrabble game, so we could play by the campfire. The tiles snap into their racks, and the ridges on the board are deeper, so you can even play while you’re in transit. Plus, it’s itty bitty, so you can slip it right into your backpack and still have room for the Scrabble Dictionary. Nerd.

A reader recommended this excellent balancing toy for kids who aren’t quite ready for bikes, but aren’t interested in their tricycles. If your little one is jealous of an older sibling’s two-wheeler, Rolli-Rider could maintain the peace. Thanks, Rocky!

This cozy, groovy high chair is easy to keep clean, comes with a machine-washable safety harness, and tucks right up to the table. When your baby is done with the high-chair stage, you can remove the tray and turn it into a booster chair. Later, it converts to a sleek chair for kids up to age six, which is right about when they’ll cover it with teddy bear stickers.

The paper products by D-Sharp are so charming, delicate, and artfully made, your breath will catch when you see one in person. There are party crowns for babies and grownups, and small towers to fill with candy. This crown says “happy birthday” in French, and is decorated with stars made of sheet music. So sweet. (Thanks again, Megan!)
