pocket microscopeYou know that feeling you get when you give your child an "educational" toy and you see that brief look of disappointment flash over their face? (Just before they recover and give you that polite thank-you, hopefully.) And you know that puzzle is going to end up at the bottom of the toy chest, as usual. Well, I've just been to the International Toy Fair, and I combed the place for super-cool, non-electronic educational toys that got me excited. These are toys I think my kid would be excited about (or would have when he was younger). Here are eight fun toys that get your kids thinking way, way outside the box.

My daughter was just talking about how she is doing something with Owl pellets at school in science class the other day. She is 8. I love toys that are fun and educational... though I think I'm not buying that particular one for home!
