25 Artistic Toy Gifts

From Optical Illusion Coloring Books to Mexican Artist Collectibles

— December 14, 2019 — Life-Stages
These artistic toy gifts range from Mexican artist collectibles to optical illusion-inspired coloring books.

Appealing to art lovers of all ages, coloring books have greatly evolved over the years going from fun and kid-friendly to more mindful and design-focused. Examples like POKETO's Modernist's Coloring Book Vol. 2 showcase coloring books' design-forward evolution with minimalist and contemporary shapes. Daron's creative 3D crocodile puzzle is another standout, allowing children to build a fun sculpture while also encouraging creativity and customization. This is also the case with ooly's 3d Colorables line, a range of customizable costume accessories like wings and more.

Additional artistic toy gifts include O P P I's Piks toy range, a sensory line of creative building blocks that helps encourage concentration while fuelling creativity.
