30 Fun Group Toys

From Communicative Kiddie Toys to Combative Tarantula Toys

— May 29, 2014 — Life-Stages
As many sibling-less children will attest, there's nothing worse than having to play by yourself, especially when it comes to group toys that require one or more players. With enough imagination, there are plenty of toys that kids can play with by themselves, but many of these group toys turn traditionally solo activities into group ones. Some fantastic examples of toys for one adapted for two or more include oversized coloring book pages or equipping a toy to be able to communicate and interact with others of its kind. Combining classic toys like race cars, bouncy balls and dolls with tech also makes them more interesting and multi-player.

By encouraging playful battles, communication and other interactions, these group toys help kids to develop friendships and strengthen these bonds.
