Eye Can Art: Kid-tested products for the serious enthusiast. These kits are much more inspired than Play-doh or bead kits. We tried the print making kit. Messy? Yes. Fun? You bet. Set some time aside. The start to finish project took more than an hour--hard for short attention spans. Next time I'll break it up in segments. The favorite part? Playing with the roller (the fancy name is brayer). Ages 4 and up. $24

Digital Concepts Crayola VGA Camera: Ohhh, I can't wait to give my budding Ansel Adams her first camera. She's been swiping my digital for ages and taking pictures (many of them quite good). Now she can have her own. The VGA resolution camera (640 x 480 pixels) can store up to 93 photos. Editing software included. 3 AAA batteries not included. Ages 4 3 and up--and no mess! $39.30

Build-A-Bear Workshop: For kids who lack the dexterity to make things, they can still play creatively thanks to a new interactive game from Build-a-Bear. This game for the wii system sends Bearemy and Pawlette Coufur off on adventure. They collect outfits, play games and find prizes. Ages 2 and up with supervision. $39.99
