We’ve reviewed and bought loads of toys by Spin Master over the years so I’ve pulled together a round up of their Best Creative Toys for keeping kids busy.

Best Creative Toys For Construction
Meccano is a classic STEM Construction toy for kids. They learn so many life skills by building the sets; how to read instructions, manipulate tools (which is brilliant for fine motor skills), problem solve and work as a team. It also helps to build up their confidence and patience and the satisfaction and pride at the end of a build is just beautiful to see in their faces!
There are kits for all ages with different levels of difficulty/complexity. Some like the Meccano Dinosaurs come with multiple models you can build (see video below for details).
Others like the beautiful Meccano Monster Ducati 1200s contain one more detailed model that once made you want to keep as an ornament. Some kits come with moving mechanics like the Meccano 4×4 Off-Road Truck and there are even amazing robotics you can build using Meccano like the amazing Meccano Max
My girls love kinetic sand. It is the most amazing sensory toy and loved by adults and kids. We’ve bought a few kits over the years.
The Rainbow Mix Set is fantastically creative and great for building sandcastles with that you can chop and squish. It comes with three primary coloured sands that can be mixed together to create the rest of the rainbow!
Another set you can buy that is super sweet is this Ice Cream Treats play set is super cute and brightly coloured!
And if your kids love building sandcastles then I can really recommend the Beach Sand Kingdom playset. This comes with a whopping 3lb bag of natural coloured sand which is plenty to make some cool sandcastles to squish. But if you want a serious beach look and feel do what we did and buy and extra 3lb bag!
Monster Dirt is part of the Monster Jam series and I have included it in the construction section as it comes with some lovely crunchy kinetic sand style dirt that can be used to build ramps and bricks for the Monster Jam cars and trucks to jump over. The cars them selves are beautiful to play with and have super bouncy suspension.
Best Creative Toys; Interactive Pets
Spin Master have an amazing selection of interactive pets that kids can have fun with. they generally involve pressing and tapping various parts of the toy to make funny sounds and light. A big part of these interactive toys is being able to care for them. This could be in the form of cuddles, petting, feeding and playing with them and depending on the toy and how interactive it is you’ll also find games and music are incorporated into the toy.
Best Creative Toys; Arts And Crafts
This is perfect if your kids love making friendship bracelets to give to their bff’s. Load the colourful threads on to the Kumikreator machine (make sure you follow the instructions carefully) and in just a few minutes you’ll have a perfectly made colourful bracelet for chums.
Pottery Cool Studio
The Pottery Cool Studio is lots of creative messy fun and and impressive to use. You spin your own clay ornaments and trinket pots using ready rolled clay that comes with the kit. Included are clay cutting and shaping forms that are used to create your pots. We were particularly impressed with this creative toy. Read our review of the Pottery Cool Studio here.
