Make a one shop stop for all your children’s holiday toy gifts at KidsQuest Children’s Museum! The Museum staff shares their gift picks for the holidays.

OGOBILD Pod, $49.99

I’m a huge fan of the OGOBILD Pod!  Throw some sheets over your structure, add flashlights and CD’s, and you, get a fun rainbow refraction project. Add paper, scissors, and popsicle sticks you get silhouette puppet play. Take off the sheet and wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap you, get a massive and crazy canvas for creative painting play. You can work in three dimensions, work inside a structure or out, the artistic possibilities are endless and that’s not even mentioning the team work and motor skills used for building! – Taya, Art Educator


Kid Made Modern Arts and Crafts Library, $39.99

The Arts & Crafts Library is amazing because it sparks my daughter’s imagination and she creates something new every time! – Lauren, Visitor Experience Manager

The Helping Hands and Sands & Water Fine Motor Sets, $14.99

They are fun and wacky tools to help promote fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination and great for exploring homemade sensory kits. *Bonus, they are great in developing pre-writing skills! –Andi, Reservation Coordinator

Rosie Revere’s Big Project Book for Bold Engineers, $14.95

My children (3 and 5) love its sister story, Ada Twist, Scientist, about a smart, curious young girl. This project book lets kids explore engineering and creativity! – Cassie, Marketing Manager

Dazzle the Dinosaur and Sequins Surprizamals, $10.99 and $8.99, respectively


I think the best gift in our store are the reverse sequined animals. They can be used for imagination play or you can cuddle with them at night. I also really like them because of the sensory processing component they work with all the child’s senses. – Kristine, Membership and Event Manager

University of Washington 101 and Seattle Seahawks ABC board books, $10.95 and $12.95, respectively

Now that so many of our friends are becoming grandparents, we love sharing a gift with them that they can share with the new grandbabies.  Since most of our friends are sports fans, the first board book for Seahawks and Huskies are perfect. –Shelley, Director of Advancement
