World Map Doodle Pillow Case
While not exactly a toy, this World Map Doodle Pillow Case from Wicked Uncle will definitely make naptime and bed time more fun.

For moments when kids need a break from “screen time” this BeanBoozled game is a fun alternative. It's a board game of sorts that features a spinner and coordinating colored jellybeans. You spin the spinner, eat a matching bean as depicted on the spinner – and if it's a good one, you get a point. If it's an awful one – like dead fish or spoiled milk – you do not score points. Fair warning: The “bad” ones are the same colors as the “good” ones!
