Toys foster children’s creativity, from the action figures that inspire fantasies of being a superhero to the wooden blocks that inspire fantasies of being an artisan woodblock maker. Let their minds run wild with this Groupon.

$89 for a Kids’ After-School-Class and Theater Package (Up to $207 Value)

The 45-minute classes introduce kids aged 4–10 to the fundamentals of either acting or chess. Kids who already know basic chess moves can dive into a class for advanced beginners and soak up lots of one-on-one strategy instruction from teachers.

Families and kids aged 3 and older get a peek at the museum’s collection of historic dolls, teddy bears, soldiers, and other toys during highly interactive 50-minute shows held on select Saturdays. Decked out in delightfully gaudy jewels and robes, Queen Marlene holds court over dramatic explorations of toy history, fairy tales, and fables with the help of other high-spirited actors.

The Toy Museum of NY

When you walk into The Toy Museum of NY, you might see a Raggedy Ann doll. And another. And then another. Through this head-spinning proliferation of Anns and other characters—from Shirley Temple to Howdy Doody to Mr. Potato Head—kids and nostalgic adults explore changes in toymaking trends. Much of the collection of hundreds of dolls, games, and figurines from the 1880s–1980s is behind glass, so little hands get their passport to this wonderland of playthings via Queen Marlene's Toy Theatre. Kids gather around her singing, dancing highness for an illustrated tour through toyland as they’re invited up on stage to don costumes, play instruments, and perhaps diagnose an ailing doll’s stuffing troubles alongside other energetic, quick-witted actors. They can also attend the Special Toy Invention Program and learn about the invention of such cornerstones of American childhood as the Slinky, the Etch-A-Sketch, the Frisbee, and the empty refrigerator box.
