I Play Toys and Hobbies compiles a trove of high-quality books and baubles poised to become cherished pals, stock a collector’s display cabinet, or impart the joy of learning. Lego building sets and Sanrio’s Hello Kitty line delight the young at heart or the young in years, and art supplies and classic wooden playthings from education innovators Melissa & Doug equip budding minds with tools to make anatomical models of themselves. Assemble a congress of soft Ty stuffed animals from the moon-eyed Beanie Boo series ($4.99–$9.99), or select a snuggly bedtime delegate such as Winks, a fuzzy elephant from the Pluffies series ($7.99). Miniature vehicles including model airplanes, RC cars, and boats confiscated from Lilliputian marauders provide stylish travel options for a quarter-size Tynies glass figurine ($3.99). Although not quite the Carrara marble from which Michelangelo carved David, plush fabrics still accurately render Smurf contours when filled with cuddly stuffing ($12.99).
