toys that encourage imagination {Flatout Frankie}

Top on my Christmas list this holiday season are toys that help enrich my children by encouraging creativity and imagination. I am over toys that come with a million pieces and don’t even get me started with all the electronic and noise making products. Sometimes I just want my kids to play with toys that are simple but still entertaining.

New Zealand based company; Flatout Frankie have a variety of fun and creative toys that are perfect for your kiddo(s) this holiday season. Whether you have a girl or boy you’ll definitely be able to find a product to their liking. All their toys are constructed out of 100% recyclable materials and super simple to put together.


We were sent the Princess Castle for review. Perfect for my princess-loving 5 year old and of course little sister, who likes to be involved in whatever her big sis is doing. It’s the ideal size for both of them to be playing with at the same time, whether it is together or separately. The castle is split up into four rooms and has windows and doors that open into the other rooms. It’s also easy enough for my oldest to put together and take a part, since it only contains four cardboard pieces.

My daughters are enamored with the castle and have played with it continuously since we’ve received it. I’ve even put it away every night and everyday they have asked me to bring it back out. I was surprised by how long my oldest daughter sat there and played with the castle and her princess dolls. I love watching my girls creativity and imagination blossom while playing with their castle. Such a simple toy but still so much fun.


All of Flatout Frankie items can be completely personalized to your child’s liking. Kids can color or paint in the pictures and designs on their products. When I told my daughter she can color in the pictures, she was beyond thrilled. She took her time and thought out how she wanted to color in each picture. Plus I got to help, which I really enjoyed.


Another reason why I love this product so much is that it is so easy to pull apart and put away, and I mean away like in a closet and out of sight. It comes with its own cardboard envelope for easy storage. The castle is wonderful for travel too. Since it lies completely flat, you can lay it in a suitcase without taking up much room or in the car for a weekend away. This will definitely be coming with us on future trips.

If you are like me and are looking for something unique and that enriches your child through creative play then definitely check out Flatout Frankie this holiday season. You can purchase Flatout Frankie products through their US distributor Little Modern here or some select stores. Keep in the know and follow Flatout Frankie on Facebook .

Special thanks to Little Modern/Flatout Frankie for providing a sample to facilitate this review. Opinions are 100% my own.
