Encourage Creativity with Alex

 Feeding the creative mind doesn't mean sidestepping education.  In fact, creative activities help develop and foster brain development and motor skills while encouraging kids to unleash their own unique perspectives and delve into a world of imaginative play.  Our line of ALEX craft kits and supplies, preschool puzzles and bath toys all offer a way of summoning each child's creative side while providing hours of entertainment for many ages.

ALEX Hair Chalk Salon

Parents Magazine has named ALEX Hair Chalk Salon one of the Best New Toys of 2014. The set includes everything you need to add streaks of vibrant, (temporary) colour to hair with easy-to-use chalk pens. (We’ve even noticed some moms really love it!)

 The set also includes a beading tool to add in hair beads to finish off a new, colourful hair style. And don’t worry; it comes out easily with plain old shampoo.  Easy instructions, five chalk pens, a beading tool, 24 beads, and hair elastics are all included.
