iPads & TV become great babysitters in the summer, when kids are needing entertainment and parents are busy — but how about a screen-free option that engages children, and teaches them something, too?

Studio 512 loves Busy Bébés, a company run by Austin teachers Amy and Julie, which focuses on preschool learning skills. Fine motor skill work, tactile/sensory play, cognitive learning, STEAM and interactive literacy are included in every bag, which is geared toward kids ages 3-10. For Father’s Day, check out their “Retro 2.0” bag: it’s filled with old school favorites that dads will love passing on to the next generation! Inside, you’ll find:

  • Fine Motor Skills: Desktop Skee-Ball
  • Fine Motor Skills: Magic Snake
  • Cognitive Learning: Connect 4
  • Cognitive Learning: Vintage Card Game
  • Sensory/Tactile:  Mini Troll Dolls
