About Face

This is just a really cute idea: take photographs of found pieces of junk art in the shape of facial features and print them onto separate cards that kids can make faces out of! It’s a great foray into discussions about emotions, for example, “Can you use these objects to make a frustrated face?” But, it’s also a great vehicle for open-ended play. The price is a little steep for what is really nothing more than great photography printed on cardboard tiles, but the novelty might just be worth it. Though it says 3+, kindergarteners will be able to use their burgeoning storytelling and creativity skills to get the most play out of this toy. (eeBoo, $14.95)
