Pinball Painter

Who needs batteries when you've got finger power?! This activity kit adds some major excitement to the act of painting, by letting kids shoot giant pinballs at globs of paint. The result is similar to carnival spin art, and the sheer joy kids get from zinging the balls can not be overstated. A simple, battery-free way to keep busy. (Alex, $18.90)
