Lakeshore launched its Gifts for Growing Minds product line, featuring more than 200 items, in which 20 are new for this holiday season. The full catalogue features items for kids ages 0 to 11, all designed to boost skills such as problem solving and emotional development.

All of the new, exclusive products were designed by a team of former teaches. New sets include:

  • Royal Kingdom Adventure Castle—This play set’s walls open to reveal castle chambers where a wizard counsels the royal couple, and knights and guards defend the kingdom. Features working drawbridge and dungeon door.
  • Take-Along Train Station—The set includes a bank, a post office, road signs, and trees to create a town. The 38 pieces fit inside the wooden train station.
  • Bedroom Design Studio—Kids can personalize the bedroom of their dreams with this design studio. The set includes fabrics, furniture, decorative wall panels, and more.
  • Snap & Design Monster Trucks—Kids can mix and match truck bodies, wheels, and accessories to build monster trucks, then pull back the finished truck, let it go, and watch it zoom forward. The set includes 15 snap-together pieces.

Customers can shop the 2018 Gifts for Growing Minds holiday collection at or at the 60 Lakeshore Learning Stores nationwide. To celebrate the launch of these new products, Lakeshore will donate $1 from every Gifts for Growing Minds order to, a nonprofit that supports classrooms in need.
