Uncommon Goods Kid's Gift Set's Review

I was very excited recently to get to review some kid's gift sets from a great source, Uncommon Goods. I did not even know about this company and am glad that it caught my eye one day! Very unique and unusual gifts for children that should keep them occupied for hours and plenty of fun!

Here is what they sent me to review:

1. Portable Ping Pong Set
2. Tube Tots
3. Stencil and Pen Kits

The Stencil and Pen Kits is what you see at the very top. The one that I received has all kinds of ways that your child can make some great faces. They look like some of them could be pretty hilarious and I can't wait for my grandson to come over so that I can give these to him. They live in another state and his mom has been very sick and has had several operations and we had hoped by now she would be able to travel, but no such luck.

James is very gifted and should have no trouble with any of these Kid's Gift Sets and I am just excited and can't wait to see what he says. I have always prided myself on looking for things that most people don't have and Uncommon Goods is such a place! What wonderful things they have for you to choose from like the Tube Tots. I got the one that is a Fire Truck.

Besides the Fire Truck the other choices was a Tractor and a Train. And they are all in unique materials and shapes and the kid's put them together. I like that idea because they have to use their brain and really concentrate on how it is all put together so that it stays together if they want to play with it! So, it gives them motivation to get it right. I don't know who thought up all of this unique toys for kid's but I am glad that I found them so I can continue to keep an eye out for really different things.
Lastly, we have the Portable Ping Pong Game.  It may or may not be a little over James's head right this minute, but he is playing baseball and football, so I know he can figure this out! They have him in advanced classes because they say he is already reading at third grade level in the first grade! They said his math skills are amazing. But his mother worked with him from the time he could talk, so no wonder! Oh, something else I should bring up, I am not ignoring the girls but since I was sent boy's gift sets I guess I sorta forgot about them, but believe me, the girls have about just as many exciting Kid's Gift Sets for girls also! So, go check out the girls section here and you will be surprised at how much they have for them also!
If nothing else, his parents can take advantage of this game until he is ready to take over. I wanted to have something that hopefully they can do as a family and includes everyone.  Hopefully, this will take the edge off of all the medical drama and they can relax and just have a good time. It is pretty simple and easy to set up as you can see:
Uncommon Goods has other items besides kid's toys and products. They also carry products for women and men.  I briefly checked them out and they have some amazing jewelry for women, especially the bracelets. I love a beautiful bracelet! So, go check out the women's bracelets on this page to get a better understand of what I mean.
You can also find some interesting gifts for men on their site and I would encourage everyone to check them out because you might just be missing the best place to shop! They have the men’s gifts here broken down into gifts for geeks, sports and business men. Mmm, might have to check that out because I thought men's gifts were just that but now I gotta buy them according to how they are? I guess hubby would be a geek then, if we are talking about computers and techie stuff.
I mean, they even have home & garden, dining & entertainment, leisure, office, holiday, jewelry & accessories, for kids, for her and for him. I mean they have this all done up and divided up pretty good so that you don't waste alot of time on the wrong pages or the wrong subjects. Then once you get there to the main pages, they break it down even further, like for kids, they have it broken up into age groups. So, you could shop for a baby to 3 years old if you wanted or a child who is 6 to 10 or whatever their parameters are.
You can visit Uncommon Goods on their Facebook site to keep up with some daily happenings or sign up for their emails on Facebook or they have a Job Opportunities on there also. I noticed that they have a newsletter you could sign up for and they also have a catalog you can order to look through if you prefer that over internet.  You can also find them on Twitter and Pinterest, where you can see their boards and what all they like to repin and what's their favorite thing trending right now.
