The Busy Bee Learning Store is an extension of the Museum that allows families a chance to take a piece of Kidspace home.  We want to be a resource for you in finding the right toys, games, and books that engage your children and also stimulate learning and play.  The themes you will find on our store displays are related to Kidspace exhibits and programs; everything from the Water Vortex and Bee & Butterfly Garden, to the Early Childhood Learning Center and Live Animal & Bug Collection.



This is a list of Busy Buzzy Bee's favorites in the store right now!





For Builders ages 2 and up - sort, stack, nest, balance and create with these colorful hexagon sizes.  Each set comes with an idea booklet!




Sound Blocks

For Early Learners ages 24 months and up - develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination while playing with blocks, but these also make noise! Associate sound with size and quantity and devlop recognition of musical pitches.




The Robert & Mary Galvin Physics Forest

You will find many new physics related items in the store throughout the summer as we countdown to the opening of our new exhibit. Experiment with curiosities that baffle the mind - Quirky Physics, Magnetism Kits, and the Classic Gyroscope will help explain the laws of physics.





Sunprints & Sunography and Rubber Ducks

Just a few ideas for summer fun - Create photos on paper or fabric with the sun's rays; also take rubber ducky to the pool or to the Ducky Races at Kidspace this weekend!

Reminder – Member Appreciation is this weekend!  Kidspace Members will receive 20% off merchandise and are eligible to enter the members-only raffle May 26, 27, & 28.  The next member appreciation days are Thanksgiving weekend.
