Toys To Bring To Church

Kids in Church

Christmas with a toddler, I’m sure you can imagine brings its share of challenges and joys. Challenges are such as wondering how much chocolate you should allow them to eat, and for yourself, how much alcohol can you drink on Christmas Eve, and cope with the earlier wake up on Christmas Day. The joys… well… there are toys, Toys, and more TOYS.

But what toys should you bring to church?

We’ve done a bit of research and have found the following (mostly toddler) toys that are possibly perfect for church:

Daniel and the lion’s den

DanielAndTheLionsDen

Includes a hole to play “Boo” through, an excuse to pretend to loudly eat Daniel, and a chance to make lion style “Raaaa!” noises. With no inbuilt noises, this would be a great toy to keep little ones quiet in church. Found at Amazon.

Bible Opoly Board Game

Bibleopoly

Do you enjoy those Monopoly inspired arguments? How about having an excuse to have those arguments in the back of the church hall? Bearing in mind this is “A monopoly version where cooperation and not accumulation is the key”, I cant help but feel that if youre sneaky enough to win at Monopoly, then you’ll win at this. Just remember to make your peace with each other before communion. Found at Amazon.

I’m sure toddlers would love playing with the money, or consuming the church pieces!

Plan of Salvation Ball.

HeavenBall

According to the product description, this is “A squeeze ball to throw around and learn about God’s plan for salvation.” Perfect for a game of catch during the service. Even better for toddlers learning how to throw. Bonus points if the vicar needs to catch it at any point. Found at eden.co.uk

Plush Jonah and Fish.

Plush-Jonah

Perfect for joining in with a baptism service… and the ensuring scream when the child in question starts to realise that the fish doesn’t actually swim. Found at eden.co.uk

Plush Noahs Ark 10 Piece Play Set.

Plush-Noah-Ark

All those animals! For so long!

Did they all get on all the time? Or were there massive arguments? Did a monkey try fighting a lion?

Bring this toy to church and let your little one work it out!

Found at eden.co.uk

Tambourines!

We’re told to make a joyful noise to the Lord! Make a joyful noise with these “Make a Joyful Noise Tambourines”. Great for use during sermons!

Make-A-Joyful-Noise

 

Found over at designed2bsweet.com.

Be David!

DavidAndGoliath

Dont just listen to the sermon / talk on David and Goliath.

Your kids could be David with this slingshot!

Again bonus points if they (you) hit the speaker!

Have you seen the Salvation Yo Yo?

Salvation YoYo - Not to be confused with a Christian Yo Yo... or a normal yo yo...

Salvation YoYo - Not to be confused with a Christian Yo Yo... or a normal yo yo...So. The Salvation Yo Yo…

Its not to be confused with a Yo Yo.
Or a Christian Yo Yo…

Its also more then a fun toy… according to the website:

Each Salvation Yo Yo is hand made and individually inspected for quality craftsmanship. Made of yarn, the five colors are carefully woven together to form the ropes and colored balls of the yo yo. These are held together by a sturdy suede leather handle with a cross embroidered on it.
Through this design, it is simple to share the Gospel in a clear and concise.
The colors represent: God (Gold ball), New Life (Green ball), Sin (Black string), Sins washed away (White string), Jesus Christ (Red handle with a white cross), Jesus’ sacrifice for us is represented by the two red strings leading from the cross connecting God (Gold ball) to the New Life (Green ball) available to all those who believe in the saving grace of Jesus.

Clear?

Dads Corner: Our First “Christian Toy”?

Noahs Ark Toy
So, when I talk about Christian toys, I mean those ones that are obviously either Bible based, or something else churchy.

Now I have nothing against those toys in general, but anyway… We were flicking our way through the “Babies Are Us” catalogue, and we came across this in the picture.

I guess all we need to do is leave the taps running and we can arrange our own little biblical flood…
