Super Embroidery Kit
(Alex $19.99 Score:) Packaged in a red felt bag with a pocket, this is a charming sewing set for beginners. There’s an embroidery hoop and one practice cloth for trying out stitches as well as a dozen colors of floss, scissors, needles, transfer patterns to iron on, felt letters, shapes, and pieces to decorate with beads and sequins. A clear stitching guide is included. They have even included some buttons for practical needle-work. Marked 7 & up, we’d say more like 9 to ’tweens. (800) 666-2539.

Connect Four
(Milton Bradley $19.99 Score:) Large enough to handle with ease and compact enough to take along for travel or the beach. A zip fabric case opens and the four-in-a-row checkerboard stands up; there is storage for the playing pieces. Learning this game of strategy gets better as kids become familiar with it. You can even stop in mid-play and continue a round later. 7 & up.
