Better grab a latte to go, that report is due this morning and there's a call with the dog across the street after naptime. With the Fisher-Price My Home Office set, preschoolers are the boss of their own workstation — at home, the local coffee shop, or the moon. This eight-piece pretend play set includes a wooden laptop, four fabric "apps" to attach to the computer screen, a pretend smartphone, a headset for all those important business calls, and a to-go cup for kids to "sip" their favorite beverage.
When the ball hits the net or built-in target, a jet of water sprays out for an exciting surprise! The net attaches to a standard hose for fun in the sun or works without water as a regular soccer net for fun all year round. The built-in target is great for kids to practice their aim and eye-foot coordination. Kids will have a blast and get sprayed with water when they score a goal or hit the target successfully! Big enough for the entire family to play together.
Kids can pour themselves the coolest drink in town, made right at home with this counter-top Icee Slushie Machine. Looks and operates just like the ones you see in stores. To enjoy, simply combine water, ice, and a favorite ICEE flavoring syrup (sold separately), and let it do the rest.

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Moments collection is a brick-built playbook that opens to reveal a Hogwarts classroom playset from the Harry Potter movies.

The full range also connects to create a 360-degree Hogwarts play experience.
