Hape always comes through with eco-friendly toys that are as beautiful as they are fun, and Pallina is no exception. There aren't tons of standout games geared towards the 3+ crowd, and this one looks like a great prospect for a holiday gift that families can enjoy together.
Pallina players use strategy to remove their sticks from the basket without letting their balls fall. The game promotes fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and strategy. Pallina is made of bamboo with a felt base, finished with nontoxic paints and recycled packaging. $39.99 at Galt Toys.
