First, the most obvious winter toy: the sled.  Click here to check out some beautiful snow sleds for people who are serious about having fun.  Even if you’re just a casual sled enthusiast, you will know that there are several kinds.  The Flyer Sled, with its rails and wood body, has a very classic look.  This winter sled is definitely never going out of style.  And for more of a European/Snow Lodge feel–go for the toboggan.  The kick sled is one you may be less familiar with.  Click here to check out this sled that you actually sit upright in.  All these sleds are missing is you and a cup of delicious hot chocolate!

If you’re not willing to brave the cold for some sledding fun, then you’re going to have to think about some indoor activities.  Click hereto check out a wide array of board games.  There are some unique games out there, like the  Bostonopoly Board Game which, you guessed it, is all about Boston.  And you can check out the classic game like Scrabble and Clue in fancy Nostalgia Tins by clicking here.  Winter is a long season and it’s worth getting real swanky when it comes what you do while keeping warm inside!
