Raising boys is one of the most fun jobs in the world, because a little boy’s world is full of fun and imaginative play. As moms it is our focus to keep their imaginations going all the time to build confidence and creativity in all areas of their life. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by giving them toys that really encourage learning through play. As parents, we know that kids learn best when they’re having a great time. We also know that imagination is the seed that grew every great invention and innovation in our world.
Inspire Imaginations with Battery-operated toys
Battery-operated toys are a great way to spur on the imagination of your youngsters. For our boys, playing with battery operated building sets gives them a great base to learn how machines work. We love watching them take a basic kit and then reinvent it by combining with other kits. A simple spider turns into a family of spiders, or a dinosaur in no time.
Building creations with their battery-operated building sets doesn’t just allow them to unleash their imaginations, it also helps them build skills that will last a lifetime! Skills like hand-eye coordination, critical thinking and the ability to develop complex plans. It also helps develop math and science skills. Don’t believe me? Grab any battery-operated building set, sit down with it for an hour and you’ll see how much you learn in just a short time! Of course, you’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even realize how much you’re learning!
Since learning to build things is a great way not only to fuel our kids’ imaginations, but also to build their desire to learn more about engineering in the future, playing with these battery-operated toys is actually an important part of building their future. When we take the time to create something with our children that is lasting, it can not only be fun in the present but also impact their future. Our little budding engineers love unleashing their imaginations and reinventing new ideas from simple kits, and we love seeing them in action. Giving your kids fun ways to learn means you are preparing them for a successful future.
With battery operated building sets motors, high quality batteries are a must. Running a battery pack with their machines for several hours at a time as they change and invent new creatures or tools can drain batteries fast. By grabbing the Duracell batteries we have, we are guaranteeing not only that their creations will work, but they will work for longer.
Duracell makes play time something we as moms can feel confident about with our kids. Not only can we provide them with great battery-operated toys to spur their imagination for more play, we can do so without worry when using the Duracell brand.

My niece fascinates me with her imagination. No batteries required. But she does have battery operated toys and we try to use as many rechargeable ones as possible because they have gotten so expensive and toys just seem to drain them.
i get my batteries at Costco because we go through so many
My kids love their toys that move. Always fun to see machines working.
I’d probably say their cars that require batteries. They come up with the most creative racetracks for them!
My kids are very creative. They love to find new ways to play with their old toys. They love their battery operated toys.
M kids imaginations reach to places farther than I could have ever imagined! We also have lots of battery operated toys.
nice post. thanks for the share.
When mu daughter was little she had a small robot that would ask her questions and play games with her… This is such a fun and educational battery run toy we all had fun with it.
We have a new Hexbug Robotic Toy that I cannot wait to put together with my daughter. Creativity and science and imagination and well, so much!
I try not to buy too many toys with batteries. Batteries can be kind of expensive and they die too often to afford too many battery operated toys.
My boys have grown to an age where their imagination is powered more by electronics than themselves. Which is sad. We even limit their electronic time, but they still prefer it.
My daughter however has the most creative imagination and rarely plays with electronics. She can keep herself entertained just with her fingers, acting out stories and whatnot.
Duracell are all over my house, for our mouses, headphones, remote control, etc etc they are so reliable!
It’s always nice to keep some backup Duracells around for the kids’ toys. My son always needed them for his remote control cars he would drive around cities he built with Legos.
I best my daughter would love to tinker with some battery operated sets, fun open-ended play.
With 5 kids I think Duracell definitely makes the toys last longer for more playtime! Definitely a must!
Right now, Duracell is powering a lighted helmet my son bought at the zoo. It helps him feel like a little explorer.
My son has quite the imagination! It’s crazy! In fact, he’s constantly pulling out batteries out of our drawers to add to his imaginative play.
We have lots of battery operated toys that my kids use to power their imaginations. One of their favorites is the Zoomer dinosaur.
It seems like almost every toy we have runs on AA or AAA batteries. We always buy the Duracell packs at Sam’s Club so we have them handy.
My son uses tons of battery operated toys. I personally hate buying batteries because they’re so expensive, but I can always count on my mom to have a stock pile around her house.
We have tons of batteries in our extra drawer. My kids go through them like crazy!
My son is only two but already spends a good part of his day building with blocks. I can’t wait until he is bigger and we can build elaborate structures and machines together!
I love just sitting back and listening to my kids play. I mean, when they really play, not on the ipad. It is so funny to hear what they come up with. I love their imaginations…
At this point, my son’s wireless Xbox One controller powers his imagination. I actually don’t mind. Some of those games are amazing, and they have great stories.
I think it depends on the child. My little one has the best imagination I have ever seen.
