Experience nature up close with the Live Butterfly Garden.  An educational kit that gives kids the opportunity to observe butterflies through every stage of their lifecycle. Children ages four and up can observe five real caterpillars eat and grow to form their chrysalis and then emerge as Painted Lady butterflies. Children will love feeding the butterflies in their included observation habitat and then releasing them into the wild. Comes with a coupon to send away for five caterpillars. The caterpillars are hatched from eggs in a butterfly nursery and mailed to your home in a special clear container, complete with caterpillar food. On Sale on Amazon for $14.88.  I suggest adding this $6 book to go with it: From Caterpillar to Butterfly

Sure you'r local ToysRUs will have it - just call first, and ask if they will hold it for you! Includes 1 die-cast Hot Wheels car, 3M Command Strips and easy instruction poster, so you'll want to add more cars if your child doesn't already have them - and definitely can add some more tracks. 

Tres groo-vay. A new take on the old classic, again, I like these things because they get your child away from sitting in front of technology and gets them moving. The Twister Dance Game is on sale at Amazon for $42.  Everyone can learn dances by following the Twister spots to songs like "Till the World Ends" by Britney Spears or "Whip My Hair" by Willow. Or dance to your own music by connecting the game to any MP3 player. The spots are individual, not on the white sheet like we remember. Put the spots on the floor, hit the music and go.  

Nice: If you don't already have one, giving a kid this kind of art station will help develop their mind and soul in so many ways:

Hate to tell you but it needs assembly. That said, it looks pretty easy.
