The internet of toys.: Angry birds, Stupid kids. Envisioning interactive toys which don't use screens

I have a 4 year old. SHE IS AWESOME! She loves making pancakes, drawing flowers, building forts, climbing (anything), writing and reading stories, and playing princess (unavoidable). But she'd rather be playing with my phone. I *almost* never let her, but it's there. And it is addictive. As the first generation of parents who grew up steeped in video games, how do we handle this? Can we create immersive experiences which entertain children and inspire them that don't involve the zombie gaze of using screens? The internet of real things. Let's design some great ideas together!!!
