(4) Scientific Explorers Young science kit for young scientists

Chemistry

One of my favourites. There is no experience like discovering the wonders of natural science in your home. It gives the child hands- on experience in science and comes with reassuring stuff (like an instruction booklet) to perform their own experiments. Be careful not to lose it's many parts though, and some adult supervision is needed (especially when relating to messes in the house.) It's use may very well bring up many questions and instigate further interest in science. You can buy it at Amazon between $13.00 and $17.00, which is pretty good!

(5) LeapFrog Leapster 2 Learning game system

electronic game

You may be thinking at first sight, it looks like a typical handheld game system that has no educational benefit. But you'd be wrong. The Leap Frog Leapster 2 Learning game system is educational software wrapped up in an appealing fun package. This, like the tablet, comes with a huge library of software that each deals with the improvement of your child's learning capabilities. You can even monitor their progression and performance. The only issue with this is that to obtain extra storage for mobile use, you must buy a separate SD card.No matter, at prices from $33 to $40 it has some advantages over it's more sophisticated brother. 

What do you think? What are your recommendations for educational toys in this age group?
