Educational Toys For Children

by Tested_to_Destruction

Toys are not just for fun. Most of them are created to enhance your child's development. From motor skills to mental development, toys can aid in many developmental milestones.

Infants learn much from something as simple as from colorful blocks. The colors and textures provides great stimulation for their developing sense. A toddler's gait is improved with their pull and push toys, since motor development is one of the highlights of this age group. As your child grows to preschooler, dolls and kitchen games are perfect for their imaginative and role playing endeavors.

They teach real life situations and circumstances. The variety of electronic games that are now available promote mental development and enhance a child's writing and reading skills. Toys are not just for sole reason of entertainment. Through the use of them children are having lots of fun without realizing they are learning in the process - just as nature intended!

LEGO Creationary Game (3844)

This particular Lego product  brings fun and excitement to building with bricks. The game consist of 1 dice, 1 minifigure, 1 microfigure, 1 rule booklet, 96 cards and 338 LEGO pieces.

There are many ways to play the game but most often the rule would tell you that a player would pick the card and try to create the structure or design; while the other players guess the structure. This makes building structures interesting as the entire set could make it possible for 3 to 8 children to play at any one time.

You may well find it equally enjoyable since this is not just a great game for children, but the entire family as well. LEGO blocks are known for (generally) being a solitary game, but Creationary allows for multiplayers. Your kids will have fun (while learning in the process), plus it's a really cool educational toy for children above 5 years of age.

Qwirkle Board Game

Family games are one of the best ways for children to learn, as they're not just learning through play, they're also strengthening family bonds. This Qwirkle Board Game is played like scrabble, the difference being that you're not playing with words here but with colors and shapes.

The problem with scrabble is that players should be at the same educational level to make the game interesting. However with Quirkle, they can compete with adults as everyone is limited to matching up colors and shapes. No need to dig into individual vocabularies. Despite the games simplistic principles, it stimulates the thinking process and problem solving strategies.  A great multi-player game, and a great method of encouraging mental development in children.

Teach your child new words with Bananagrams, one of the world's most popular educational games for all ages. Like scrabble, this game is based on devising words from lettered tiles. The difference is, compared to scrabble, this one doesn't use a board and the letters don't have special scores. Learning is solely centered on new words and spelling.

The great thing about the game is that it allows children to compete with adults, and the point system is simple for a child to understand. Furthermore, kids aren't  intimidated by the enormous scores adults can make. It's all just a huge game to children and, if the adults play fair and lower their own abilities to match better their child's, it's amazing how much fun and laughter you can have.


Bananagrams is a fast and fun word game that requires no pencil, paper or board. All you need is a table. One hand can be played in as little as five minutes. It is great for fa...
