Learning Toys - Education Made Fun

by Tested_to_Destruction

Toys are not just made for fun. Though entertainment is the basic reason why toys are made, many also foster learning and are actually designed precisely for that dual purpose.

Any toy can be a learning toy - it all depends on the age and the perception of parents and kids. A colorful block promotes a baby’s eye development. Even though it's simple, your baby’s senses are stimulated while your baby is playing.

Of course there are a myriad of other toys, many of which have been specifically designed to encourage your baby to play, and, through that play, develop key skills which will allow them to move through life.

We've Always Played

As your baby grows up, the toys become more complex and sophisticated. A block all by itself would no longer be enough for a preschooler the way it was for your baby. Simple wooden blocks will be traded for a Lego set and so on.

Soon there will come a time when the toys will have parts that need assembly. And throughout these changing stages, your child continues to learn. Toys have always been part of our learning process. In subtle ways, they play a role in our children's education, and that's why it is so important to choose the right age-specific toys for children.

LeapFrog Scribble and Write

It's fun to have your children writing their ABCs at three years old. Like paper and pen, this Leapfrog Scribble and Write toy enables a child to write and draw on its surface.
It features four learning modes that let your child write, scribble, draw shapes and pictures, and practice writing the alphabet and numbers in both upper case and lower case.

It features a child-sized stylus which is just the right size for a child's small hand. It offers accurate verbal instructions on how to form the letters - or, your child may turn off the voice when they know what to do.

Some children even treat this toy as a kiddie Smart Phone. Don't be surprised if your child plays with it for hours, and don't be surprised if their handwriting gets to be much better than that of an older sibling! This is a fantastic educational toy for children around 4 years old.

Scrabble Flash Cubes

Scrabble has always been a great game for all ages: it's not only fun, but it also encourages learning new words from other players.
There are three different (addictive!) games that can be played with the five tiles: a solo game; one with friends; and an elimination-style game. It has a timer that forces you to really hurry and form your words before the time runs out.

The game moves so fast that you may not have time to check the more unusual words in a dictionary, so you can count on learning a lot of new ones! The packaging is neat, everything is stored in a compact, sleek, portable box.

It's great for all ages, and it can be played anywhere: in the car during road trips or at home on the coffee table. Whether it's a relaxing way to unwind after school or a dash of mental energy for starting the day, this game is an appealing way to update a traditional game with technology.
