Best Learning Toys 2017

Ages 2-6 are the time in your child’s life where they will take in the most information. If we want them to get a great head start, we need to start introducing them to core academic concepts. But children at this age learn differently to older children. They can’t just sit down in front of a book or educational video and learn. They need to interact with adults, and their toys, to experiment and discover. It makes sense: at this age a child does not understand enough about language and the world to read a sentence and completely make sense of it. Instead, it needs to be turned into a game. These are the top ten best learning toys for toddlers and young children, which will help cover all your preschool learning fundamentals, like music, math, and jobs.
