On that note, I have accumulated a short list of 3 of the best educational toys for toddlers. These baubles, gadgets, and knickknacks are designed to have a supremely positive impact on your cutie’s development, giving them the perfect learning experience while you provide the perfect learning environment.
And my picks for awesome educational toys are:
Melissa and Doug Shape Sorting Cube
Shape sorting is a tried-and-true developmental skill that we all have experience with, and Melissa & Doug have put their own spin on this classic. The colors are bold, primary shades in varying shapes, such as a star, square, heart, and triangle. They are prevalent and chunky, perfect for fitting into a matching wooden box with shapely cutouts. These types of toys teach memorization, colors, counting, hand-eye coordination, and imaginative thinking. Plus, this toy is long-lasting for generations of playing and learning.
ALEX Toys Early Learning Button Art
I love anything art-related! I think a creative outlet is one of the best things you could offer your toddler, regardless of age – and it definitely helps that Button Art is such as positive, developmental influence. There are buttons of varying colors – bright, vibrant, vivid, and wonderful, and there are 46 that easily nestle into a single, artsy tray. The objective is for kids to finish 10 pictures by snapping the buttons where they are supposed to go. It improves fine motor skills, creative thinking, and hand-eye coordination – all things that growing toddlers need most.
The best educational toys for toddlers are those that provide learning without letting on to kids that they are learning – and this book is one of the best. You can foretell that the lessons in the Discover Book are simply fun and awesome because of the front cover. There are primary colors in vivid, vibrant shades, attention-grabbing light-up buttons, and a trio of dancing, fluffy, adorable animal. Those aspects alone are enough to get any toddler excited. And then, when you open it up, there are 5 easy-turn pages brimming with sing-along songs, nursery rhymes, and a high-flying, cutesy butterfly to lead the way.
