  1. Sweet I really liked your article, 

    I think that buying toys that actually teach children is the way to go.

    I really like that they are ways to interact with children and not just give them the toy and leave them to their own devices. I really liked the science toys from another of your articles.

    Knowledge stays with you as you grow up being entertained and learning new things with supervision is great.

    Good article and great niche

    1. Thank you, Michael. Glad that you like the article. Yes, this is what I am passionate for. Toys serve a lot of different functions, not just for entertainment.

  2. Sorry Babsie, I accidentally pressed the wrong button. When I tried to get back to that page, I couldn’t change the option.

  3. Hi Fiona,

    These “maths learning toys for preschoolers” you described on this page are a great idea to get the kids into the learning mode so they will excel in school. My favorite is the “Pretend & Play Calculator Cash Register”, you know even adults will use it. It doesn’t have to be you working in front of a cash register, but I mean is we all count money; young or old :).

    I like the facts that you briefly but to the point describing each toy, such as, the name of it, age for, and its purpose, but can you also recommend the online destination to buy it because I didn’t see you mentioned it anywhere 🙂

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your toys for kids. I feel parents anywhere will find this to be a very informative piece of information they can use to prepare their kids for a brighter future.
