Me and My Educational Toys for Kids: A Gift that keeps on Giving

Educational toys for kids was certainly not on my list back then probably. Because the selections were limited to square hole round peg and the rolling calculator with moving eyes and ping pong balls in its clear plastic head. Yep I’m sure that was it lol. Maybe if I had some cooler selections to choose from, my parents would have opened a list to at least one or two educational toys. And then either promptly fainted from shock or checked to see what the aliens had done with their child.

Educational toys for kids

The holiday season is upon us again and for most of us it brings fond memories of trees, presents, TV specials, cookies, food, and music. Walking through stores with our parents and making that mental list we delightfully wrote down for our parents when we got home, like Ralphie’ from “A Christmas Story”. We had that “Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle” on the list. And we were disappointed when we opened our gifts to an ugly sweater. The inevitable packages of underwear and socks, and possibly a cool new toy or game. We could try out as soon as everyone had unwrapped their gifts.

The world of educational toys for kids, has gotten much cooler from when I was growing up. With advances in technology and smaller more compact toys having the ability to do ever increasing tasks with everything from spelling and grammar, hand eye coordination, memory learning, and the big one Math (Basic all the way up to Advanced Equations). We have stepped into an age of giving our children the ability to gain knowledge and form concepts and theories at even earlier ages and allowing them to do this at their own pace. When they are ready for it has shown increases in intelligence and overall human advancement more so than ever before.
