High-tech learning toys for every age

Engaging developmental toys for baby often feature exciting lights and sounds, like toddler activity walkers, crib mobiles, and plush pals that play music. Many educational toys for toddlers and preschoolers mimic grownups’ smart devices: starter versions of tablets, smartwatches, digital cameras, laptops, and smartphones that teach letters, numbers, shapes, animals, and even other languages. Some of the top new learning toys incorporate interactive elements, like pretend pets, and electronic train or car tracks that have coding blocks that control the movement of the engine or cars. Other popular education toys include modular sets that teach kids about building electrical circuits, and exciting robotics toys that involve kids creating habitats for bug-like mini robots or building robots that battle in an arena setting. Some of the top-rated learning toys are learn-to-code systems that let kids use tangible blocks to program educational tablet games or art-making apps. Older kids can also experiment with building sets and STEM (science, tech, engineering, and math) kits that result in working models and even radio-controlled vehicles.

So many subjects to explore

Early development toys that teach your baby or toddler letters, numbers, colours, shapes, animals, and more are building core language and math skills. Preschool educational toys, games, and puzzles can help kids further develop those core skills, as well as music fundamentals and early science concepts like cause-and-effect and gravity. Toys like animal figures, bug-hunting sets, and dinosaur dig kits can nurture an interest in biology, zoology, and archaeology. At-home experiment kits can teach fun lessons in basic chemistry, and earth science, and DIY circuit sets teach the basics of electronics. Marble runs are an exciting way to experiment with physics, and scientific tools like telescopes can spark a love of space exploration.
