We not only have wooden toys, open ended toys, but we also have those toys that light up and are pretty much the “one and done toys”.
These toys incorporate video game consoles and tablets which are filled with parental controls but incorporate some of my littles favorite characters such as Star Wars and Paw Patrol for learning with.
I love educational games that include some of the play modes that littles can work with for learning in a fun way.
Here are our top picks for educational apps and educational games we love that can be used on a tablet as well.
These are usually given from friends and family and let me tell they do get used as well, but..
NOT as much as the toys that spark imagination and creativity! 🙂
