I just had a request via Twitter (follow me @Mimistores) about small toys for pre-school fun and learning about abcs and numbers. I though that it would be a good opportunity to share some ideas with everyone and ask for other suggestions. Besides, I don’t like to restrict myself to 140 characters!
My favourite fun and educational pre-school toys are:
- Doowell Alphabet Animals - Magnetic animal shapes with corresponding letters
- Shapes and Numbers - A very simple wooden puzzle that will get little ones working things out
- Sorting and Teaching Clock from John Crane - A big, bright wooden clock
- Triangular Activity Centre from Big Jigs - With spinning blocks and an abacus, this toy is suitable right up to school age
- Fishies - A very simple linking game for the younger child to encourage colour recognition and counting
- Magnetic Blocks - Easy construction set for little ones
- Alphabet and Number Blocks - No home should be without them!
- Fantacolor Daisy - A chunky peg board and one of my favourite toys
- Djeco Wooden Puzzle - Shapes or Colours
- Magnetic Numbers and Letters
- 100 Wooden Blocks - So many ways to play and learn with these
These are just a few of my favourites. We have carefully thought about and picked all the toys stocked on www.Mimitoys.ie so it’s hard not to list every toy we have! If I have left off one of your favourites, or one you would recommend to other customers, please leave a comment.
