10 Qualities of Excellent Educational Toys for
Preschool If you are home schooling or running a
day care or are simply a caring grandparent, you
will be looking for the best educational toys for
preschool. Educational toys for preschoolers help
kids reach their developmental milestones. For
preschoolers these goals will include emotional
and social skills, color recognition, alphabet
and numeral awareness, fine and gross motor
skills and early math, reading and engineering
concepts. For more information click here. best

When choosing educational toys for preschool,
here are some of the qualities to look for 1.
You will want high quality durable toys that will
last a long time and stand up to the challenges
of toddlers and preschoolers. Look for toys made
of wood or strong flexible plastic. These will
sustain the inevitable dropping and unintentional
abuse from the kids. For more information click

educational toys for preschoolers need to be
washable and safe - no rough edges, no small bits
to swallow. 3. Bright solid colors are great
for early color recognition, but also shades of
colors are a bonus for comparisons. 4.
Educational toys for preschoolers need to be age
appropriate. Don't choose toys with complex
instructions or you will be playing with them.

little hands. Thepieces should be easily
manipulated and fit smoothly together,otherwise
it will be a frustrating toy. Good quality
toddler sized pegboard sets have pegs that fit
snugly into the base and can be also be stacked
to make a tower. 6. Educational toys that help
kids practice multiple skills are economic and
more challenging. An example of this is colorful
jumbo stringing beads,

which are great for fine motor, color
recognition, sorting, matching and sequencing. If
the beads have various shapes, you are adding
geometric awareness. 7. Toys that grow with
children are again economic and can be used in
different ways depending on the developmental
level of the child. One of the best toys for 2
year old boys is jumbo nuts and bolts with wheels
and cross pieces. Very young children will simply
use their fine motor skills to screw together the
nuts and bolts. Older children will design and
build vehicles and structures. Another example is
wooden alphabet blocks for 3 year olds. This is
one of the great traditional toys for 3 year olds
for letter and alphabet awareness 2 year olds
will use the blocks for making towers. For more

for preschoolers are great if they can be used
both individually and cooperatively. 9. Toys
should be challenging enough to encourage problem
solving but success oriented to limit
frustration. 10. Finally toys should be fun and
entertaining. They should be able to hold the
child's attention and encourage focus and
perseverance. There is a huge variety of good
quality educational toys for preschoolers. These
guidelines should help with your selection. For
