Toys Designed to Stimulate the Brain

The most frequent question I get is from parents or parents to be. They want to know what they should do to develop their children’s brains and cognitive skills. Check out VTech toys (no affiliation). They are guided by a panel of experts and offer toys designed to stimulate learning and cognitive development at all ages from birth to 8 years. You can even search for products based upon your child’s age.

From baby’s learning laptop to the classic Peek-at-Me Bunny and the award winning sit-to-stand alphabet train (shown) each toy is designed to create a teachable moment that ranges from learning about body parts to mastering language. While the impact of specific toys might be unclear, the basic principles they are based on seem sound.

Very interested to hear from readers that have used brain building toys.
