Our Favorite Educational Toys

Sorry for the lack of posts.  I may not be around here much this week either.  We have our realtor and a photographer coming over Thursday morning to take pictures.  We've been busy doing some painting, taking stuff off walls, cleaning walls, cleaning woodwork, etc.  The rest of my week will be eliminating clutter, cleaning windows and cleaning the same things up 185 times.

Yep, this about sums it up.
Since I love reading other mom's blogs and seeing what fun things they do with their kids, I thought I would put together a list of our favorite toys.  I am always looking for fun, but educational, toys for the kids.  So leave me a comment if you have any that you think we'd like!  I've done a post previously for our favorite iPad apps, which I could probably update because we have some new ones since then.  But feel free to share those too :)

Imaginets (I mentioned these in my Preschool posts, but we love them!)

KidKraft Kitchen - Both kids love this and play with it daily.  I love seeing their imaginations at work.
Counting Bears - We have had these for a long time, but still love them and use them for so many different things.

Bead Maze - I can't find the exact one that we have.  I think we got it at Target.

All Melissa & Doug Puzzles - They're just the best!

Can you tell we LOVE Melissa & Doug?  I keep these in a lower cabinet in the kitchen.  Kase usually plays with them while I'm cooking dinner.

What are some of your favorites?


  1. We have most of those too, great picks!

    My girls each got a Boogie Board for xmas and they've been a huge hit! Basically it's an electronic notepad. It's thin and portable so great for the car or taking to restaurants, etc. Raya draws "real" pictures and likes to copy letters, etc. and Brielle does lots of doodling and she likes to make "signs" haha.
