Toys Which Teach

Every parent wants the best education for their children. That’s why we try so hard to find the best schools and get our kids names on the list. While they’re sure to do amazing things no matter what, a good education will make their lives easier. And, good schools are the best way to achieve it.

But, it’s possible we focus so much on school that we miss out on the other aspects in which education could play a part. Teachers and hours spent in school can only take them so far. To provide the best education, you may need to consider their learning elsewhere. If you’ve never thought of this before, your child may not currently do any learning at home. This isn’t good news, but it’s an easy issue to rectify. There are a wealth of educational toys and kits which would make all the difference. That’s not to say, of course, that your child has to be learning all the time. But, stocking up on the right pieces means they can learn, and have fun. Here are a few things worth considering.

A globe ($14.00 – $165.00)

A globe of the world is a fantastic place to start. Here, all your little one’s geography needs will be taken care of. This is the best way to show your kids countries and their locations. And, by incorporating this into games, they won’t even realize they’re learning. Prices vary, but a good guide is anywhere from $14.00 up to $165/$170. Anything else may not be worthwhile until they’re older.

Fossils ($45+)

Kids have an innate fascination with fossils, especially little boys. So, a fossil of their own is sure to go down well. Bear in mind that this isn’t the cheapest option. You may want to start modest, with something like a beginners megalodon teeth, which comes in at around $45. If that goes down well, upgrade to more serious pieces. If they build a collection, your kids are sure to keep these for years. And, by studying them, they’ll gain an incredible understanding of history, and how fossils form.

A science kit ($10+)

If you’re after something a little more modestly priced, why not look into a science kit?. Any child will be willing to turn their hands to some experiments. Starter kits are often as low as $10. And, if that goes well, consider some more intricate options. If your kids take a shine for science, you could even consider getting them a microscope set!

A telescope ($50+)

If you’ve got a young astrologer on your hands, a telescope may well be the best option. With this, they’ll be able to study the stars and gain a better understanding of everything spacey. Though you may worry about the cost, basic telescopes aren’t as expensive as you may think. Some models cost as little as $50. So, why not see how your child gets on? If they like it, a more expensive model could be in their future!
