6 Fun and Educational Toys That You Need to Check Out

Thursday, October 12, 2023
There are so many educational toys on the market that sometimes it's hard to know which ones are the best and which ones are right for your kids. I had a chance to try out some fun new educational toys from different companies over the past few months, so here are my favorite picks to share with you. And just a reminder that no one pays me to tell you this. If I try out a toy and I don't like it, I certainly won't tell you to go buy it. And I try to tap into my inner educator (I was a teacher for over 10 years, you know), as well as my mom radar, to determine what you all might like. So read on for my educational toy picks!

Magna-tiles Downhill Duo

With this MAGNA-TILES® Downhill Duo 40-Piece set, kids can play with their first-ever, fully-magnetic set featuring figures, dashers, ramps and roads. The versatile pieces create multiple building options, and kids can build a large mega ramp, set up a side-by-side downhill duo race or create rolling hills to cruise along. Magnetic figures add a new level of imaginative play. The figures include magnets in the arms, feet and head to interact with existing MAGNA-TILES® pieces. Kid-powered dashers are specially designed to ride along the ramps and roads for frustration-free play – their wheels ride on the outside of tiles and a small brake on the bottom regulates speed.
