2: Best Educational: VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk
Sometimes for younger kids, a fully electronic toy isn’t the best because you want to encourage them to partake in more tactile creativity while also learning via electronic capabilities. This VTech desk does just that.
When it’s in desk form, it comes with a variety of content sheets that teach children different things from basic anatomy to geometry to letters and words. It does so with bright colors and pictures that connect into three electronic mechanisms: an LED screen to highlight numbers and letters and give feedback, a number dial touch pad for learning math, and a mini radio for playing the tunes that go with the lessons. The content packs are expandable with separate cartridges so once your child masters these basics, you’ll keep them learning and asking for more fun.Read more..
