Part of what makes preschool fun is learning through play but picking great toys for your preschool child can be a challenge. We prefer toys that teach and encourage imagination rather than toys that require a button for instant gratification. Toys for preschool should be developmentally appropriate.
Melissa and Doug toys are top on our list. The wooden toys are made to last and without electronic components it. Melissa and Doug toys all teach basic skills and motor development. We love the nesting blocks and shape sorter clock. Many Melissa and Doug toys fit with the Montessori teaching method quite well.
Green Toys are a great option for parents looking for an environmentally friendly option for their families. Green poys are made from recycled materials.
Toys for preschool should encourage learning, be strong and sturdy to hold up to busy kids. Preschoolers are ruff on toys so extra quality is worth the extra cost.
