Early development toys:Learning toys in early childhood development often focus on pretend play activities and manipulatable objects that represent numbers and letters.

Many early development toys are designed for children aged from birth to preschool, and they represent some popular categories, including:

  • Gears and manipulatives: Chunky gear sets teach preschoolers the basics of physics, while manipulatable objects, like small figures and three-dimensional letters, help to reinforce early math and language skills.
  • Pretend play toys: Pretend play toys include play food sets, fake dollar bills and coins, costumes and a large variety of other toys that help small children imagine themselves in different roles. Look for kits that reflect budding interests in your child, like cooking, shopping, caring for animals or being a scientist.

  • Digging and excavation kits: Cleverly built to encase a small toy in clay, digging and excavation kits are a fun way to practice fine motor skills while learning about archaeology. While some excavation kits hide one or more surprise toys inside the rock, others list their contents in the item's product description. Using a small pick or shovel that's typically included with the rock, children can slowly chip away at the stone to reveal each hidden prize.
