  • My 22 month old son loves his Leapfrog Fridge Phonics. He learned all of his uppercase letters by 20 months, the lowercase wasn't hard after that, and he's learning what sound they make too!

  • I try to stick with learning toys. The Leapfrog and Vtech toys are great! My sons favorites have always been his Baby Tad (leapfrog toy) the Vtech Alphabet Town, and his Legos (the really big ones)

  • We have blocks, puzzles, shapes and colors type toys, and toys that teach biggest to smallest. We try to stay away from the elctronic type toys as much as possible.

  • We have a lot of V-tech and Leap Frog as well - mostly to encourage speech. My 5 year old has autism and is almost non-verbal. A previous post mentioned the Fridge Magnets. We have the ABCs of food. She used those magnets to make requests for water, milk, cheese, etc. When talking about educational toys though, don't discount dolls, dishes, push cars, teddy bears - the so-called low-tech things. We have had to teach imaginative play to Miss V. She sat our dinner table for months before she sat her little table with her play dishes and food. That idea was too abstract for her.
