  • I am not sure how you feel about electronic toys but my son LOVES his leapster. We got him one last Christmas and he plays with it all the time. We travel a lot and he always has it on the plane and long car rides and it has been heaven sent!

  • I forgot to mention that they have a ton of educational games and these are the ones that we let me play. Numbers, letters, spelling, reading, basic math...all fun and at his level!

  • You could try getting some puzzles. My 3 yr old loves them. (Plus they're pretty cheap!) And you can both sit and do them together!
