What is your toddlers favorite educational toy? Trying to expand the amount of toys we have and he seems to prefer learning toys to pretend play toys. He's almost two.

Melissa and Doug is great! That's what he mostly likes/is able to do.

The Violet one that our daughter received when she was a baby worked great while we had her but my twins both received scouts and we were unable to ever get them to work but when they DO work they're pretty great. 

My 2 1/2 year olds like anything from Vtech, we got them this interactive toolbox kit for Christmas that was a pretty big hit and Vtechs go cars that come with tracks were a big hit as well.

My kid loved the food that Velcro connected and could be cut apart by the wooden knife at that age. Melissa and Doug have amazing toys like that to decorate cakes, cut veggies, make pizzas, you name it.
Another favorite was always any of the Fisher Price Little People sets. The preschool, playground, and airplane were big hits here.
I also can't say enough good things about Playmobil toys, but most of those sets are for slightly older kids.

My boys were starting to get into wooden chunky puzzles and wooden train tracks at that time. Awesome for problem solving (but can really kick up the frustration).

Melissa & Doug, like mentioned above. Their shape sorters and things were great.

A wooden tool bench.

Big chunky trucks/vehicles. I think it was Tonka that made a really cute line.

I got my daughter a set of large cardboard blocks.  She had so much fun with those for so many years.  She played with them until she was like 6 or 7.
