For those with 5 year olds...*Edit*

What's the best learning toy they have? I'm thinking about getting an InnoTab 2. Is it worth the money?

*EDIT* Let me clear this up... It's for my daughter's birthday. She has blocks, books and of course, me, to help her learn things. She's a very smart girl and I would like to get her something special.

I can't give her myself as a birthday present. I teach her a lot of things but she deserves a nice, exciting gift for her birhday.

My dd is 5 and has the original innotab and now has a leap pad2. I prefer the leap pad2 and my dd does as well. It's a great system. I didn't like the first innotab so I didn't consider buying the 2 when it came out.

She has blocks already. She doesn't have anything "techy" so that's why I was considering the InnoTab.

Nintendo DS.

There are some learning and educational games for it. My mom bought the innotab 2 for my son and he didn't like it nearly as much as the DS.

Children can learn with ANYthing!   ;-)      The more "open-ended" the better~

Art supplies are a huge hit here!     The easel was/is a big hit.    Depending on the budget, a sandbox or just gardening tools...     Bike, scooter, roller skates, rope swing, outside toys of all kinds.     Dolls & clothes, sling, cradle, accessories.     Crafting projects with fibers, any material.     Musical instruments large or small.     Classes are good- if she likes swimming, dance, ballet, skating.    Maybe a trip to a fun park or a play in a theater or a trip somewhere or a museum in town...     My lists can go on, lol!
