It’s difficult to beat LeapFrog when it comes to the greatest toys for toddlers under the age of five, and this sticky letter collection is right up there along with its high-quality offerings. There are 26 speaking letters that are all singing and dancing (well, not really). Tad the frog will start singing about the letter’s names and sounds once the kids insert each character in the passenger window and press it. If the button is pressed twice, Tad will pronounce a word that starts with the letter and utilise it in a phrase. This is an excellent toy for teaching alphabet learning and phonics to younger children, which is an important step in helping them learn to read. Interacting with the magnetic squares (which are designed solely for simple use by young hands) improves coordination and muscle control, which are crucial for learning to write. The joy doesn’t end there: kids can start dancing along to three main learning songs, featuring ‘Wheels on the Bus,’ by pressing the music note. The magnetic school bus and squares stick to your refrigerator or any other magnetic object and are a fun method for young children to learn letter names, letter sounds, and basic vocabulary.
Like it or not, there is genuine debate about which type of magnetic tiles provides the best experiences for students. Magna Tiles are consistently rated as the best standard and most affordable, therefore we chose this set. There are a total of 100 pieces, all of which are brilliantly coloured squares and triangles. The aim is that the toy will inspire hours of creative play, with kids attempting to build whatever they can imagine, so increasing their arithmetic, science, spatial, tactile, and motor skills. These are a little on the pricey side for a toy, but they are strong, safe, and built to last: some of the less costly sets are less robust and shatter more easily. Plus, with 100 pieces, even if more than one child is playing, there must be no shortage of Magna Tiles, allowing them to build bigger and greater structures.
While it’s true that many magnetic games are constructed of plastic, that is not the case with this set. This merchandise, which is made up of 24 components, is modest but well-crafted and will last for years. There’s no lead, no plastic, and no little bits, and the parts are covered in a non-toxic liquid varnish, so you may let your kids chew on them without fear of health consequences. This toy encourages innovative, unplanned play that improves fine motor abilities, balance, problem-solving, narrative, and pattern identification. The set’s colours are brilliant (thus the name “sunset”), and Tegu is a socially aware brand. They are based in Honduras and produce the blocks in their own toy factory, generating jobs for the locals, in whom they also invest in growth and development training. We’re sold on a socially responsible, environmentally friendly toy that will keep kids entertained for hours.
This is a fantastic toy that allows users to make their own refrigerator magnets from start. The package includes tiles, magnets, a paint strip, and a paintbrush. Kids may let their creativity run loose as they paint original designs on every 2 inches by 2-inch tile, allowing them to build a Cubist-inspired collage scene if they so desire. After painting the tile, youngsters attach a magnet to the side, and the tiles stick to the refrigerator door or any other magnetic object. Where ever are they likely to discover a hand-painted magnet? The set is also great as a one-of-a-kind gift for children to offer friends or relatives.
Melissa & Doug is an American toy company focused on creating high-quality, simple-to-use toys that inspire children to engage in hands-on, imaginative play. While the twenty magnetic dinosaurs ‘draw’ dino-loving youngsters, this set promises to help with hand-eye coordination and motor abilities. Each dinosaur magnet is hand-painted in vibrant colours and made of sturdy wood (no plastic here), and they pack neatly in its wooden container. If your children aren’t as obsessed with dinosaurs as you are, there are additional sets of magnets looking like queens or domesticated animals, as well as numbers and alphabet, if you’re looking for a toy to help them with their reading and writing.
Another item from 4M, a firm that creates kits, sets, and toys to boost kids’ students ’ creativity beyond the classroom, has been chosen. This science set includes ten activities and games that educate children about magnetic phenomena and centre around the two primary components of a horseshoe magnet and a magnetic wand. Children can build their own magnetic toys and constructions, such as a magnet yacht and a magnetic racer. This enables students to learn important areas such as physics, art, and design, as well as magnets and robotics. It’s an excellent set for getting youngsters involved in science experiments and educating them about the importance of creativity in STEM education.
This is a timeless toy that will undoubtedly divert children’s attention away from their devices. We like how this toy has a lot of extraterrestrial elements on it, such as devil horns and a revolving eyeball at the top of the board, which appeals to kids’ imaginations. The board is also available in three colours: blue, pink, or purple, making it a perfect choice for children of all genders. Because of its modest weight and the presence of a convenient handle on one end, the doodle board is extremely portable. The doodle board’s drawable surface comes in four vivid colours for youngsters to select from (blue, red, yellow, and green), and when they’re finished, they can wipe the surface completely and start again with the sliding eraser at the bottom. An excellent strategy to keep younger children away from pens… especially if your children have taken to scribbling on walls! Plus, if you’re concerned that your children may misplace the magnetic pen, don’t worry: it’s linked to the board with string. Teachers can draw beside their students with the free stickers and magnetic pen that come with the doodle board; stickers can be used to decorate doodles or just for fun anywhere. The toy is composed of non-toxic ABS plastic and is extremely strong and long-lasting. We are major admirers of this instructive toy, which not only encourages children’s creative thinking while honing their artistic skills but also allows them to practise writing.

Plus, if your kids are really into it, Melissa & Doug has another set of similar toys, but this time with insects – it’s time to wake ready up and personal with all things creepy crawly.
There are a few magnetic theatres offered, but we chose this one since it is totally constructed of wood, whereas some rivals’ figures are made of paper with magnets attached, making the toy more susceptible to damage. This is a truly unusual magnetic toy for youngsters who are interested in being creative and engaging in the narrative, creativity, and expression but are less driven by science and all things STEM. The set comprises five wooden figures that are all characters in the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale, allowing children to retell the storey in their own unique way.
