30 Educational Toy Gifts

From DIY Microscope Kits to Connected Play Mats for Toddlers

— December 22, 2020 — Life-Stages
With more parents trying to curb screen time to help ensure their kids develop important skills, these educational toy gifts are perfect for those looking for an interactive experience that youth of all ages can enjoy while they learn new skills.

The Hoppi Box is a subscription kit that's suitable for kids anywhere from zero to three-years-old, which is designed to help them develop their fine motor, cognitive, and social skills. Each kit comes with a selection of educational toys that are chosen by experts, with each one offering a research-backed skill-building activity.

Another noteworthy inclusion comes from Crayola, with the brand launching a flower kit that teaches kids the "science of water wicking." The kits include 12 paper flowers, which kids can customize using safe dyes that will color the flowers and create unique patterns.
