49 Examples of Educational Toys

From Culturally Diverse Dolls to Architectural Modular Toys

— May 24, 2014 — Eco
These examples of educational toys show the world the importance parents and guardians are putting on education. As everyone settles more comfortably into the age of technology, children are exposed to so much that require more explanations than ever before. Of course, adults are also becoming used to getting more bang for their buck as companies and designers provide greater incentives to choose their product over their competitors. Often this leads to a blend of function and form.

Chalkboard globes and LEGO kits are simple examples of educational toys that are hitting the market. Yet as children grow up tech-savvy before the age of two, other products such as code-teaching robots and stuffed toy smartphone cases are being proposed and released as well. This opens up a lot of possibilities for other industries.
